Charlie Wilson Died

The London Times informs their readers that Charlie Wilson died.

"Charlie Wilson, US politician who secretly funded CIA in Afghanistan, dies"

The article begins: "Charlie Wilson, the Texan Democrat who championed covert CIA support for Afghan Mujahidin in the 1980s and whose life was chronicled in a Hollywood film, has died. He was 76." Read more at
There was something in the Lufkin Congressman Wilson of David Burnet who fought in Venezuela for the freedom of Latin America in 1807; something of Bangs and McLaren who hired on as printers for Francisco Mina to free Mexico; something of the brash Sam Houston.  Charlie Wilson has died, and as he would say, "Let's party!"
Or see the movie or read the volume Charlie Wilson's War.
