who will be next World Bank President What will they do


WB staff are NOT weenies According to Anne Williamson, stepping down will be a personal disaster for Paul Wolfowitz. Bush's power is spiralling south and there are no more cushy jobs available.

Clumsily, Wolfowitz has attempted what he and his neocon pals managed to do to the Pentagon and the CIA, but unlike those weenies, World Bank staff fought back, proving the old saw, "The price of privilege is eternal vigilance." In an uncharacteristically noisy string of special meetings, memos, reports, internet message boards, chat rooms, public hissing displays and press leaks, they refused to be intimidated while their institution is made a shell and re-designed from within. No "Office of Special Plans Under Construction" sign on their premises!
