Today in Washington, the diplomatic world remembers Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Richard Holbrooke. Holbrooke died on December 13th after suffering a torn aorta. He was 69. Since his death, Arnold Fields, the top auditor of reconstruction funds in Afghanistan, has resigned. Before doing so, he fired two of his top deputies. Are we facing a leadership vacuum in Afghanistan?
Here to talk with us about the role of the diplomat is Peter Galbraith, former United Nations Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan.
