The author doing his draft-time duty at a recruiting station in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1960.As the struggle with the Islamic State, or ISIS, grows more intense and the Obama administration’s air-attack strategy—if the experts turn out to be correct—proves unavailing, the calls for boots on the ground in Syria and Iraq are likely to become more insistent. Despite the coalition of nations aligned against ISIS and other terrorist groups, no one doubts that any...

    As drones, cyberattacks and other high-tech developments change the nature of war, two prominent scholars argue that we must also rethink who fights our wars: the time has come, they say, to bring back the draft. The article, "Universal Conscription as Technology Policy," appears in Issues in Science and Technology, a journal published by the National Defense University. The authors are Mark Hagerott — a distinguished professor of cybersecurity studies at the U.S. Naval Academy, who was cited by Foreign Policy as one of "The Top 70 Military Thinkers "— and Brad Allenby, President's Professor of Sustainable Engineering, and Lincoln...
  • The Selective Service Just Reminded 14,000 Men Born Between 1893 and 1897 to Register for the Draft

    Are you a man born in Pennsylvania between 1893 and 1897? If so, a government agency may have just reminded you to register for the draft. The Selective Service System, which keeps a roster of potential men who can be enlisted in the military, inadvertently sent out mailings to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born in those years, reminding them to register. These letters were sent due to a computer error, the agency said in a message posted online, and the Selective Service has apologized to the families who have received these letters. The problem occurred following an automated data...

    No, the United States isn't trying to build a military force of centenarians. It just seems that way after the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation's military draft and warning that failure to do so is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment." The agency realized the error when it began receiving calls from bewildered relatives last week.

    At this time of Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for the U.S. military — not just for the usual reason that it protects us from our foes but also because it has the potential to save us from ourselves. As I make my rounds each day in the capital, chronicling our leaders’ plentiful foibles, failings, screw-ups, inanities, outrages and overall dysfunction, I’m often asked if there’s anything that could clean up the mess. My usual answer is a shrug and an admission that there’s no silver bullet. There are many possibilities — campaign spending limits, term limits, nonpartisan primaries, nonpartisan redistricting, a...

The survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research shows that 59 percent believe women should be included if a draft becomes necessary again, compared to 38 percent who say they should not be included. The poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon and the news site to mark the 40th anniversary of the end of the U.S. military draft, according to the website.....

I’m not a lawyer, but I understand the Constitution. I’m not a reproductive rights activist, but Iaced Biology 101. So I can tell you that Sandra and Barack are wrong when they classify women in combat and contraception as “women’s issues.” Military combat and contraception coverage are not women’s issues. They are freedom issues and freedom is just as important to men as it is to women. Liberals love dismissing “freedom issues” as “women’s issues”...

They say the millions of dollars the agency spends each year preparing for the possibility of a military draft is a waste of money. Reps. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., and Rep.

Women, who think that telling them to buy their own birth control, cupcake, is a “war on women,” will be seeing actual combat. Women who complain about a “rape culture” want girls out into the front lines as rape-bait if captured by the enemy (and those front lines will be six thousand miles away from the nearest Planned Parenthood clinic).

Obama wrote the March 1983 article, “Breaking the War Mentality,” about two campus groups, Arms Race Alternatives (ARA) and Student Against Militarism (SAM). Ben Smith of Politico (now at Buzzfeed) told readers that Obama’s views reflected the “very conventional campus liberalism of the time.” Wrong. Smith and the media failed to investigate what the activists at SAM were actually doing: encouraging students to break the law by not registering for the Selective Service and harassing military recruiters. Obama wrote that SAM “was...

The Selective Service System, or SSS, collects names of Americans for use by the Department of Defense in the event of a national emergency. On its website, it says it provides the nation "with a structure and a system of guidelines which will provide the most prompt, efficient, and...

    ObamaRelease YourRecords on 6:11 PM This article appeared in the Post & Email awhile ago. It pertains to Obama's mulitiple records of Selective Service registration. The Selective Service Registration records indicate that Obama received a 1H Classification. Class 1-H means "Registrant is Not Subject to Processing for Induction." Typically, registrants are given a 1-A Classification, which mean "Available for unrestricted military" If Obama received ANY other type of classification other than 1-A, he would have had to applied for it, which means that there is an additional file on him. If you read about the Selective Service Classifications at...

    Did President-elect Barack Hussein Obama commit a federal crime in September of this year? Or did he never actually register and, instead, did friends of his in the Chicago federal records center, which maintains the official copy of his alleged Selective Service registration commit the crime for him? It’s either one or the other, as indicated by the release of Barack Obama’s official Selective Service registration for the draft. A friend of mine, who is a retired federal agent, spent almost a year trying to obtain this document through a Freedom of Information Act request, and, after much stonewalling, finally...

    Dr. Orly Taitz, who has been on the East Coast splitting time between shooting a documentary with NMATV and ECR that will be out next week, while she also pounded the pavement in Washington looking for some venue in which to determine Obama's eligibility, updates ECR on her last day in Washington, including a meeting with William Chatfield, Director of Selective Service. How did he respond when confronted with documentation of Obama's duplicity? If you think this documentation raises questions that deserve to be answered, you can call, write, fax or email Mr. Chatfield at: Public and Intergovernmental Affairs Selective...

      No Curiosity Excited in the Mainstream Media About Obama’s Selective Service Registration Learning a Lesson from the 1990s Clintons Say what you will, Debbie Schlussel is interesting.Last week, the motor behind posted an interesting article about the Selective Service registration of Barack Obama. Multiple screenshots–complete with letters A-H highlighting areas that raised questions–make the provocative post must-reading for anyone who has wondered about the squeaky-clean, scrubbed Obama narrative.In our opinion, Schlussel gets some things right, while other items are a bit less clear. One claim Schlussel makes that falls into the “dubious” category: Obama signed his name with...
