Paul Wolfowitz Caught With Pants Down

Well not exactly. But nonetheless he has once again proved that he is an unethical liar. He has helped his girlfriend Shaha Ali Riza obtain a job at the State Department that pays her more than Condoleeza Rice. Now in and of itself this may mean nothing as it seems that Ms. Rice is obviously not being overworked.

Wolfowitz is the president of the World Bank and was the Director of Policy Planning at the Dept. of Defense that helped frame and manipulate the justifications for war with Iraq. He is also the architect of the foreign policy of the Bush Administration known as the Bush Doctrine.

He is in a bad way ethically and may be Imussed.

"I made a mistake, for which I am sorry," said the controversial Wolfowitz, a former deputy Secretary of Defense who was one of the main architect's of the current war in Iraq. "In hindsight, I wish I had trusted my original instincts and kept myself out of the negotiations."

That should take care of it, right?

His apology was apparently not enough for the World Bank Group Staff Association, which issued a statement saying Wolfowitz "must acknowledge that his conduct has compromised the integrity and effectiveness of the World Bank Group and has destroyed the staff's trust in his leadership. He must act honorably and resign."

The problems started as soon as Mr. Wolfowitz took the helm at the World Bank as he gave his honey a $47,300 raise which worked out to a 35 percent increase!

Once the relationship between Wolfowitz and Riza, who are both divorced, was made public in September 2005, Riza was assigned to work at the State Department, though she continued to draw a salary from the World Bank.
In 2006 Riza received a $13,590 (7.5 percent) raise (to $193,590). According to GAP, World Bank staff rules would cap her raise percentage increases at 12 percent and 3.7 percent. Riza's current salary, $193,590, is approximately $7,000 more than what Rice earns.

Since he took the helm of the World Bank in 2005, after putting together a great plan for Iraq and "Mission Accomplished", he made it a top priority to end corruption in third world countries.

This man is as corrupt as any third world country and they shouldn't wait for him to resign, he should be fired.

He wouldn't be out of work for long, King George would love to have "Wolfie" back. After all, they are two of a kind.
