President Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton and many others gathered at Washington’s Kennedy Center pay pay tribute to Richard Holbrooke at Memorial. Hmm, did they sell t-shirts at this memorial as well like the one earlier in the week that Obama attended in Tucson, AZ following the Jared Loughner shootings?
World leaders gathered at Washington’s Kennedy Center Friday to honor the legacy of Richard Holbrooke, a legendary figure in the world of foreign policy and a forceful diplomat who brokered peace in Vietnam and Bosnia.
Among those attending the ceremony were President Obama, President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton.
Holbrooke had been serving as the Obama administration’s Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan when he suddenly took ill last month after a meeting at the White House. He died several days later.
