I am a Yale Law School-educated attorney and whistleblower who reported international corruption to the US Congress. Robert Zoellick, former President of the World Bank, fired me after 20 years in the World Bank's legal department in retaliation and covered up the corruption. I testified to the UK Parliament and EU Parliaments. http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201213/cmselect/cmintdev/writev/402/contents.htm http://www.europarl.europa.eu/document/activities/cont/201105/20110518ATT19540/20110518ATT19540EN.pdf This cover-up of corruption is now about to cause a currency war and downgrade in the US credit rating. Mitt Romney hired Robert Zoellick as his national security transition planning chief. Congress is refusing to disburse the World Bank's capital increase because of this cover-up of corruption. http://www.whistleblower.org/storage/documents/whistleblowerlanguageinHR2055.pdf With corruption at the World Bank, the United States lost the 66 year old Gentlemen's Agreement for the US to appoint the president of the World Bank http://www.imf.org/external/np/cm/2010/042510.htm What to watch for in tonight's debate is whether the cover-up of corruption will continue, or whether the candidates will have to respond to a question about what they intend to do to fight this corruption.

It is a shame that these debates are treated as a boxing match. I believe Mr. Obama is trying to remain civil and coherent in this rarefied atmosphere where any claim is possible. He has been steering the ship through very troubled waters, and talks about real issues which he has confronted successfully. Mr. Romney has only vague slogans hard to test against the great challenges still to be faced.
