Wolfowitz corrupt as world banks

#2
Wolfowitz is the neocon creature of Bush and co, and a fool.

He wouldn't have jeopardised his career for c. £80k and a rather plain girlfriend if he were not the latter. And his position as the former is a matter of record.

£800 K surely? There is his package to consider as well. Considering his package of course, got him into this mess in the first place.

Badda-boom-tsssssh.


He is not a fool , just arrogant beyond words. How the hell he ever got into this position with his track record was commented on Arrse at the time.

It was c.£80k when I last looked, unless he's been up to worse. Which wouldn't surprise me.

He must be some sort of fool if he can't bury his graft in the byzantine records of the WB. Why not go down, if you must, for £80m - to which he'd have access?

And has anyone seen the plain skirt for whom he allegedly did it?

No taste either . . . . .

Disagree.

Neo-conservatism was an academic theory cooked up by 'mad' social-political scientists who rarely had the chance to get out into the real world. Bush was the ignorant buffoon foolish enough to give permission to let the theory out of the box.

Caubeen, I clarified my post while you were typing.


The US has the closing vote on his future of course. I'll be interested to see which way they go on this.

Wolfowitz will soon be forced to tender his resignation. By way of explanation for his departure he will no doubt say, "I wish to spend more time with my well licked my comb."

More than a passing resemblance to "Lord" Lloyd-Webber, in profile. Bag over head probably little better.

If you are WB supremo and Financial Captain of Everything, surely far better totty is available? 8)

If not, what is corruption for?

Really . . . . . .

To paraphrase an old saying of one of his mates, 'it's the money stupid' he wont resign as that would mean he was simply paid up to the date of his resignation. Also it will mean admitting wrong doing another no no, unless you get paid for doing so. He wants to be sacked because his executive contract will give him a couple of wheelbarrows full of nice cash if he is sacked, and he can also claim it was a political put up job anyway, so he has all the lovely cash and the Yanks he care about will all believe it was a put up job. He may also believe GWB will send in the Marines to save him anyway.

Such as one Professor Paul Wolfowitz, Dean of the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University from 1994-2001, perhaps? IIRC, his PhD dissertation (Yale, 1972) was on nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.

I agree on Wolfowitz being corrupt / corruptible, but don't forget how many African countries became corrupt and remained so. They found it terribly difficult to resist multimillion bribery by Western companies and governments.

It takes two to tango. Where do you think those African despots got their private jets from? Last time I checked, there weren't many African based companies that knew how to build such a beast.

If one compares salaries and overheads at The World Bank with lending by the Bank,on a percentage basis,it's clear that it's not only Wolfowitz taking the p@ss,but that the whole thing is a disgracefull gravy train.

The FT [LINK] has a story that the US State Dept has opened an investigation into possible security vetting and legal anomalies in connection with the "transfer" of Shaha Reza from the World Bank to the Middle East Dept at State.

Meanwhile, consider the fact that the Presidency of the World Bank is effectively in the gift of the US President, but need not necessarily go to a US citizen. If Mr Wolfowitz fails to survive in the post, might there not be a non-US candidate who will become available in the very near future?
