Joby Warrick writes about the intelligence community for The Washington Post’s National desk. He previously spent eight years as a member of the investigative unit, specializing in coverage of WMD proliferation and weapons trafficking. His articles about international proliferation threats earned him the Overseas Press Club of America’s Bob Considine Award in 2004. His series of articles exposing radioactive hazards at a Kentucky uranium processing plant in 1999 was cited by congressional leaders as an impetus behind the creation of the first national compensation program for ailing nuclear-weapons workers.

Joby joined The Post in 1996 as national environmental reporter after working at The News and Observer in Raleigh, N.C., where he shared the Pulitzer Prize for public service for “Boss Hog,” a series that documented the political and environmental fallout caused by factory farming in the Southeast. He previously worked for United Press International in Vienna, where he covered the collapse of communist governments in Eastern Europe, and for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Delaware County (Pa.) Daily Times. He graduated from Temple University.
