Richard Holbrooke

Architect of the Bosnian Peace Accords in 1995, he is known as a superstar in the state department. He has represented the United States in all major conflicts of the last decade. Not an original member of Obama’s team, he was brought in by Secretary of State Clinton and worked exclusively in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Mr. Holbrooke passed away today at 69, before the conflict in that region has subsided.

Below is an excerpt from an interview he did with Charlie Rose from August 2008.
