Yeah, listen to what the dissidents say.
IF anyone bothered to read Wolfowitz’s version of events, it would make things a LOT clearer.
The World Bank insiders never wanted him. Wolfowitz tried to be upfront on everything to begin with. Wolfowitz make the mistake of doing what the Ethics Panel told him to do at the beginning of this fiasco.
This is a pure political hatchet job.
Why would wolfowitz’s version of events be more credible? He’s the one who’s on the hot seat, he should be listened to as any guy in the dock should be, but he obviously has a strong interest in keeping his job and therefore might have a reason to slant the facts to ensure that he keeps it. That he got a plum job in the bush administration doesn’t make him a paragon of virtue. He had a lot of problems in the pentagon always thinking he was right and dismissing the concerns of generals. I think he’s misplaced in his current job.
