The former National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter Zbigniew Brzezinski has died Friday at a hospital in northern Virginia.


His daughter, "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski announced the news late Friday and tweeted out family photos of her family.

Brzezinski was born in Poland and wielded "considerable influence over global affairs," The New York Times detailed in a biography of his life.

Brzezinski was outspoken in his opposition to the 2003 Iraqi invasion. A long-time Democrat he also was known to speak out against the "greed" in an American system he saw compound inequalities.
