Some very exciting news:  I’m joining the BuzzFeed News investigative team in December as an investigative reporter.

I’ll miss my colleagues at Al Jazeera America dearly, and I’m so proud of the work we’ve done, but I’m thrilled about this opportunity!

The Obama Administration has gone to great lengths to protect the secrecy of America's targeted killing program, but I explore the one avenue that's proven surprisingly successful in forcing it to be more transparent about drones. http://alj.am/1n9qf2V
The confirmation process for Obama nominees has turned up some of the only disclosures about the U.S. drone program

Dwayne Provience spent 10 years in jail for a murder he didn't commit. Jessie Payne was run over by a Detroit city bus. Along with 500 other #ForgottenCreditors with suits against the city that cover everything from police abuse and wrongful incarceration to employment discrimination and unfair dismissal, they stand to become victims of the city of Detroit twice over.

My investigation into the invisible victims in Detroit's bankruptcy airs tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET on +Al Jazeera America's flagship show +America Tonight. I hope you'll watch.

Pakistan is so much more than the stories that make headlines here in America, so I've been working to bring together some badass journalists who've spent years in the country pursuing stories that often go underreported.

If you're in D.C. on Feb. 11th, join Declan Walsh, Habiba Nosheen and Sadia Shepard for a deep look at the challenges and realities of reporting in Pakistan, and stories you aren't hearing.

If you can't make it, you'll be able to watch on YouTube later. I'll be moderating, so submit your questions using the #ReportingPak hashtag and I'll do my best to work them in. Learn more & RSVP here: http://bit.ly/Mvzi0d

"Whatever we do, they will never look at us as human beings,... We end up with wounds they cannot see."

Last month a U.S. drone struck a wedding convoy in a remote part of central Yemen, killing 12. Iona Craig journeyed to the site of the strike for the first in-depth account of what happened, and it's a must-read. For America Tonight: http://alj.am/Krm9Uu

Close your eyes and imagine Palestinian life. What images come to mind?

I just loved this photo essay by Tanya Habjouqa, who was tired of the familiar tropes about the contemporary Palestinian experience. Instead, she decided to focus on the small pleasures, and the resulting photos are a beautiful, important window into a world we are rarely ever shown. Trust me and have a look. http://nyti.ms/1dR0509

So proud that "The Bombing of al-Bara," which I produced at +FRONTLINE, was just nominated for an Emmy in the "New Approaches to Documentaries."

It's a harrowing, rare and immersive digital short film that illustrates what it looks like when the Syrian government bombs its own people, through the voice and lens of Olly Lambert. A must-watch if you've yet to see it: http://to.pbs.org/ZxAMMC

My feature story from Brazil:

An estimated 5 million Brazilian women under the age of 40 have had at least one abortion. Because abortion is only allowed in certain circumstances, an overwhelming majority of these women terminate their pregnancies illegally — risking prison, serious health consequences, social stigma and even death. But in a desperate attempt to get a safe abortion, Juliana did something different: She falsely reported rape.

It should be legalized IMO. It's not due to politicians linked to religious organizations.

We always have our noses to the ground, but we also know that discovering some of the most important stories can mean leveraging every important tool.

That's why +America Tonight just launched #TrackingAssault, a campaign to get your help in finding more of the underreported stories surrounding sexual assault. All this month, we'll be going through your responses and sharing what we're learning, on air and online. Join us: http://alj.am/1hVUrbQ

Obsessed with this story we're doing (soon) about feminist street art in response to street harassment.
