WASHINGTON -- The Selective Service System is making plans to test its draft machinery in case Congress and President Bush need it, even though the White House says it doesn't want to bring back the draft.
The agency is planning a comprehensive test _ not run since 1998 _ of its military draft systems, a Selective Service official said. The test itself would not likely occur until 2009.
