Laura, back with three MoJo must-reads today. And one rhetorical question: Why are so many obese smokers against health care reform?

1) Is the embassy scandal a new Abu Ghraib? Here’s why the ArmorGroup’s Animal House antics may fuel the Afghan insurgency.

Laura McClure hosts weekly podcasts and is a writer and editor for Mother Jones. Read her recent investigative feature on lifehacking gurus here.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
