Explaining Wolfowitz Nominated For World Bank President
Like the Czar over Potemkin, Dear Leader does not know what is going on. His filter is the close group of people around him, foremost among them Rove, Rumsfeld, Rice and Cheney. As a side note, I just recently finished R Suskind's "The Price of Loyalty," which does nothing but confirm this view of Bush as ill-informed.
At this moment, and no one knows for how much longer, the Iraq Attack seems to have been mutated from a Depose-Saddam/Avenge-My-Father/Lots-of-Corporate-And-Defense-Contracts/No More WMDs For the NMEs plan into a "Let's Bully The World Into Democracy" plan, and, for the last week, it seems to be working.
If it does work (and so far I give it a 0% chance, but that could rise), who is to be rewarded except its architects, foremost among them P Wolfowitz?
Credentials be damned, even if P Wolfowitz has never managed a retail shoe store, managing the funding arm of the US foreign policy establishment will be trivial.
