By on 12.13.10 | 9:18PM

Richard Holbrooke, the Obama Administration's special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, has died. Holbooke served in every Democratic administration since Kennedy's, most notably as architect of the Dayton Accords which ended the Bosnian War during the Clinton years. Last year George Packer wrote a long profile of Holbrooke for the New Yorker, which gives a good picture of the man and the problems he was wrestling with in the AfPak theater. RIP.
