Let's get back to the trial by media of Dominique Strauss-Kahn or DSK as I shall call him from here on in.
Have you caught the latest?
No? I am sure many missed it.
While most were distracted in Canada with the "royals" and "celebrating" the Canada Day holiday and the people of the US are revving up to their "Independence" Day fireworks, the DSK case is falling apart at the seams.
No surprise on that development, or the timing. None at all!
Let me bring you up to speed. On June 30th it was reported that the case against DSK was filled with major holes. That is not a surprise. The "case" was curious, for so many reasons
This news follows hot on the heels of the selection/appointment of the new IMF head. Christine Lagarde, from France, was appointed on June 28/2011
I had mentioned previously, if it was going to be a European, it was going to be this woman.
One reason for this is the exposure of the French banks to the Greek debt.
So we have a new head of the IMF and suddenly just two days later DSK is looking to be exonerated?
You may recall another curiously timed incident in the saga of DSK?
DSK resigns as IMF head and is suddenly released from prison.
Timing, it's all in the timing.
I covered that in this post
You may also recall I had put this link in the comment section of that same post
It starts out like this-
"According to Canadian scholar Michel Chossudovsky, the arrest of IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn has all the appearances of a frame-up ordered by powerful members of the financial establishment, in liaison with France’s Nicolas Sarkozy"
Then ends with this-
Without a frame-up instrumented by very powerful people acting in the background, the head of the IMF would have been treated in an entirely different way. The mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg and Timothy Geithner would have come to his rescue. The matter would have been hushed up with a view to protecting the reputation of a powerful public figure. But that did not happen.And it's worth taking the time to read what is in between!
From the outset this story reeked of frame up. Realistically speaking the scum at the top, do stuff like this regularly. They don't get arrested. We peons usually wouldn't even hear of this kind of activity, save for victims trying to get their stories out to a press that would simply ignore them. But, not in this case. This story was all hype and trial by media.
What about this saga indicates frame-up?
For one, as is stated at the end of above article. Had this been a real crime it would have been quickly covered up by DSK's fellow banking cronies. The fact that no cover up ensued should give us a clue that it was a set up and who was behind it.
Mayor Bloomberg showed his hand with this statement -“ If you do not want to do Perp Walk, do not commit crime “
Secondly. The swiftness lady justice acted with???....
Great for trial by media, but, having no bearing on reality
Here is reality- With reported rapes, the DSK case is the exception
The charges filed recently against former IMF chief, have perpetuated a myth: that the U.S. justice system moves swiftly and effectively to resolve allegations of sexual assault.
-Every two minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the United States
-We also know that an estimated 60% of these assaults go unreported.
So the question is, do the 40% who are not reluctant to contact the authorities for help actually see justice done?
The answer: It depends.
Nationally, police arrest a suspect in only half of the sexual assault complaints they receive.
Most of those arrested are prosecuted, but fewer than two-thirds of those prosecuted are convicted. Moreover, not all those convicted are sentenced to incarceration. In the end, an estimated 1 out of 16 rapists spends time in jail.
From reading that we understand that DSK's quick arrest, perp walk, incarceration at Rykers Island and over the top conditions for release were all done to create a media hysteria. A feeding frenzy of sorts.
What about the maid?
It turns out DSK's "maid" victim was/is a prostitute.
Her story is full of holes and the charges may be dropped.
Some media outlets are claiming she is a maid, hooking on the side.
I don't believe that. I believe she is a prostitute. Not a maid.
I think the maid angle is one that will enable the Hotel to play innocent on it's role in the frame up of DSK. "They didn't know"
Back to the hooker. She was hired to frame DSK. The notorious honeypot tactic was used to bring him down.
I am not going to go into all the problems with her so called story. And, what a story it is.
This alone demonstrates the over the top effort to frame DSK
After the alleged assault took place-
" she got up and ran for the door and started spitting Dominique Strauss-Kahn's semen out all over that hotel room. She spit it on the wall and the floor."Quoting from the print edition of the Toronto Star-
Therefore she did NOT run for the door to "escape", because she paused to spit semen on the walls and on the floor" "All over that hotel room". She then presumably left for the door?
"She got up and ran for the door and started spilling DSK's semen out all over that hotel room"
I don't know about you, but, had I just been assaulted I would have run as far and as fast away from my assailant as I could. To safety. I would not pause to spit semen in a number of places, so I could direct police to the evidence later. That appears to be an attempt to ensure a sensational crime scene.
That type of evidence could be gotten from a throat swab I would assume?
Something else about the maid/hooker that bothered me. Her identity was covered up in the North American press. The news outlets never made any attempt to contact her. I did a post on this, mentioning I found it non-credible. With pictures!
Just a thought...
Getting back to her identity, photos and the name given.
It always bothers me when we see multiple pictures of one person, that don't appear to be one and the same person. I also have doubts that the name given, Nafissatou Diallo, is the real name of the prostitute/maid.
The tone of the media towards the maid is changing also. A complete about face has taken place as the media moves to discredit the maid/victim/prostitute.
Linking her to prostitution rings operating elsewhere, tax evasion etc.,
We've have covered the frame up and the victim, who has gone from saint to sinner. Let's get to the why this may have taken place-
So what was to be gained from framing Strauss Kahn?
How about access to confidential IMF files or resources?
When DSK was arrested he was very concerned about information on his confiscated cell phones.
As he was being ripped out his first class seat on an Air France airplane and arrested, Dominique Strauss-Kahn had his 3 cell phones and iPad confiscated. And now his lawyers want to ensure that any information on his mobile devices stays confidential.Shortly after his arrest and the confiscation of his cell phones and I-pad the IMF reported being hacked!
What's on the devices?
It might have to do with the IMF, and/or there might be personal calls.
Several senior officials with knowledge of the attack said it was both sophisticated and serious. “This was a very major breach”
A very major breach, shortly after DSK's arrest, when all kinds of IMF info could have easily fallen into conniving hands??
"Because the fund has been at the center of economic bailout programs for Portugal, Greece and Ireland — and possesses sensitive data on other countries that may be on the brink of crisis — its database contains potentially market-moving information."
Market moving information? Who could benefit the most from that? Banks & Bankers?
The claims made that this attack took place before the arrest are not credible, for the simple reason that IMF staffers were not notified to take precautions to protect information until June.
If the hack had taken place months prior to that, it is certain that IMF staff would have been notified immediately to be careful. They were not notified until June. June 8th to be specific!
""Last week we detected some suspicious file transfers, and the subsequent investigation established that a Fund desktop computer had been compromised and used to access some Fund systems," according to a June 8 e-mail to employees from Chief Information Officer Jonathan Palmer. "At this point, we have no reason to believe that any personal information was sought for fraud purposes."
It sure looks as if the hack took place after DSK's arrest. After confidential IMF information may have fallen into shall we say, interested parties hands.
Remember, It's all in the timing!
