Negligence

Say it ain't so....
Pledges made last year to substantially increase the volume of official development assistance, including a doubling of aid to Africa by 2010, must be met. Responding to a question after the briefing, Mr Wolfowitz named US as a major defaulter to the commitment.

Of course when one spends all of ones International Aid and development funds on making war well.....what do you expect. The Cost of Iraq War calculator is set to reach $318.5 billion by September 30th, the end of fiscal year 2006.

Wolfowitz isn't he the guy who was in charge of the war in Iraq, the one that was supposed to be self funding thanks to all the oil.

Only in America can you miscalculate in such epic porportions as Wolfowitz has done on Iraq and be appointed President of the World Bank.

In the private sector, dismissal would be too kind.

And its a dleicious irony to hear Wolfowitz lecture countries on corruption and the need for good governance when he was part of the Big Lie that got the US into the Iraq war.
