Peter Finn is the National Security Editor at The Washington Post. He joined the paper in 1995 from The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and first worked in Virginia for the Metro Section. Beginning in 1998, Finn spent 10 years overseas for the paper as the bureau chief in its Warsaw, Berlin and Moscow bureaus. He reported on the 1999 war in Kosovo and its aftermath. Following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Finn covered terrorism for The Post, traveling extensively in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Persian Gulf. He was embedded with U.S. Special Forces during the invasion of Iraq. In all, Finn has reported from more than 60 countries for The Post. He returned to the Post’s newsroom in 2008 after covering the Russia-Georgia war and became a national security correspondent covering counterterrorism and U.S. detention operations, including at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which he has visited multiple times to report on military commission trials. In 2013, he was appointed National Security Editor and was part of a team of editors that oversaw the Pulitzer Prize winning stories based on the documents leaked by Edward Snowden. Finn is the co-author of “The Zhivago Affair: The Kremlin, the CIA and the Battle over a Forbidden Book,” published by Pantheon in June 2014. It was finalist for the National Book Critics Circle award for non-fiction and the Pushkin House award for best book on Russia. Finn is currently working on a new book, tentatively titled “Gertie’s War,” the story of an American woman serving with the OSS who was captured by the Nazis on the Western front in 1944 and escaped from Germany six months later.
