Our world is a lesser place today after losing Lieutenant General (retired) Brent Scowcroft. I believe historians will characterize General Scowcroft as one of the greatest national security strategists in American history. And I know that anyone who knew him would also characterize him as one of the greatest gentlemen they ever met. Rest in peace, Sir; please say hi to “41” for us. The Bush School will ensure our nation never forgets either one of you.
