Someone who can steer billions in loans to US supporters to the WoT, of course.
He may actually think that he could clean up that corrupted mess that is the World Bank - but as we have discussed previously on FR there are so many alternatives: John Bolton, Donald Rumsfeld, and why not send Wolfowitz to the UN? Anything to see the moonbats’ heads explode.....
If the Washington Post is not lying, I think its the end for Wolfowitz. They could of course be lying, since its an even or an odd numbered day...
>>White House Shifts on Wolfowitz
Bush administration signals willingness to replace World Bank president if he is not fired from post.<<
Wolfie screwed up. When you go into a hostile situation as a troubleshooter where you are blamed for the Iraq war which has less than 5% support in Europe you have to be extremely careful because you know they are looking for an excuse.
The World bank doesn’t want his reform, as they tolerate the current level of corruption. They don’t want his management style and they want to pay back the U.S. for invading Iraq after the U.N. turned down our request for a resolution of support.
So when Wolfie got involved in the compensation of someone he was sleeping with, it was a technical error. And that’s enough when the board already wants to fire the CEO.
