From the time ISIS rose to become the most infamous terrorist organization on Earth, no reporter has done more to explain and expose the group thanThe New York Times’ Rukmini Callimachi. She has covered everything from ISIS’s “theology of rape” to its alarmingly large presence in Europe. Before taking on her current beat, the Romanian-born Callimachi wrote about Hurricane Katrina and al-Qaida’s role in Africa for the Associated Press, as well as South Asia for Time. When we spoke by phone recently, Callimachi was in France, where she had just finished a story on the difficulties, for law enforcement, of dealing with people who might become terrorists but have not yet committed major crimes. Since that time, she has written about the attacks in Turkey and Bangladesh.
