Hillary Praises Haig for His Contributions

Saturday, 20 Feb 2010 11:16 AM

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is praising one of her predecessors, Alexander Haig, who died on Saturday.

She says Haig earned honor on the battlefield and won the confidence of presidents and prime ministers. Clinton says Haig also earned "the thanks of a grateful nation."

Haig was secretary of state under President Ronald Reagan, and was a four-star general who served as a top adviser to three presidents.

Haig's family says he died in a Baltimore hospital at age 85 of complications from an infection.
