When let loose, there is no boundary to human greed and the plotting for self-enrichment through others' money. What would it be like at the really high level?
So, with this in mind and especially as the matter was covered extensively when it began way back in May, I read elsewhere that Dominique Strauss-Kahn been released. Way, way back in May, I put forward the notion that he was set-up for removal from the IMF and that the case would not come to trial because the basis of the plot would be revealed - the tie-ins of the IMF, Cyrus Vance, Sarkozy etc are so well dissected that they could hardly not be brought up at any trial, so there was no trial.viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1009243&start=120
Let's have a closer look at the possibility of a set-up.
Dr Paul Craig Roberts -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Craig_Roberts
- argues that "It is possible that Strauss-Kahn eliminated himself and saved Washington the trouble. However, as a well-travelled person who has often stayed in New York hotels and in hotels in cities around the world, I have never experienced a maid entering unannounced into my room, much less when I was in the shower."
He notes that "Strauss-Kahn, upon arriving at JFK airport for his scheduled flight, discovered that he did not have his cell phone and telephoned the hotel, the scene of the alleged crime. It boggles the mind that anyone could possibly think that a person fleeing from his crime would call the scene of the crime, ask about his left behind cell phone, and tell them where he was" and "It has not been revealed how the authorities knew Strauss-Kahn was on a flight to France. However, by arresting him aboard his scheduled flight just as it was to depart, the authorities created the image of a man fleeing from a crime. "
Then "in rapid succession, reeking of orchestration, a French woman steps forward and declares that a decade ago she was nearly raped by Strauss-Kahn. This was followed by Kristin Davis, the Manhattan Madam of the prostitute who did in Eliot Spitzer before he could get the banksters on Wall Street, stepping forward to announce that one of her call girls refused to service Strauss-Kahn a second time because he was too rough in the act.
With hunting season opened, any woman whose career would benefit from publicity, or whose bank account would bless a damage award, can now step forward and claim to have been a victim or near victim of Strauss-Kahn. "
Additionally, "one of the most striking (anomalies) is the confirmed reports in the French and British press that a political activist for French President Sarkozy, Jonathan Pinet, tweeted the news of Strauss-Kahn’s arrest to Arnaud Dassier, a spin doctor for Sarkozy, before the news was announced by the New York police. Pinet’s explanation for how he was the first to know is that a “friend” in the Sofitel Hotel, where the alleged crime took place, told him. Is it merely a coincidence that the men assigned the task of removing the Strauss-Kahn threat to French President Sarkozy’s re-election had a clued-in friend in the Sofitel Hotel? Did the police clue-in the “friend” before they made the public announcement? If so, why?"
The 'why' is that "Strauss-Kahn had emerged as a threat to the establishment. Polls showed that as the socialist candidate, he was the odds-on favorite to defeat the American candidate, Sarkozy, in the upcoming French presidential election. Perhaps it was only electoral posturing to help defeat Sarkozy, but Strauss-Kahn indicated that he intended to move the International Monetary Fund away from its past policy of making the poor pay for the mistakes of the rich. He spoke of strengthening collective bargaining, and of restructuring mortgages, tax and spending policies in order that the economy would serve ordinary people in addition to the banksters. Strauss-Kahn said that regulation needed to be restored to financial markets and implied that a more even distribution of income was required. "
"No high-ranking figure who was serving the establishment would be destroyed on the basis of the word of an immigrant maid living in a sub-let apartment in a building for aids victims. The very notion that the US establishment craves justice to this extent is a total absurdity."http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php

If I recall correctly, DSK repackaged the IMF's rescue plan for Ireland with much less onerous conditions but this was scuppered by Timothy Geithner and 'austerity' (wholesale transfer of assets to international banks) was re-imposed. DSK really made some powerful enemies, so they used his 'baggage' to eliminate him.
