The Center for American Progress hosted a discussion on whether a military draft was necessary to meet overseas military commitments. An article in the Washington Monthly had argued that an all-volunteer army was no longer sufficient to maintain military readiness and operational demands placed on troops serving either in combat zones or peace keeping missions. 

Phillip Carter, a lawyer and former Army captain who writes for Washington Monthly, argued for the draft. Lawrence Korb, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, spoke against the draft. Columnist Mark Shields moderated the discussion. close
