Wolfowitz Remains Defiant Despite World Bank Scandal

What is about the neocons that makes them so arrogant. Wolfowitz, the architect of the Iraq war, obviously is following the example of his former boss, George Bush. If he could get the most powerful nation on earth to illegally, and under false pretenses to invade a country, why not take over the World Bank. But like the Iraq war, he's failed:
World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz remained defiant on Sunday as finance and development ministers from around the world expressed “great concern” over the turmoil at the bank.

In an unprecedented statement, ministers representing all the bank’s member governments, including the US, said “we have to ensure that the bank can effectively carry out its mandate and maintain its credibility and reputation as well as motivation of staff”.

Sounds a lot like the Gonzales mess:
Staff are in open revolt over revelations that Mr Wolfowitz was personally involved in securing an attractive secondment deal for Shaha Riza, a bank official with whom he was romantically involved.
