Hello, I'm Anne Barnard, a New York Times reporter, here to answer your questions about my recent investigation of the Syrian government's sprawling system of torture prisons and my six years covering Syria and the Middle East as The Times's Beiru...
I've been based in the Middle East for 11 of the last 16 years, originally in Baghdad for the Boston Globe. I'm now on a one-year leave from The Times as the Edward R. Murrow Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. I've reported from all around the Arab world, as well as from Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Haiti, and of course the United States.
I'm a native New Yorker now trying to get used to home again.
Thank you everyone, I have to hop off now, but thanks for your questions and I'll try to check in again later.
