Claudia Rosett

Claudia Rosett is an American investigative journalist and editor. For more than three decades, she has reported from Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union. She earned an Overseas Press Club Citation for Excellence for her on-the-ground coverage of the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989. In 1994, she broke the story of the existence of North Korean labor camps in the Russian Far East. In 2002, Rosett exposed the United Nations Oil-for-Food scandal, the largest financial fraud in the history of humanitarian relief. She has appeared before the U.S. Congress to testify on United Nations-related corruption. Her reporting on the issue earned Rosett the 2005 Eric Breindel Award and the Mightier Pen Award. In 2017, she published an Encounter Broadside book called, “What to do about the U.N.” Rosett remains a well respected journalist and frequently writes and makes public appearances about U.S. relations with the world’s dictators. She is fierce critic of United States support of the U.N. writing, “It is way past time for the UN (and Washington itself) to stop treating U.S. tax dollars as a multi-billion-dollar annual entitlement for the bigots and thug governments …” (PJ Media, 2017). She is a foreign policy fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum.
