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, South Asia, North Africa and the Persian Gulf. He was embedded with U.S. Special Forces during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In all, Finn has reported from more than 60 countries for The Post. Finn was twice a Pulitzer Prize finalist for international reporting, as part of Post teams, for coverage of the wars in Kosovo and Afghanistan. His reporting on the war in Kosovo won the Robert F. Kennedy Grand Prize and International Print award and he has won the German Marshall Fund journalism prize for coverage of al-Qaeda in Europe, among other awards for his work. Finn returned to the Post’s newsroom in 2008; his last assignment overseas was the Russian-Georgian war. In Washington, Finn 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 which oversaw the Pulitzer Prize winning stories based on the documents leaked by Edward Snowden.
