From the Post’s internal announcement:
We are very pleased to announce that Joby Warrick will be our new intelligence reporter, returning to National after an eight-year star turn in Investigative. We can’t think of anyone better to take on such a challenging assignment than Joby, who has proven again and again in recent years his ability to report and write compelling, original pieces on nearly impossible-to-crack subjects, whether secret bioweapons research or pre-war Iraq intelligence reporting. A Pulitzer winner in 1996 when he worked at the Raleigh News & Observer, Joby first came to the paper as National’s environmental reporter and brought a strong investigative and accountability focus to that beat as well. In a previous life, he also happened to have been a foreign correspondent at just the right time to witness the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of various eastern European Communist regimes. He’ll rejoin us in July.
