If one of you guys wants to walk us through the whole theory I would love to hear it explained. So far other than to ruin his run for the Presidency there arent any real solid cases built to show why someone would want to do this.

Here's a list of people who might enjoy DSK taking a fall


Rivals and enemies within the IMF would also benefit by seeing the haughty Strauss-Kahn embarrassed and deposed.

The French weekly newsmagazine L’Express speculated: “[The conspiracy] could have come from anywhere. From the French left-wing, from the right-wing or from the IMF.”

Michelle Sabban, a senior councilor in Paris and a supporter of Strauss-Kahn told reporters: “I am convinced it is an international conspiracy. It's the IMF they wanted to decapitate, not so much the Socialist primary candidate. It's not like him. Everyone knows that his weakness is seduction, women. That's how they got him."

Even some of Strauss-Kahn’s political enemies defended him.

Dominique Paille, a center-right French politician, told BFM Television: “It is totally hallucinatory. If it is true, this would be a historic moment, but in the negative sense, for French political life. I hope that everyone respects the presumption of innocence. I cannot manage to believe this affair."

Similarly, Henri de Raincourt, France’s minister for overseas co-operation, told reporters: "We cannot rule out the thought of a trap. I refuse to have a personal opinion and say, 'Yes it was a trap,' or 'No, it wasn't a trap.' I don't know…. I am not ruling anything out. If this turns out to have been a trap, let me tell you that it would not be to the credit of those who set it."

Anti-Semitism might also be a factor.

Strauss-Kahn is Jewish and an outspoken supporter of Israel in a country (France) that has long been associated with anti-Semitism.

The extreme right-wing National Front party led by Marine Le Pen (daughter of the notorious Jean-Marie Le Pen) has already exploited the rape story to attack Strauss-Kahn’s character.

Even mainstream politicians have long savaged Strauss-Kahn.

Earlier this year, the leader of the UMP in parliament Christian Jacob described Strauss-Kahn as a “Champagne Socialist” who is not “the image of the France we love.”

Jacob’s comment was widely suspected of being a disguised form of anti-Semitism.

Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux, a member of Sarkozy’s government, had earlier said that Strauss-Kahn had spent too many years in Washington and the IMF to really be familiar with France.

“Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who is currently far from France, is not necessarily the best placed to know the problems of the French people at first hand,” he told LCI television.

The ferocity of attacks by Conservatives and other in France on Strauss-Kahn seemed to indicate that they feared he could take over the country in next year’s elections.

Should we talk about how America's protecting druglords, mass-murderer and racists or should we keep the trashtalk and the xenophobia for later on ?

France does not cover rapists, Tristane Bannon did not talk abot her harassment allegations until now, DSK wasn't even juged for that story and her mother is running for the primaries of the socialist party which sound a bit strange when you're considering that she's boasting about the fact that she pushed her daughter to reveal it now. And you've got to be careful with the presumption of innocence, he's not proven guilty yet.

SHOCKING STRAUSS-KAHN INTERVIEW: I Could See Myself Becoming The Victim Of A "Honey Trap"

Very strange.

Three weeks ago, Dominique Strauss Kahn said he could see himself becoming victim of a sex trap.

In an interview with Liberation, a French publication, on April 28, he said he foresaw 3 main challenges ahead for him (the implied thing being, if he ran for President of France).

"The money, women and my Jewishness."

Couple of questions?

1) Why would a guy that has the money for the best of service assualt a maid?

2) If the timeline report is correct, why did they not arrest him at the airport PRIOR to boarding? Would have taken at least an hour to get to JFK from the Sofitel on a good day, plus time to get through security and to the plane. Report states that police were there 'moments' after the report came in. The report was made to the police 'moments' after the assault by both the victim and her peers accounts. This would have left ample time to issue an arrest warrant that would have come up on him when he identified himself at the airport.

Something doesn't add up...

There is a piece missing from the story? Maybe he is guilty, maybe not...

If the guy, whether guilty or innocent pissed off so many people around him, for heaven's sake he should have kept his peccadillos to himself so they could not be used against him.
As fare as the druglords, mass-murderers and rapists..they get more protection than I do as an AA female - this gal accusing the fellow of rape iis going to have a hard row to run either way. Attitudes may be a little more lenient in France but they aren't here and he should have known this.

Why pay for it when you figure you can get it for free from someone with a lower social standing who you feel is an easy mark? You are applying logical thought processes to someone who (if it indeed happened) was not thinking logically at the time.

What you don't seem to get is that attitudes are not more lenient in France and that he's innocent until proven guilty.

Wheter or not he's found guilty of those crimes will be answered during the trial, I don't care to be honest, I'm just saying that France didn't dropped the charges against DSK for the Banon file as Tristane Banon didn't tell anything until now, so your accusation of hiding rapists and being more lenient is false and offending.

Regarding question 2, as I understand it, he was located by the NYPD when he called the hotel from JFK to report he had forgotten his cellphone in the room. He was arrested one hour later.

In addition, the US likely benefits as his removal from the IMF will change leadership, which will have a likely direct impact on talks regarding Greece and ireland's economy, negatively effecting the Euro, which obviously benefits the US dollar.

This guy was actually turning the IMF into an organization that helped poor and developing countries, especially in comparison to the way it had been run previous to his leadership. I would suspect those who want to continue using the IMF as their own personal money laundering scheme would like to see him go.

The list goes on and on, and yet there are certain members here on ATS who unquestioningly accept the MSM's story-line here about what a terrible rapist this guy is. It's kind of an obvious tip of the hand, so to speak.

So much anecdotal evidence its really sickening.

Every time I start to think this is just a media lynching along comes some pertinent sounding news.



Strauss-Kahn was to have been in court on Sunday but that was delayed by medical and forensic examinations.


So maybe the results of the exams are the reason he was held without bail?

There is a big difference in psychology between a rapist and a horny wife cheater.

I'd much rather see this guy get a fair trial without all the media hype considering the consequences. Maybe the media will quiet down in a few days.

he biggest red flag for me is the quote being attributed to a police official saying 'it looks like he left in an awful big hurry' (paraphrase) because he left his cell phone. That's a highly speculative statement to get from a cop in an open investigation. It paints him guilty in the press, which they generally avoid at all costs.

And yet that quote implying guilt is being repeated in all the MSM stories.

It's funny to me that so many on ATS would blindly accept the story as being reported only a few days into an ongoing story. Interestingly enough, these are the very same people who reject 'official' stories in regards to a myriad of topics.

Wow, just got into researching about the Vice-Chief of IMF:

John Lipsky, guess where he comes from ? He was vice chairman of JPMorgan.
and, drumroll,........ he resigned on March 12th just two days before the DSK-scandal. Coincidence ??

Article on his resignment:
www.reuters.com... I920110512


I agree this case smells to high heaven.

Harlem is a hop skip and jump to Manhatten. About 1 mile, give or take. But good question.

Gadz...what a dork, lol


"Dork" is too mild a word for DSK. This isn't some goofy dufus.

DSK is probably a creepy perv, a serial abuser of women, who has managed to get away with his sexual crimes because of his power. Or because TPTB had a use for him.

He's not being protected anymore.

Whatever his guilt or innocence might be in this specific case, I'm sure there's a LIST of crimes this creep IS guilty of -- that the general public may never hear about.

That's some pretty interesting speculation. Do you often assume people are serial abusers of women based on speculative smear jobs in the MSM?

That's a very interesting question. Harlem is in Upper Manhattan. Miles to the south, is the Sofitel Hotel on West 44th St. The Sofitel is south of Rockefeller Center & Central Park.

As I understand it, DSK was arrested at the Kennedy Airport.

Why was he transferred to Harlem? Is the Harlem police station a transfer point to Rikers Island?

Is there anyone here who can explain this?

It's not far-fetched speculation. Have you not read the many posts on this thread indicating that DSK has a history of sexual misconduct? I trust my gut.

As I posted before, whether or not DSK is guilty or not of this particular sex crime, I don't have any doubts that he is guilty of other crimes. He's an IMF scumbag.

Are you bent on defending DSK's innocence?
