Paul Wolfowitz’s move to head up the World Bank after it was becoming obvious that he was going to get caught up in the scandal of lies that were used to kick off the invasion, occupation and plundering of Iraq while he was Deputy Secretary of Defence was, so the Bush administration thought, the most appropriate reward for the services of one of the worlds most disgusting warmongers and liars.
For most people the World Bank is a quiet nondescript entity where Wolfowitz could safely hide away from any of the real limelight yet still maintain an influential role in the affairs of the world using his skills as a professionally trained and fully qualified Straussian liar.
Recently however, his skills at lying and manipulation have again caught him out and yet again thrust him into unwanted limelight that may well, hopefully, cost him his job.
The neocon comic, the ‘Wall Street Journal’, yesterday attempted to rescue their liar in chief by trying to make it seem as though Wolfowitz is the victim and, just to compound their deceit and dishonesty, they blamed European elements within the World Bank organisation for manipulating Wolfowitz’s potential demise from the World Bank’s Presidency in order that they can protect their own interests who the 'Wall Street Journal' infer are ‘corrupt’. What the ‘Wall Street Journal' didn’t mention was how these European elements managed to get Wolfowitz’s girlfriend, Shaha Riza, seconded to a virtually non-existent job in the US State Department where she would be working for the State Department sponsored Foundation for the Future at a salary of some $244,960, a salary that is greater even than Condoleeza Rice’s salary as Secretary of State, head of the Department that Riza was going to work for.
More lies and deceit from the neocon masters. Only problem is; the world is now beginning to wake up to their malevolent little tricks. No one is taken in any more.
