In 1998 she moved to the Financial Times and The Economist reporting on the Caucasus and Central Asia from Baku, Azerbaijan. From 1999 to 2001 Gall worked in the Balkans for the New York Times, covering the wars in Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia and developments in Bosnia and the rest of the former Yugoslavia.

Publication and documentary

In 2014 in her book The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014 she accused the ISI, Pakistan's clandestine intelligence service, of hiding and protecting Osama bin Laden and his family after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Gall is featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary Taxi to the Dark Side (2007). She was the first journalist to report the story of two Afghans who died in US custody at Bagram air base (Parwan Detention Facility). The case of an Afghan taxi driver beaten to death in 2002 while in US-military custody forms the heart of the documentaries examination of the abuses committed during the detainment and interrogation of political prisoners. Gall investigated the death of cab driver Dilawar, officially declared by the military to be from natural causes, but uncovered incontrovertible evidence to the contrary.
