Timeline of Annie Jacobsen


Jacobsen’s 2014 book, Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program That Brought Nazi Scientists to America was called “perhaps the most comprehensive, up-to-date narrative available to the general public” in a review by Jay Watkins of the CIA’s Center for the Study of Intelligence. Operation Paperclip was included in a list of the best books of 2014 by The Boston Globe. Space historian Michael J. Neufeld gave a negative review of the book: “I cannot endorse Operation Paperclip because: it is error-ridden, it produces no fundamentally new information, it is unbalanced, and its notes are poor.” Jacobsen contributed to the October 24, 2019 Throughline Podcast The Dark Side of the Moon podcast episode.

In May 2019, she released her newest book Surprise, Kill, Vanish: The Secret History of CIA Paramilitary Armies, Operators, and Assassins. Apple audiobooks recorded SKV as one of the most popular audiobooks of 2019. The CIA reviewed SKV saying, “Jacobsen has a well-deserved reputation as a good writer and an excellent researcher.”


Her next book was published in March 2017: Phenomena: The Secret History of the U.S. Government’s Investigations into Extrasensory Perception and Psychokinesis.

In 2017, Amblin Entertainment and Blumhouse TV bought the rights to her book Phenomena for a scripted TV series, with Jacobsen and X-Files writer/producer Glen Morgan co-writing the pilot script.


The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top Secret Military Research Agency, was chosen as finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in history. The Pulitzer committee described the book as “A brilliantly researched account of a small but powerful secret government agency whose military research profoundly affects world affairs.” The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and the Amazon Editors chose Pentagon’s Brain as one of the best non-fiction books of 2015.


Her 2011 book, Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base, addresses the Roswell UFO incident. The Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Richard Rhodes, reviewing the book in The Washington Post, called the book “error-ridden,” pointing out that she relies on a single source for her claim that that in the 1940s Soviet leader Joseph Stalin sent a Nazi-designed flying disc filled with 13-year-olds with surgically enlarged heads into the United States to scare Americans as part of a black propaganda hoax modeled after The War of the Worlds. He concluded that “Jacobsen shows herself at a minimum extraordinarily gullible or journalistically incompetent.” Jacobsen’s book, Area 51, was on The New York Times Best Seller list for thirteen weeks and has been translated into six languages. Area 51 is being developed into an AMC Series with Gale Anne Hurd as executive producer.


In 2004, Jacobsen wrote an article about an incident she witnessed with a group of thirteen foreign nationals on board a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles. Two air marshals came out of cover during flight. FBI and homeland security agents met the aircraft when it landed. In May 2007, the Department of Homeland Security declassified a report about the flight. The men were identified as twelve Syrians, members of a musical group, and a Lebanese, their promoter; all were traveling illegally on expired visas. Eight of the men had “positive hits” for past criminal records and suspicious behavior. They were involved in an earlier incident on an aircraft which had them on the FBI watch list. However, the report noted that the musicians were not terrorists and law enforcement assessments at the time were appropriate.


Annie Jacobsen (born June 28, 1967) is an American investigative journalist, author, and a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist. She was a contributing editor to the Los Angeles Times Magazine from 2009 until 2012. Jacobsen writes about war, weapons, security, and secrets. Jacobsen is best known as the author of the 2011 non-fiction book, Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military Base, which The New York Times called “cauldron-stirring.” She is an internationally acclaimed and sometimes controversial author who, according to one critic, writes sensational books by addressing popular conspiracies.
