Wolfowitz 'Resigns' from World Bank

NYT: Paul Wolfowitz has resigned from the World Bank. But no one's talking about the money:
[T]here was no information Thursday night on whether he would receive any sort of severance package or pension, or be reimbursed for legal fees from his long battle.
Yeah, sure. It was all about principle, right?

Meanwhile, WaPo reporter Karen DeYoung, with help from the redoubtable Walter Pincus and others, details the incredibly long list of miscalculations, mistaken analyses, bonehead ideas, and just plain stupid moves Wolfowitz has made over his career of forty-some years. Can there be many Americans with a track record as dismal as Paul Wolfowitz'?
