who will be next World Bank President What will they do


What Happened to Wolfowitz the Strategist? Is the question that Steve Clemons is asking today on The Washington Note, his blogspot.

Paul Wolfowitz has all but conceded that he is leaving his perch as CEO of the World Bank. The only question that remains is what gets scribbled in the last paragraph of the story on whether the "blame" for his departure is shared -- and whether he resigned under his own steam or was actually, formally fired.

What is odd about this entire encounter is that "Wolfowitz the strategist" seems to be missing -- and that may have been the problem all along.

I guess he was/is a follower of Sun Tzu whenever there was/is a need to impose the US ' definition of Democracy in the rest of the world (ROW) BUT he never expected to land in an institution for International economic development where his boss is not the US Administration but representatives of shareholders from nations from that R.O.W.
