who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Could we know by COB? Sources inside the Bank say that the ad hoc committee met last night at 5 pm, and will meet again today. They have told Wolfowitz to appear before them. According to Bloomberg, they have rejected a request by Wolfowitz's lawyer, Robert Bennett, to make a presentation.

"This is outrageous conduct on the part of this institution," Bennett said in an interview last night. "It's grossly unfair to Mr. Wolfowitz. To the world, it gives the appearance that he is being railroaded." Or maybe the world is thinking that it's the Bank that's been railroaded by Wolfowitz and his cronies? Whadya think?
