In the race to snatch children from the tightening noose around the Warsaw ghetto, she must use all her wiles.

The neocons and their allies have lost their administration but not their agenda or their wiles.
mid-12c., wil "wile, trick," perhaps from Old North French *wile (Old French guile), or directly from a Scandinavian source (cf. Old Norse vel "trick, craft, fraud," vela "defraud"). Perhaps ultimately related to Old English wicca "wizard" (see Wicca). Lighter sense of "amorous or playful trick" is from c.1600. Wily is attested from c.1300.
