Atlantic Council Chairman Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. writes for Politico Magazine on the passing of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew:
The statesman and nation-builder Lee Kuan Yew died this week. I had the great privilege of getting to know him during my time as ambassador to Singapore 25 years ago. Since that time, I consulted him regularly across my service as Governor of Utah, trade ambassador, and as ambassador to China. Along with generations of other American policy-makers, I always benefited from his keen insight—insight which the world has now lost.
