Richard Holbrooke’s Dying Wish

The 69-year-old diplomat, who served as ambassador to the United Nations in the Clinton administration, died Monday night in Washington in the wake of emergency surgery.

What did he tell the surgeon before he died?

Richard Holbrooke’s last words were “you’ve got to stop this war in Afghanistan,” The Washington Post’s Rajiv Chandrasekaran reports. That Holbrooke, special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, would say such a thing to his Pakistani doctor before undergoing 21 hours of surgery is puzzling to some, a warning to others. For starters: was Holbrooke talking about Pakistan stopping the war, or America stopping it?
