So Paul Wolfowitz has reflected on his demise and fingered the real culprits (OJ style): THE MEDIA!!!
Here is the money quote:
"I'm pleased that finally the board did accept that I acted in good faith and acted ethically"
YES BUT ONLY BECAUSE YOU AGREED TO RESIGN IF THEY DROPPED THE CHARGES!!!!!!!!!!!
Let me see if I've got this straight:
1. Board gonna fire Wolfie.
2. Wolfie cuts deal to resign in exchange for his name being "cleared".
3. Wolfie then, since his actions are no longer the issue, feels free to create a reason for why he's quitting and chooses to pin it on the media's stirring up the troops with their trash.
Well played sir, well played indeed.
ps. Given Bush's proclivity for hockey style nicknames, don't you guys think its apodictically certain he called Wolfowitz "Wolfie"??
