Wolfowitz on shortlist for World Bank top post (Andrew Balls and Edward Alden, March 1 2005, Financial Times)

Paul WolfowitzPaul Wolfowitz, US deputy secretary of defence, has emerged as a leading candidate to replace James Wolfensohn as the president of the World Bank.

Mr Wolfowitz is one of a small number of people being considered for the US nomination, administration insiders said.

The nomination of Mr Wolfowitz, one of the chief architects of the Iraq war and a former US ambassador to Indonesia, would likely be highly controversial, and could raise new questions about the process by which the World Bank chief is selected. One administration official said his nomination “would have enormous repercussions within the development community”.


It's worth it just get the Left and far Right raving about a Jewish banker.
