Arnaud de Borchgrave

Arnaud de Borchgrave (1926 –) is an American journalist who specializes in international politics.

Born in Belgium to a Belgian count, Baudouin de Borchgrave d’Altena, who was head of Belgium's military intelligence for the government in exile, during World War II. Arnaud de Borchgrave was educated in Belgium, Britain and the United States. He served in the British Royal Navy from 1942 to 1946, at the age of 15, after running away from home and using falsified papers on his age to enlist in the service. He gave up his title of nobility in 1951. [cite news | title = The Foreign Correspondent | publisher = Washington Post | date = 1980-05-13]

In 1947, he was appointed Brussels bureau chief for United Press International, and three years later he became "Newsweek"'s bureau chief in Paris and then chief correspondent. In 1953 he became a senior editor for the magazine. The Editor-in-Chief of "Newsweek" once said that::"De Borchgrave has played a role in world affairs known to no other journalist. He has been able to tap the thinking of numerous world leaders... despite his intimacy with major policymakers, he has never aligned himself with either side of a dispute... Arnaud de Borchgrave has made significant contributions to world peace and understanding."

As a correspondent for "Newsweek", de Borchgrave secured numerous interviews with world leaders. In 1969 he interviewed both President Nasser of Egypt and Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol. In October 1972, during the Vietnam War, he was accorded his most famous interview, travelling to Hanoi to speak with North Vietnamese Prime Minister and Politburo member Pham Van Dong. In that interview, Dong described a provision of a proposed peace deal as a "coalition of transition," which raised fears with the South Vietnamese that the deal involved a coalition government, possibly playing a role in South Vietnam's rejection of the deal.

He was appointed editor in chief for "The Washington Times" on March 20, 1985. He is currently editor at large of "The Washington Times" and of United Press International and Transnational Threats Director for The Center for Strategic and International Studies [ [http://www.c-span.org/homepage.asp?Cat=Series&Code=WJE&ShowVidNum=9&Rot_Cat_CD=WJ&Rot_HT=206&Rot_WD=&ShowVidDays=100&ShowVidDesc=&ArchiveDays=30 C-SPAN] Washington Journal 11-6-2007] .
