Kudos to Fred Ikle for his contributions to national security and to Ronald Reagan for recognizing and absorbing the intelligence and common sense of his undersecretary for defense policy from 1981 to 1987.

A Google search turned up a column of his from 2009 entitled "Kill the Pirates" (about how to deal with the Somail pirates). Fittingly it appeared on April 13--Jefferson's birthday.

The German-language version of the Wikipedia article about him says he was married and had two daughters. The English-language version omits that. He was a cousin of a Swiss politician, Elisabeth Kopp.
