A persistent question keeps popping up in world bank staff comments and discussions inside the bank. Should those closely associated with Wolfowitz and Shaha Riza also resign or be asked, gently or not, to leave.
There are, as you can imagine, a number of individuals who were brought on board by Wolfowitz and Ms. Riza. They in turn created their own inner circles of close allies and cronies. Some of these individuals were also recruited from inside the bank, but were given greater power and influence than they ever had before because they were close to Shaha Riza or were acquaintances of Wolfowitz or his friends.
Some among the staff are afraid that if these individuals stay in the bank, they can use their power in the future to quietly retaliate against those who took a stand against Wolfowitz.
What do you think?
