There is breaking news out of Washington tonight that the President of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz is resigning after weeks of drawn-out controversy1. He was one of the architects of the Iraq War at the Pentagon and came under fire at his new job at the Bank for the generous compensation package he arranged for his girlfriend, a longtime World Bank employee. Our chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell is in our Washington Bureau with late details on this. Andrea, Good evening.

Good evening, Brian. Wolfowitz refused to quit and told the World Bank's board of directors acknowledged as it did tonight that it had also made mistakes, for the bank systems needed to be fixed2, and that Wolfowitz had at least thought he was acting3 ethically4 when he arranged that generous pay agreement for his longtime companion, a Middle East expert of the bank, Shaha Riza. Now he still did not want to quit until that statement came and the last minute problems today were the administration, the White House insisting that he had to stay long enough, so that the administration, the United States could name his successor. Names being considered include Deputy Treasury5 Secretary Robert M. Kimmitt, and other officials including a former official, Bob Zoellick. Brian?
All right, Andrea Mitchell on this breaking story out of Washington tonight.
