NPR covers the Wolfowitz sleazy favors at the World Bank. Amazingly, they offer nothing of Wolf's criminal responsibilities for the war in Iraq and the rampant corruption and favoritism in that project of "this new American century." Would it be so hard to offer just a little background for this unindicted war criminal, such as that offered by the BBC when Wolf first came to the World Bank. Other than contributing to the US of Amnesia, the story does a pretty good job of explaining the current controversy.

Paul is difficult to comment on. Always has been. He is so extreme in all his actions and characteristics, it is inconceivable that he has gotten as far as he has, except by means within the environment of a degraded democracy. If this current tinker-toy scandal (his girl friend's salary shenanigans) brings him down at the World Bank, well, fine and dandy. But it is the legacy of his war criminal offenses by which he must stand, and it is only a vain hope that he will ever be brought to justice, instead of being treated with namby-pamby courtesy by people and institutions who should know better.

Here's the URL of a recent 'New Yorker' article (which I cannot comment on, cuz I haven't read it yet), on my good buddy Paul:
