Why is Wolfie so determined to stay where he's not wanted?

judgment day's a comin'...

from the world bank special committee report...

  • Mr. Wolfowitz broke bank rules and the ethical obligations in his contract
  • [H]e tried to hide the salary and promotion package awarded to Shaha Ali Riza
  • [H]e “cast himself in opposition to the established rules of the institution”
  • Mr. Wolfowitz saw himself as the outsider to whom the established rules and standards did not apply
  • It evidences questionable judgment and a preoccupation with self-interest over institutional best interest
  • Mr. Wolfowitz has taken the position that there were no rules that applied to the situation and therefore no rules could have been broken in resolving the matters as he did
henry paulson...
  • [T]hese facts do not rise to the level of warranting dismissal
dick cheney...
  • [O]ne of the most able public servants I’ve ever known
  • [H]e’s a very good president of the World Bank, and I hope he will be able to continue
maybe dick can find a place for him on his staff...
