Wolfowitz did not hire Shaha Riza (she was a valued employee at the World Bank prior to his becoming Prez), nor did he direct her promotion. Before signing his own employment contract he voluntarily and in writing recused himself from any matters pertaining to her position in the Bank, a recusal that was acknowledged also in writing.
The bank’s board, through a convoluted process, determined that she be given a promotion and directed Wolfowitz to carry out the administrative procedures. Unfortunately, this required that his signature be the authorizing one, enabling his enemies to engineer his dismissal. The anti-Jew, anti-corruption fighter Europeans could not tolerate Wolfowitz any longer than it would take them to devise a scheme for eliminating him.
Thanks for the clarification....he shouldn’t have resigned. However, he would have spared himself this entire thing if his g/f had sought employment elsewhere....just sayin’
