who will be next World Bank President What will they do


If they f*** with me, I'll f*** with them too [update with pic] In the documents that came out last night, some startling revelations into how Wolfowitz's mind works. When Xavier Coll advised him that the ethics committee may not look kindly on him giving Riza a raise just as she was leaving, Wolfowitz reportedly said:

As Richard Adams tells it amusingly in the Guardian newsblog today:

Sounding more like a cast member of the Sopranos than an international leader, in testimony by one key witness Mr Wolfowitz declares: "If they fuck with me or Shaha, I have enough on them to fuck them too."

Charming, isn't he?

Adams digs out several other juicy titbits from the Board committee report, including the immortal line: "the interpretation given by Mr Wolfowitz ... simply turns logic on its head".
