I don’t think he was especially serious about corruptionfighting, it had already started when he came and it will continue as ever when he leaves. He did make a big deal of it in words, but his actions showed that corruption only applied to regimes he didn’t like - ergo, Uzbekistan was corrupt, Tajikistan wasn’t, oh give me a break! Also, he was big on lending to Iraq, transferring the ‘Africa Model’ for becoming a worldclass power to a place that already was a hellhole on its own. Iraq is the second-most corrupt place in the world according to Transparency International. He certainly didn’t care about corruption in a country that was his “baby,” Iraq. He was very loud about being a corruption fighter and very selective in declaring who he thought was corrupt. The other world bankers would comment on how he’d declare one ‘corrupt!’ and scrap the whole thing, without any investigation, and then let an obvious case go by. He just didn’t do his homework, which is why he was unpopular with the staff. He wanted to rule by fiat, like The Red Queen, and it caught up to him. No, he wasn’t very serious about corruption - and as far as himself, personally, that didn’t count at all, the great hog wallow was there for him to harvest from and he dined plentifully.
You call ‘em as you see ‘em!
