Alexander Haig, Rest in Peace
The Haig family says he died Saturday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore from complications associated with an infection. He was 85.
Haig’s long and decorated military service launched the Washington career for which he became better known. But he never lived down his televised response to the 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.
It had just been earlier reported that former Secretary of State Alexander Haig was admitted to a hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Reports state that that Haig is critically ill in the hospital with an undisclosed illness.
