We’re Still at War: Photo of the Day for October 2, 2009

A convoy loaded with shipping containers waits for the signal to depart the Class IV Depot, Sept. 19, 2009, aboard Al Asad Air Base, Iraq. The lot is being closed as part of the drawdown in Iraq as excess materials are being sent to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. (U.S. Marine Corps photograph by Cpl. M. M.

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.
