Wolfie padded the tab for his babe, period. In real life ordinary people can’t get away with that kind of stuff. But, there, in that rareified atmosphere, the Wolfies actually think they can fight to justify it. And, also, think that the rest of us can’t see the forest for the trees.

I wonder if the woman in question will be going back to the World Bank after the dust settles. She did not want to leave in the first place. It appears that the enemies of Wolfie and Shaha, those crazy lovebird kids, won this battle of political in-fighting.

You know, I don't see anything SO terrible about all this. However, the dog ate my moral compasss.

You've been spund. That's not what the evidence shows; period, semicolon, comma or ampersand.

The facts are that Shaha was short listed for a promotion within the bank. The ethics committee told Wolfowitz she could not remain with the bank, and that he (Wolfowitz) should facilitate her transfer out of the bank. Her salary increase at State was in line with what she would have received anyway from her impending promotion at the World Bank.

Any employee with a record of excellence, involuntarily forced out over a conflict of interest, would -- quite rightfully -- expect a competent agent (and remember it was at the ethics committee's insistence that Wolfowitz acted as the agent) to secure them a deal that resulted in no net lose of expected compensation.

In short, when ALL the facts are considered, Shaha did NOT get special treatment. Period.
