The man who was responsible for bringing peace to Bosnia with the Dayton Peace Accords in 1995 has died. Richard Holbrooke passed away on Monday due to complications from surgery to repair a torn aorta. He was 69.

Recently, Holbrooke was most recently involved in Afghanistan and Pakistan, addressing the insurgencies in both countries. He was so engrossed in that position that his last words were, ""You've got to stop this war in Afghanistan".
