SECRETARY ALBRIGHT: I want to express my deep regret at the passing of former Secretary of State William P. Rogers. He served his country with distinction in a variety of positions, including Secretary of State, Attorney General, and as chairman of a special commission that investigated the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger. His contributions were many and he will be sorely missed. I extend my heartfelt sympathies to his wife Adele, his daughter Dale, and the entire Rogers family.
