Wolfowitz is resigning!
Wolfowitz on Thursday announced that he would step down at the end of June, his leadership undermined by a furor over the compensation he arranged in 2005 for Shaha Riza, a bank employee.
Luckily, the White House is going to find a suitable replacement in short order. But really, who among us can replace such a man? America owes Wolfowitz a debt of honor and gratitude it can never hope to repay. He saved Iraq, he saved America, and he salvaged the World Bank’s miserable reputation. What can a nation such as ours reserve for such a hero? A ticker tape parade and a few airports named after him would hardly begin to cover it.
I see bright things coming in his future, though. Personally, I hope he runs for President, after Brownback’s two terms are up. I’d vote for him.
