Gabriel Schoenfeld is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C.. From 2011 through December 2012, he was a Senior Adviser to the Mitt Romney for President campaign.[1]

Biography[edit]

From 1994 to 2008 he was senior editor of Commentary. His articles appear frequently in Commentary and a wide variety of other publications, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, The New Republic, The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, and The Atlantic. A United States Chess Federation master, he was a chess columnist for The New York Sun until the newspaper closed. Schoenfeld has appeared as a commentator on numerous television shows, including on CNN, CBS, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, NHK, and CBC. His first book, The Return of Anti-Semitism, was published by Encounter Books in 2004. W.W. Norton published his second book, Necessary Secrets: National Security, the Media, and the Rule of Law, in May 2010.[2] His third book, A Bad Day on the Romney Campaign: An Insider's Account was published by Penguin in May 2013.

In the March 2006 issue of Commentary, Schoenfeld called for the government to prosecute a number of reporters and editors at The New York Times under the espionage statutes after it broke the story of the National Security Agency's warrantless surveillance of people within the United States.[3] In June of that year he testified before Congress on the responsibilities of the press in wartime.[4]

Schoenfeld earned a Ph.D. from Harvard University's Department of Government in 1989; his dissertation was titled "Uses of the Past: Bolshevism and the French Revolutionary Tradition."
