Recovering From Wolfgate

The New York Times is reporting that Bushliburton will move quickly to replace disgraced World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz:

WASHINGTON, May 18 — The Bush administration promised today to find someone quickly to succeed Paul D. Wolfowitz as president of the World Bank, and bring management skills to the job of healing an institution battered by the turmoil over Mr. Wolfowitz’s tenure.

“We want to make sure that we are selecting the best individual for the job,” said Tony Fratto, a White House spokesman. “We want someone who has a real passion for lifting people out of poverty. The magnitude of the challenge in that effort at the World Bank, and what we do on a bilateral basis, is just enormous.”

It is admirable that Bushliburton now states that they want to bring someone with management skills to this job, too bad they did not think of that when Wolfowitz was first appointed, as they should have known better, based on his previous reputation over at the Defense department.

One can only hope that Bushliburton would learn and apply some of these lessons at a little faster pace, so that maybe at least they could correct more of their foolish errors in judgement before their term runs out in the next 19 months.

    Wolfowitz, true to fashion, clung to this position as long as he could to negotiate the best terms for leaving (namely, some recognition of his accomplishments at the World Bank.) Of course, we all know he was kicked out with a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure.

    History will not look kindly upon this war mongerer. He even couldn’t handle this job, which was a sop handed to him by a thankful crony.
