Statement by John Kerry on Paul Wolfowitz’s Nomination to be President of the World Bank
“Coming on the heels of the appointment of John Bolton to be ambassador to the United Nations, this is now another mystifying choice by the Bush administration for an important role in the community of nations. It makes you wonder whether all the administration’s words about mending fences with our allies are just lip service. After Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz’s repeated and serious miscalculations about the costs and risks America would face in Iraq , I don’t believe he is the right person to lead the World Bank.”
But what Kerry doesn’t know is that Wolfowitz is really good with numbers.
Wolfie proved it prior to the war when he appeared before the House Budget Committee.
Ten billion? Did he throw 10 billion out there?
