David Ignatius and David Sanger are a powerhouse pair from the nation’s two newspapers of record. Ignatius, a Washington Post foreign affairs columnist and David Sanger, national security correspondent for the New York Times, represent a wealth of expertise in foreign and current affairs and insights on breaking news and hotspots across the globe. They will join us to answer your questions and talk about both fact and fiction as Ignatius’ eleventh spy novel debuts this month. 

David Ignatius began writing fiction after he narrowly missed - by 30 minutes - the 1983 bombing of the American Embassy in Beirut. He says, "That's when I became a novelist. It was obvious the only way I could share this world of fact was through fiction. Otherwise, the story was impossible to write: it was too raw, and at that time genuinely dangerous. "Since 1987, Ignatius has published ten best-selling spy novels. In his eleventh, “The Paladin,” a disavowed CIA disinformation and cyber fake expert seeks revenge on those who forced him to take the fall for an illegal operation. 

In his 36-year reporting career for The Times, national security correspondent David Sanger has been part of three teams that have won Pulitzer Prizes. His 2018 book, “The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage and Fear in the Cyber Age,’’ examined how large and small states are using cyberconflict to change the nature of global power.
