Q & A With Dana Priest
A Post reporter for 14 years, Priest began as an assistant foreign editor, worked on the Metropolitan staff and then covered regulatory issues and the White House health care initiative. For the last five years she has written about the U.S. military. Priest has covered the military's increasing role in implementing U.S. foreign policy overseas with a series on a worldwide Special Forces training program, an unprecedented U.S. military program to reconstruct the defense departments of Central European countries and the Army's peacekeeping deployments to Bosnia and Kosovo. In September, she produced a three-part series on NATO's air campaign against Kosovo.
