They're Still On Wolfie Hard

The disaffected folks at the World bank are still leaning on Paul Wolfowitz.

LONDON (Reuters) – A group of top former World Bank executives has urged Paul Wolfowitz to resign, as the bank’s watchdog warned his actions were undermining the ability of the institution to carry out development work.

The 42 senior executives wrote a letter to the Financial Times, published on Monday, advising Wolfowitz to give up the presidency for the good of the bank following a controversy over the promotion of his girlfriend.

It’s worth noting again that everythign Wolfowitz did was either fully recommended by the Bank’s own ethics commission or demanded by that same commission. If the senior executives have any complaints about how the young lady in question, who also happens to be a leading crusader for women’s rights around the world, was treated, they need to take it up with their own ethics people, now Wolfowitz.

It’s interesting how another article has managed to come out that forgets to mention that Wolfowitz did absolutely nothing wrong. I can’t help but notice that he’s getting this frame job foisted on him about the same time he’s really started to crack down on internal corruption and external dodgy loans to corrupt regimes.
