    US diplomat Richard Holbrooke dies

    US diplomat Richard Holbrooke dies

    Richard Holbrooke, a brilliant and feisty U.S. diplomat who wrote part of the Pentagon Papers, was the architect of the 1995 Bosnia peace plan and served as President Barack Obama's special envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, died Monday, an administration official said. He was 69.

    The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the family had yet to make a formal announcement of Holbrooke's death.
    This man did great things for his nation, and should be remembered as a hero, IMO.

    Sudden death is always a shock. He will be missed.
