FROM David Holbrooke
The Life and Legacy of Diplomat Richard Holbrooke After 50 years as an American diplomat, Richard Holbrooke is most famous for helping Bill Clinton end the bloody Bosnian War. Now his son has come to know his father better in death than he did in life by making a documentary that debuts November 2 on HBO . Richard Holbrook wrote his first autobiography at the age of 14. At the age of 69, he was making tapes for a follow-up when he suddenly died in the midst of an extraordinary career. He was serving as President Obama's Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan. David Holbrooke is the son of Richard Holbrooke and the festival director of Telluride Mountainfilm. He's also the director of The Diplomat .

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
