Where’s the Investigation?

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Today at Mother Jones:

Winslow Wheeler calls for an independent investigation of the response to Hurricane Katrina. (LINK) By the way, you can now find Mother Jones‘ complete Katrina coverage on one page. (LINK)

David Cole considers a book by John Yoo, a former deputy-assistant attorney general in the Bush White House and author of the infamous “torture memo” to Alberto Gonzales. Says Cole: “Yoo persuaded the Bush administration to untie its hand and abandon the constraints of the rule of law.” (LINK)

Finally, Greg Anrig, Jr. argues that the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court is an opportunity to show that the right is trying to pursue a radical judicial agenda. (LINK)

FACT:

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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
