Strauss Khan and the knight’s move

scacco-matto.jpg


Strauss Khan is the new favourite for the race for the Élysée Palace. The accusations against him, as reported by the New York Times, seem to be completely without foundation. If there was a relationship with the chambermaid at the Sofitel Hotel in New York, it seems to have been completely consensual. And what’s more, it has been verified that the lady in question has told loads of lies about her past life, as has been found in the investigations. The woman, after making the accusations against Strauss Khan, had a discussion on the telephone with a former prisoner, from whom she received 100,000 dollars in the last few years. They talked about the opportunity to denounce the former president of the IMF.
On 29 May, Putin raised serious doubts about Strauss Khan’s guilt, concealing an international plot. Putin, speaking with all his experience at the top of the KGB said: “It’s difficult for me to evaluate the various underlying political reasons and I don’t want to directly enter the affair, but I cannot believe that everything is as it seems and as it has been presented. It doesn’t convince me.” The collapse of the charges against Strauss Khan has come two days after the appointment of Christine Lagarde as head of the IMF with the whole fanfare from Sarkozy who has succeeded in his aim of placing his favourite Minister of the Economy in the post left vacant by his erstwhile nemesis.
The forthcoming freeing of DSK also comes, strangely enough, two days after the approval by the Greek parliament of the draconian measures to avoid the default that will strangle the next two generations, but that saves the French banks that are in possession of a mountain of Greek State bonds. The day of his arrest, that happened with the maximum of publicity in the world, almost as though he were a newbie Josef Mengele DSK was due to deal with the crisis in Greece in a meeting with Angela Merkel. Athens considered the former head of the IMF as a precious ally to get out of the crisis.
“Cui prodest” {Who has benefitted} from having Strauss Khan in handcuffs and badmouthed in all the media? In this case the answer is not difficult. Sarkozy, after the appointment of Lagarde, declared "It’s a victory for France!” Long live France and above all, long live monsieur Sarkozy!

This whole affair goes to show that we just do not know where the truth lies any more. We are fed a diet of half truths, lies, rumours, scandals by the media and politicians in a world plagued by corruption and cover ups.
It is hard to believe that the NYPD would drag a well known political figure off an aircraft, charge him with unlawful sex or rape and keep him under house arrest without any foundation or evidence whatsoever. DSK's attitude after his arrest was not that of an innocent man victim of a conspiracy.
It is difficult to believe there could have been consensual sex between two total strangers within a minute of their meeting in an hotel room. This was not love at first sight between a well known married personaility and a poor African immigrant hotel worker. It is not the first time that DSK has been accused of sexual harrassment, his record is not clean.
And when you have a wealthy powerful person with wealthy powerful unscupulous lawyers who will delve into a "victim's" past to uncover all the dirt they can find, the "victim" stands little chance. If they learn she pinched a doll from another child when she was three years old they will accuse her of being dishonest and a thief.
This was always going to be a one sided battle. But it seems that while the judge released DSK fronm house arrest the charge still stands. Will we ever learn the truth? Will we ever learn if we are looking at a Doctor Strauss or Mr Kahn
