Edward Hasbrouck

The United States has reached an impasse: Either end the draft entirely, and abolish the Selective Service system, or expand the draft to include women. Edward Hasbrouck joins us today to explain the outcome of last year's National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service (NCMNPS) and to inform us about the bill to abolish the draft (H.R.5492), as well as the possibility of a medical draft in the near future if the draft is not abolished.
