Frustrations Boil Over at World Bank


Graeme Wheeler, the World Bank’s managing director has spoken out concerning the recent corruption charges brought against it’s President Paul Wolfowitz, saying he was “trying to impose Bush administration ideas” on numerous issues at the bank.

Wheeler also accuses Wolfowitz of using “anti-corruption” campaigns as a platform to undermine governments that worked against U.S. interests, and unilaterally freezing payments to ongoing bank projects based on his private whims.

Mr. Wolfowitz has apologized for his behavior, however the recent scandals within the banks management has caused unease, especially among Europeans, about American influence over the organization and strategies toward ending poverty.

  Mr Wolfowitz.  
"Mr Wolfowitz's sartorial deficiencies were revealed when he took his shoes off while visiting a mosque in Edirne , western Turkey. Both of the grey socks sported holes with his big toes peeking through. The last World Bank annual report, for 2006, puts the president's salary as of 1 July, 2005, at $391,440 (£200,279)."
