Holbrooke dies days after aorta tear

Richard C. Holbrooke, the high-octane diplomat who spearheaded the end of the Bosnian war and most recently served as the Obama administration's point man in the volatile Afghan-Pakistani war zone, has died, officials said.

The 69-year-old diplomat died Monday at George Washington University Hospital. He was admitted last Friday after feeling ill. Doctors performed surgery Saturday to repair a tear in his aorta.

    Satan/atheists are loud and wrong as you can see by the conditions of this world. God rules and you will find that out before you leave this earth. Mr. Holbrooke, rest in peace.

    @Jim Brieske – wow you really seem like a man who lives by biblical principles. What a hypocrite you are. A man of 'faith' who curses and threatens people on the Internet for not sharing his ideology. You wouldn't be a member of Westboro – would you?
