Next Draft… Paul Rieckhoff, the ex-Army lieutenant who served as an infantry platoon leader with the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq and gave the Democrat’s rebuttle to one of President Bush’s radio addresses, has co-founded an organization called Operation Truth. From its web site , the group looks fairly non-partisan. Among other things, the site warns that the current overstretching of the military is going to lead to a draft. But it doesn’t actually say that a draft would be a bad thing. For what it’s worth, I happen to think it’d be a good thing. (I’ve talked to a quite a few ex-military folks who agree with me, by the way.)
