HONORED WORK: “My Neighbor the Suspected War Criminal”

This piece about the failure of U.S. Department of Justice officials to pursue accused international human rights violators inside the U.S. tells a riveting and surprising story in a highly accessible way. The scope is at once both human and global; it has compelling characters and a personal connection for the reporter, Ike Sriskandarajah. Among the highlights are interviews with federal officials who were asked whether the government had ever charged anyone with a war crime. Their stumbling response is a great example of journalists holding public officials to account.
