Carol Rosenberg has covered the detention center at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and related news since before the first captives arrived on Jan. 11, 2002. She is the only reporter to cover the prisoners and war court there continuously, and has spent well over 1,000 nights at the remote base reporting on the story many in American journalism would prefer to ignore. She will continue that focus in 2019, thanks to this unique collaboration between The New York Times and the Pulitzer Center.

Defense lawyers in the 9/11 case now say that they have growing evidence that the F.B.I. played some role in the interrogations during the years when the suspects were in the secret prisons by feeding questions to the C.I.A., and that the C.I.A. kept a hand in the case after the prisoners were sent to Guantánamo.
A series of images by photographer Doug Mills for Carol Rosenberg's Pulitzer Center-supported project offers us a glimpse inside the world of Guantánamo Bay.
Majid Khan, who was tortured for three years in C.I.A. prisons before being sent to Guantánamo Bay, is pursuing a strategy with his legal team in an effort to force the United States government to acknowledge what was done to him — and to give him a measure of compensation for it.
