About Carol Rosenberg
Carol Rosenberg has been a staff writer with The Miami Herald for the past 20 years. She was hired as the Middle East correspondent on the eve of the first Gulf War – Her first staff byline was from Baghdad, Sept. 1, 1990 -- and spent four years there for The Herald covering terror, conflicts and culture as part of a seven-year stint in the region, time that set the stage for her now nearly 10-year stint focusing on Guantanamo. The Herald dispatched her to the Guantanamo Navy base in January 2002, on the eve of the arrival of the first 20 captives, in what evolved into an unrivaled commitment to cover the offshore experiment in detention in "The War on Terror," the place, the policy and the legal proceedings down there. When the Pentagon isn't putting her up in Tent City at Guantanamo's "Camp Justice," she lives in Miami Beach and shuttles to the Navy Base in southeast Cuba under military escort via Washington DC, on average once a month, and made her last trip to the Middle East for the 2006 Hezbollah war. Her dispatches can be found at www.miamiherald.com/guantanamo and, when court is in session and the Pentagon controlled web access is working, she tweets live from Guantanamo at twitter.com/Guantanamo.
