He has covered the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Ukraine, the earthquake in Haiti, the revolution in Egypt, and the revolution and civil war in Libya. He covered Southeast Asia from New Delhi in 2010-11, before taking over NPR’s Moscow bureau in 2012. Flintoff retired from NPR in September of 2016, and is now at work on several writing projects.
