Isikoff has been with Newsweek since 1994 and has written extensively on the U.S. government's war on terrorism, the Abu Ghraib scandal, campaign finance, congressional ethics, presidential politics and other national issues.
Isikoff is the author of "Uncovering Clinton: A Reporter's Story" and co-author, with David Corn, of "Hubris," about the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the scandal surrounding the exposure of CIA operative Valerie Plame.
Isikoff's online column with Mark Hosenball, "Terror Watch," won the 2005 award from the Society of Professional Journalists for best investigative reporting online. In 2001, Isikoff was part of the Newsweek team that won the Overseas Press Club's most prestigious honor, the Ed Cunningham Memorial Award, for best magazine reporting from abroad for the magazine's coverage of the war on terror.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
