who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Wolfowitz background exposed. For those who think that the announcements by Bush and Wolfowitz on Wednesday may have glossed over some of the more interesting aspects of his track record, help is at hand. We can recommend articles in the Village Voice, the Asia Times, the East Timor Action Network, and Indonesia Alert.

Village Voice is probably the best of the bunch, as it contrasts the main claims for Wolfowitz to get the job with acerbic and up to date commentary on his performance at the Pentagon and State Department. One illustrative extract is: "the Government Accountability Office (Congress's investigative arm) released a report on how effectively and efficiently the Pentagon's "transformation" of the armed services—an effort running to the hundreds of billions of dollars—has been going. The report pointedly noted an 'absence of clear leadership and accountability'".
