RIP Richard Holbrooke

Richard Holbrooke died this evening, literally from a broken heart.

What I remembered about him first, was an article he wrote two years ago to celebrate Israel's 60th. It appeared beneath his name in the Washington Post, and concluded with this line: 

"Truman's decision [to recognize Israel] although opposed by almost the entire foreign policy establishment, was the right one -- and despite complicated consequences that continue to this day, it is a decision all Americans should recognize and admire." >> Read the whole thing.
