Richard Holbrooke died yesterday, and much is being written about him. (See for instance this short remembrance by New Yorker writer George Packer.) Of special note are what his family members say were his final words (quoted, for instance, in the close of this Washington Post piece), spoken to his surgeon as he was sedated for surgery:

You’ve got to stop this war in Afghanistan.

I hope President Obama is listening.
