The Attempted Putsch at the World Bank
The American Thinker ^ | 5/15/05 | Clarice Feldman

Posted on 05/14/2007 11:29:49 PM PDT by the Real fifi

Late yesterday afternoon, without prior notice to Paul Wolfowitz, the World Bank's Executive Committee released the Final Report of the Ad Hoc Group on his handling of personnel issues affecting his companion Shaha Riza.

It is a highly damaging, utterly biased account of the events and the nature of the release-designed to give his detractors first crack at the news while handicapping him in his capacity to respond. Yet it is par for the course in a matter which has been characterized by false accusations, unfair treatment and selected manipulation of the press by those members of the Bank and the staff who oppose him. (See Christopher Hitchens' account of this sliming.)

I think by now, it's obvious what's going on here.

Wolfowitz surely knew he was stepping into a snake pit when he accepted his position there.

Hopefully, counter-strategies to just these kinds of power plays were already considered and lined up.

If not, he will lose and so will we.

I think President Bush should appoint Don Rumsfeld to replace Wolfowitz, if Wolfie is made to walk the plank.

Soros has made billions of dollars operating in the murky world of offshore hedge funds. He is famously the man who "broke the Bank of England" by wagering a huge amount of money that Britain would be forced to devalue the pound. Britain weakened its currency; George Soros enlarged his fortune. The offshore nature of his hedge fund has many benefits for Soros. It is exempt from many American security regulations and its investors are invisible to the public. There have been rumors that Arab oil wealth has found an outlet in Soros's funds, since he takes a percentage off the top based on the assets of the fund, and a reportedly substantial percentage of the profits (money which eventually can make its way, cleaned, to America). It is not too much of a stretch to wonder if Arab oil has fueled the rise of Soros.

Its all starting to become very clear. Soros and Islamic forces of anti-Christ teaming up to try and bring down the last Christian nation on earth. Is this the Beast and the False Prophet, or just a precursor? Stay tune, I think we are going to have an answer in the coming days.

How about refusing to hand over the billions in American taxes to line the pockets of Third World cronies?

There is also the hand of the EU in this, they would like nothing better than to see the World Bank fall into their hands and would stop and nothing to destroy Americas influence.

They and their ChiCom allies are enemies of freedom and our way of life.

I would have problem with that. But Rumsfeld might.

I’m for that and Don Rumsfeld. If not, Judge Robert Bork. Just because he can.

How’s about paying attention to what’s really going on and not falling for tabloid junk.
