Søren Gade Jensen (born 27 January 1963) is a Danish politician who served as Defence Minister representing the Liberal party, Venstre from 2004 to 2010, when he replaced Svend Aage Jensby. He has been a Liberal member of the Danish Parliament since 2001. Before entering politics, he was a military officer and businessman. In January 2008 he lost his wife after years of cancer.
Gade resigned his position due to a long time conflict with the media after the publishing of an Arabic text, telling the defence's methods in the Afghan war.
