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.
