Wolfowitz -'Me Am Robin Hood'

"The Fix is in at the World Bank, and what a fix we're going to be in."

"Wolfowitz's girlfriend, Shaha Ali Riza, is acting manager of external relations for the bank's Middle East/North Africa region. The official word is that there's no conflict of interest there. But that's bullshit. Riza's job is to be the flack for bank officials for projects in that region, which includes Iraq, which is the country we invaded at the behest of Deputy Secretary of Defense Wolfowitz."

"And she's no minor functionary. When Yasser Arafat died, World Bank President Jim Wolfensohn's official statement—"deepest condolences" and all that—was issued under her name. She was the powerful bank's official spokesman on the matter."

"Most of the people on the planet are too poor, thirsty, and starving to laugh."
