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.

The Sudanese man pleaded guilty at a military commission in exchange for repatriation in 2012 and emerged in Qaeda propaganda in Yemen three years later.
A former commander of the most secretive part of the prison compound told how the accused plotters of the Sept. 11 attacks were guarded by a secret force dressed like U.S. troops.
What it was remains a mystery, and a federal court provided no information in halting it. Welcome to the military commission system.
