Looks like he didn't do what he was told. Serious does anyone believe that the leader of the IMF would get caught with something like this, and if they would that it would be on the news? This was allowed because TPB wanted it. Sex crimes (some of the most depraved) happen everyday with these goons without them getting touched, once they do it's because they disobeyed.


Very good point.

Whatever this is, it's fascinating and it's bound to have unforeseen ramifications.

Bush Rape Victim's Suicide ? News Story Blacked Out Nation Wide

www.israelforum.com...

also as rumour would have it Hitler was the son of a banker and the maid


I don't believe this story and I hated Dubya when he was President. I think this woman was deranged.

The only thing interesting about this story is the news blackout around it.

lol Seriously, even if the woman had the stomach to bite, it could very well get her killed. He would be in agony, but it doesn't guarantee she could get away safely.

A chinese may soon be at the head of the IMF (4 euros previously) that's the latest i hear. DSK has been under pressure to have an asiatic representant in the board in recent times.
I say he's been canned in a old fashion way carefully planned by the american-asian cartel, executed by the americans that is my firm belief now.
Y'all so indebted i should have seen it coming (survival instinct / Power- grabbing), dollar is worth nothing and recession is around the corner .In any event rest assured it's not anodin, they've found the perfect mark.
He should hire an expert in lies (micro-facial expressions) that's his best bet imo.


MikeboydUS's theory couldn't be more on point

I suppose some very powerful people think they're above the law but this guy put his name forward to serve his country and he's married to another high profile individual.

It just doesn't seem logical that he would pick out some random maid and commit such a violent act.





I am more surprised that he was able to then any thing else. You have to understand that people at the top tend to be less rational and more Id based individuals.

Here's another interesting element:

"IMF bylaws state that its officials "shall be immune from legal process with respect to acts performed by them in their official capacity except when the fund waives this immunity." Strauss-Kahn's attorneys did not answer questions from CNN about whether he may claim that diplomatic immunity covers such an allegation."

www.cnn.com...


In the Fox broadcast, the talking head said specifically that Strauss-Kahn does NOT have diplomatic immunity.

Was the talking head wrong?

He is immune until 'the fund waives this immunity'? What does the fund means?

This does not compute. If he did commit such an act, he is so powerful that he would never have been carted away in public for all to see. He would have just paid (bribed) his way out of it. Or he would never have been caught.


Well, maybe. But if it happened very quickly, there is a possibility that the people at the lower levels of the NYPD did their job before anyone higher up could intervene on his behalf.

I doubt it, Illusions. When the call went in, the location (a very exclusive hotel -- VIPs) would have red-flagged the call. They would not send clueless rookies to answer a call in a place like that.

Just wanted to point out that Tristane Banon, the French female journalist, said that she was the victim of a sexual attack från Strauss-Kahn already back in 2002. She spoke about this in a tv interview 2007, but Strauss-Kahns name was not mentioned then (it was bleeped out).
www.guardian.co.uk...

Quote from the article: "Banon consulted a lawyer, but did not press charges. 'I didn't want to be known to the end of my days as the girl who had a problem with the politician'."

And this coming from a women that seems to have a good socio-economic status. It is not difficult to see how others have shut up, if they had a problem with him. Especially when a lot of people think like people in this thread: "Oh, a man like him would never, blabla". That is what men like him know and are hiding behind.

Also, the mother of Tristane Banon has this to say: "... she had dissuaded her daughter from legal action because she believed Strauss-Kahn's behaviour had been out of character and because of close links with his family. 'Today I am sorry to have discouraged my daughter from complaining. I bear a heavy responsibility,' she said."

When even a the mother of a victim of a rape attack has the offenders back, then it is hard to have any justice, one can imagine...

The Guardian



"However, we want to stress that our employee has been working with Sofitel New York for three years and we have been completely satisfied with the quality of her work and behaviour." The 32-year-old hotel worker told police she entered Strauss-Kahn's room to clean it at around 1pm on Saturday. He allegedly emerged from the bathroom naked, ran after her and dragged her into a bedroom where he began sexually assaulting her on the bed. According to the police account of the "brutal" attack, he locked the door to the suite, then dragged the maid down a hallway into a bathroom where he assaulted her again. The woman escaped from the room and was later treated in hospital for minor injuries. Police found Strauss-Kahn had left his room seemingly "in a hurry", leaving behind personal items including his phone.


If he were innocent, why would he do this?



Strauss-Kahn does not have diplomatic immunity as head of the IMF. After a night in police custody in Harlem, he was expected to appear before a county judge. Under New York state law, a criminal sexual act and attempted rape both carry potential 15- to 20-year prison sentences. Unlawful imprisonment carries a three- to five-year sentence.


He does not have diplomatic immunity.

Not necessarily.

Its very poor logic. You dont always rise to a high position just because you are "smart." Sometimes, you rise to a high position because you are a ruthless SOB who will use and trample on anyone who gets in your way and you also happen to be smart.

Smart alone doesnt take you very far. You have to desire power, and be willing to use it. Both characteristics that could very well make you a rapist.

But, that said, it is also a possibility that he is being framed, and I dont want to take away from that. Im just pointing out that your analysis is incomplete and a little skewed and starry eyed.

There are lots of very dysfunctional people in positions of power.


In some cases, you don't even have to be smart, just devious. I've seen people that weren't so smart get ahead because they were devious and this is just on a regular job not some high -falutin' position of power.


If by "devious" you mean deceptive, I fully agree. Some people do not balk at doing evil to get ahead -- they do things that decent people with a conscience could not do. They will out-and-out lie and never lose sleep over damaging other people's reputations & lives.

Evil people exist at all levels of society.

I was thinking....what if they (the International Bankers) are going to frame this guy as the reason the depression hit, or that is, the on that is going to happen real soon. Is this guy a patsy? Did they need to sacrifice this guy because they needed someone to blame for the financial debt.......someone that we could all blame 'individually' so that the "evil machine" can escape blame and then keep on going? Is this guy a sacrifice to alleviate attention from Barack Obama or Bush? I feel that a financial collapse is going to happen within a few months tops. It's possible that this guy is just another financial Lee Harvey Oswald. He may have even been put in that top position just for that reason. Kind of like raising baby chickens.......they must feel real important being treated so well and being fed so well and having all that attention ......until the day of the slaughter, then it becomes clear what their whole existance was for.

I like this guys theory. This seems like just a bloggers sarcasm. As far as I can tell, this is NOT really a quote from a spokesman of the NY District Attorney I looked to see if it were anywhere else, its not. But its funny none the less, and it may help those who cant see how someone could do such a thing.

www.associatedcontent.com...


According to the arrest report the Ghanaian maid, sized 5'7", was accosted in the suite's foyer by a nude Strauss-Kahn, who dragged her to his room and attempted to have his way with her.

Speaking about the case, a spokesman for the NY district attorney's office rationalized it in this way: "In the accused's defense, it is his job to screw third world countries. In a misguided way, we believe seeing the Ghanaian woman may have triggered his baser professional instincts. Unfortunately for (Strauss-Kahn), the policies of the IMF don't apply in these United States."



That's hilarious. I'm sure this is some blogger's sarcasm. A 5' 7" Ghanaian -- he could have chosen a smaller victim. If she's anything like the Ghanaian women I've met, she's probably amazingly strong. (The result of a lifetime of hard physical labor.)

Someone should check if her family in Ghana is suddenly "in the money."

This is what I find to be one of the problems underlying in the current developed world legal system. Specifically with police and how they conduct themselves. The law should be non-judgmental of race, sex, religion or country of origin. This case only goes further to increase my perception of police and the law in general siding with the female sex. So often do you find that claims or allegations made by anybody of the female sex against a male are taken very seriously. Almost a "Take action now and investigate later" situation, where the male is arrested without hesitation. Where allegations are made by a male against a female follow the opposite rule applies: "Investigate, prove it and take action later" often resulting in the police officer just talking to the parties involved. Violent crimes against males by female are as frequent if not more frequent, however, they are not reported as often or taken further than a talking to, so statistics do not show a majority of them.
I am talking on a female perspective here. Having witnessed a very violent wife assaulting her husband publicly and in private. Living next door to them I do get a "good listen" in.
The IMF situation is a prime case of the police and legal system taking action now and proving it later based on the word of a female.

It's a huge thing in France because if he has to stay in the US for the trial, he will miss the primary election for the PS' representant and thus won't be able to participate to the 2012 presidential election. Considering the fact that others candidates are jokes, it screws up the whole Socialist plan.
He was Nicolas Sarkozy's main opponent and now, even if he's cleared of all kind of suspicion, people will still associate him with sexual harassment so he kinda ruined his chances.

It also means that the Front National (far right) has now a good chance to have a fair fight against Sarkozy, who's popularity is rocking the bottom these days.

Well, nobody liked him in the IMF because they see him as a leftist, Sarkozy hate him because he's his stronger opponent, many socialists candidate don't like him because they see him as a rightist, he was the man to defeat.

Right on time for a sexual allegation against him, don't you think so?

It's not the first time he's accused of sexual harassment (well, it's the first time we're talking about rape but still, DSK is known for being "flirty") so it's not that suprising.
I don't know if he's guilty but there is one thing I know : even if he didn't assault that girl, he's not a saint and one day or another he would have fallen from his pedestal.
