Angry Bears and Unqualified Wolfowitz's

In support of the post by Kash at Angry Bear, this is from The World Bank Group quoting the Financial Times:

The White House's consideration of Paul Wolfowitz, deputy defense secretary, for the presidency of the World Bank has again raised the question of what qualifications are required to head the world's leading development institution, reports The Financial Times.

The World Bank Group goes on to note that:

Wolfowitz has experience in international relations, including a period as ambassador to Indonesia, but is not a development expert. European officials have diplomatically focused on this shortfall, rather than over his role as an architect of the controversial war in Iraq.

The qualifications are simple. There's only one. Toe the party line.
