IMF Head Arrested Over Hotel Sex Attack


slatest.slate.com

Dominique Strauss-Kahn questioned by police in New York in connection with a sexual assault of a hotel maid.




nternational Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn was pulled from an airplane moments before it was supposed to depart and was being questioned Saturday night regarding a sexual assault against a hotel maid. Strauss-Kahn, a likely French presidential candidate, was removed from the first-class section of a Paris-bound Air France flight at JFK airport in New York and was taken into custody. He has not

Whatever ends up happening with this man, this news will surely rock the French political world. Strauss-Kahn was widely seen as the leading contender to become the Socialist candidate for the country’s presidency.

This is not the first time Strauss-Kahn, who took over the leadership of the IMF in late 2007, has been involved in a scandal. (2008)

These are the people that really own you?

My feelings are..

An interesting take on this news from Juan Cole and so true for me.



What is it about the United States that makes for harsh prosecutions over sex crimes but lets leaders off the hook when it comes to war crimes? New York police rushed to arrest Dominique Strauss-Kahn , the head of the international Monetary Fund, on Saturday on learning of charges against him by a hotel maid of sexual assault. This quick action against a wealthy and powerful individual, seeking justice for a person at the bottom rung of the American social hierarchy, is praiseworthy. It affirms the principle that no one is above the law.

But the widows and orphans of Iraq cannot hope that the New York police would similarly frog-march George W. Bush off his first-class flight and arrest him for crimes against humanity.

I wasn't disputing the nature of the alleged horrific crime.. IMHO the elite protect their own, so when someone in a position of power is given over to be dealt with by the Police, it really does make me wonder what the wider game is..

ETA: My understanding is those who commit these type of offences usually have a long history of committing similar offences.. so with my tin foil hat firmly in place, I am questioning why now??

We Europeans are going to give the IMF( location USA),power over the monetary system by centralizing its power in one place.(Arnoud boot economist/IMF employee said that recently)
Hey there are good people there at the top.

I believe this Strauss guy has some like-minded friends there,

It could be that there is a wider game to be played.

Also could be.

Rich man over time loose reality, he buys what he needs. Rich man has sexual urges, which in normal conditions he pays probably some expensive theme hookers.
Like that max mosley guy from F1.


You think you are god in time

Technically you could argue that our economic system is inherently evil, and gods work would be to use the greed that fuels it, to destroy it. That's what they're doing, right? God is too busy helping the Yankees win the world series to get involved in this personally
