Adam Garfinkle is the editor of The American Interest, a bimonthly public policy magazine, a blogger (The Middle East and Beyond), and a member of FPRI’s Board of Advisors.  A former speechwriter for Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, Garfinkle was a Senior Fellow at FPRI, a staff member of the Hart-Rudman Commission (Commission on National Security/21st Century), and has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins University.

Each month, Geopolitics with Granieri, Director of FPRI’s Center for the Study of America and the West, features a conversation—some might say an interrogation—with guest scholars on subjects in the news, and includes substantial audience participation. The program runs on the second Tuesday of every month.
