Were Richard Holbrooke's last words really, "You've got to stop this war in Afghanistan"?
Brent talks to The Washington Post's Rajiv Chandrasekaran about the obit he wrote - and speculation that the legendary diplomat's last words were in opposition to the war.
After the obit appeared, headlines started to appear in places like CBS News reading: "Holbrooke's Last Words: You've Got To Stop This War In Afghanistan" - and the quote spread like wildfire on blogs and Twitter.
When it turned out there was another dimension to the story - as The State Dept. took great pains to point out - The Washington Post and others posted updates clarifying the story, as the quote continued to spread.
