Insiders say that even the US treasury secretary, Henry Paulson, is convinced that Mr Wolfowitz should resign because his behaviour would not have been appropriate in a multinational business.Since the Enron scandal, companies trading in America have been forced to comply with legislation that imposes rules of disclosure and governance on bosses.ANNOUNCER: Tonight on FRONTLINE, the inside story of why the president of the United States seems so determined to go to war with Iraq.

A former senior employee added: "When his predecessor, Jim Wolfensohn, went on foreign trips, even to the Middle East, he was invariably met by the local country office driver, who would pick him up in a battered Volvo.Now, everywhere Wolfowitz goes he has to be accompanied by personal protection people."Internal critics say that Mr Wolfowitz's appointment has endangered the security of other bank staff.
