Wolfowitz Suggested for World Bank Job

Now, this is scary. I think the White House would be hard pressed to find a more controverisal and polarizing figure for the job than Paul Wolfowitz. Wolfowitz is widely known as one of the hardest neoconservatives in Washington. He was one of the main forces behind the invasion of Iraq, and, as it states in Bob Woodward's book Plan of Attack, his main motives were not WMD or freedom for Iraq, it was oil. In a position as important as head of the World Bank, I'd be skeptical about Wolfowitz.

Excerpt
WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) on Wednesday tapped Defense Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, who has been a lightning rod for criticism of the U.S. invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) and other defense policies, to take over as head of the World Bank (news - web sites).

Bush told a news conference that Wolfowitz, now Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's top deputy, was "a compassionate, decent man who will do a fine job at the World Bank. That's why I put him up."
