Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke collapsed today during a meeting in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's office, officials said.
According to Democratic sources, Ambassador Holbrooke, Secretary Clinton's top aide for the region, gasped and was clearly undergoing a medical situation when he collapsed. He is said to have walked out of her office on his own power and was tended to by medical personnel at the State Department before being transported to George Washington University Hospital where to be treated for a blood clot.
State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley refused to confirm Ambassador Holbrooke's condition, but confirmed that he is in the hospital.

Was he watching Clinton kick Obamas ass at the presser
Not that I wish him ill ... but I hope he doesn’t return to duty and makes a long recovery in serenity far from any policy makers ...
One hopes he will enjoy a lllllllong recuperation, far away from any public office.
Actually, he was watching Hillary modeling various swimwear suits for her summer vacation.
That’d make anyone collapse:)
well thanks a lot! there goes my mood!
Was he doing her in the boo boo ?
Was there a Russian skulking around at the time?
Get well soon sir.
The wikileaks came from someone in the State Dept.
Makes you think when a Toon is near.
Falling down on the job.
Thanks. thanks alot.
I guess we can scratch cottage cheese off the dinner menu for tonight.
As a foreign policy expert, this guy has made an incredible mess of everything he touches. I wish him a long and happy retirement.
He single-handedly caused the deaths of thousands in the Balkans.
I hope he recovers but does not return to duty.
His situation sounds as if he may have had a heart attack, but his career shows that to be impossible since to have a heart attack requires one to have a heart.
His situation sounds as if he may have had a cerebral vascular incident, but his career shows taht to be impossible since to have a cerebral vascular incident requires one to have a brain.
Perhaps working for Hillary Medusa CKKKlintooon is taking its toll.
I agree with the majority of the comments already posted.
La Grande Hillary surely will be pleased if Holbrooke is forced into retirement. It’s no secret that this guy is both a “bull in the china shop” and a bully — as well as a rival to Mme Clinton and her Foggy Bottom bureaucracy.
i’m surprised. i thought he only gave people
