New at Mother Jones:

U.S. forces in Iraq recently uncovered an Iraqi-run torture center in Baghdad. But as David Enders reports, the torture chambers were common knowledge in Iraq long before being reported in the American press. (LINK)

Mark Levine writes on the Christian Peacemakers in Iraq and the failure of “cheap activism” among the antiwar movement here at home. (LINK)

Tom Engelhardt reflects on how 9/11 saved George W. Bush’s faltering presidency, and notes that even before the attacks, “a few aspects of our post-9/11 political world were quite recognizable even then.” (LINK)

Also, see Mark Fiore’s cartoon on the impending Stanley “Tookie” Williams execution. “A really good way to show that killing is wrong… is to kill people. Got it kids?” (LINK)

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
