“Far from respecting the bank, member governments and staff charged, Wolfowitz surrounded himself with doctrinaire former White House and Republican officials and gave them wide authority. He altered long-standing policies and imposed new ones without consulting the staff or member governments. He risked the bank’s credibility and the future of the poor countries it serves.”

It not’s the anti-semitism, it’s the incompetence.

Put away your racial insults, and stop trying to cloud the issue.

(If there was anti-semitism, how could a Jew have been appointed to the World Bank in the first place?? Duh.)

No thanks.

Wolfowitz’s appointment was a requirement of US european agreements on the management of the bank.

They had to accept a US presidential appointment to the position. It was always a matter of time until they removed him for bogus corruption charges.

This is a clear anti semitic reference. The fact that Cohen’s video so easily references it in an international context is a fascinating insight into how anti semitism is expunged from American media to make Islamic radicalism more palatable.

I guess the incompetence was the removal of a conflict of interest by taking his girlfriend out of the world bank.

A good world bank employee would have kept their girlfriend on staff and increased her pay.

Thanks for pointing that out.
