Deborah Horan Deborah Horan
Journalist specializing in Middle Eastern issues
My Observations on Israel and the Middle East

Tuesday, February 18, 2014
7 p.m. – Spellmann Center
Anheuser-Busch Leadership Room

Deborah moved to Jerusalem in 1993, three months before the historic but ill-fated Oslo peace agreement was signed between Israelis and Palestinians. She covered peace efforts, politics, and Israeli and Palestinian society for the next eight years, first as a freelance journalist, then as a reporter for the Houston Chronicle.

While based in Jerusalem, she traveled to surrounding countries, writing social stories from Egypt, political stories from Lebanon, and reporting on the deaths of Syrian president Hafez el-Assad from Damascus and Moroccan King Hassan II from Rabat. In 1999, she reported twice from Baghdad, covering the effects of UN-imposed economic sanctions during the Saddam Hussein era. In 2000, she traveled to Iran for three weeks, writing about the hope for change –and the changes then taking place– under then-President Mohammad Khatami.

In 2002, Deborah joined the Chicago Tribune, reporting on the Muslim immigrant community in Chicago and across the nation, and twice reporting from Iraq, in 2003 and 2004. She covered oil smuggling in Basrah, Kurdish victims of Saddam Hussein’s mustard gas attack, claims of responsibility for attempting to assassinate Oday Hussein by an obscure political group, the Iraqi symphony, and a 2004 cease-fire between U.S. troops and militias in Fallujah.

In 2008, Deborah joined the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, writing about U.S. efforts to rebuild the country. She is currently freelancing for the Washington Spectator.
