Zero to Ludicrous Irony in Two Easy Paragraphs

From the WaPo, the Official Republican Shill Newspaper, comes this article in support of Paul Wolfowitz, historically speaking one of the most despicable men on the planet in my opinion:
World Bank President Paul D. Wolfowitz yesterday disparaged a bank panel probing his handling of a pay raise for his girlfriend, accusing investigators of poisoning the atmosphere with leaks while depriving him of sufficient time to respond to accusations that he broke ethics rules.…"The inability of the committee to control leaks about its draft conclusions is very harmful, not just to Mr. Wolfowitz personally but to the institution," lawyer Robert S. Bennett said in a written statement on Wolfowitz's behalf. "The appearance that people are prejudging the outcome of the process weakens bank governance and disrespects both the board and the process."
Can anyone reasonably point to any group of men in history, other than neocons of Wolfwowitz' ilk, that have devolved civilization more, denigrated human dignity more, lifted rumor-mongering, fear-mongering, and war-mongering through the use of innuendo and lies to a new art form, and that have mastered any better the propaganda techniques that have reduced America to a third-world banana republic, the largest debtor nation on Earth, and succeeded in breaking the formally mightiest military in the world by "poisoning the atmosphere with leaks" that have damaged America's national security?

I didn't think so.
