Remembering Richard Holbrooke

Hosted by

Results of the ongoing White House review of strategy in Afghanistan will be announced Thursday, but today's meeting took place without an important advisor. Richard Holbrooke, special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, died yesterday of complications from a ruptured aorta. Holbrooke wanted to be a journalist, but spent most of his life as a diplomat, serving every Democratic President since John F. Kennedy. "Without him, there's less zest in the world," says his friend, George Packer of the New Yorker.
