Seems The Honey Trap Media Lynching Of IMF Head Was A Set Up All Along

Strauss-Kahn Case Seen as Near Collapse

"France is truly stunned this morning and thrown into political uncertainty over reports that Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s accuser in an alleged hotel rape case appears to be unreliable.

The case against Mr. Strauss-Kahn, which caused him to resign as head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the midst of a European debt crisis and seemingly ended his bid for the French presidency, is “on the verge of collapse” according to a New York Times report citing a pair of "well-placed" law enforcement officials.

In France, senior political allies in the Socialist camp like Lionel Jospin and Jean-Marie Leguen immediately called for Strauss-Kahn’s “rehabilitation.” Strauss-Kahn's potential reentry into politics comes just as the field of presidential contenders is taking shape with the emergence of senior party leader François Hollande.

Some political figures called for a suspension of political primaries to allow Strauss-Kahn to speak out; one challenger from President Nicolas Sarkozy's own UMP party welcomed Strauss-Kahn back to the fight.

"This is like a thunderbolt, but it would be too early to bet on his return to politics,” said Mr. Jospin, a former prime minister and friend of Strauss-Kahn. After the gauntlet Strauss-Kahn has endured, and if charges are dropped, “it would first be up to him to decide about what to do. Then only will it be up to the Socialists and the Socialist leaders to make a decision. Honestly, it is too early to [speak on] this,” Jospin said."

It was obvious to me right from the start that this was a planned takedown. Just the slightest bit of digging showed that Strauss-Kahn posed so much of a threat to the dollar that empire came down on him like a ton of bricks. He also was the odds on favorite to force ziofascist darling Sarkozy from the French presidency.
But it was how they treated the guy that gave the game away. Throwing him in Rikers Island with the hard cases, making him do daily perp walks for the cameras - it was deliberate humiliation that you never, ever see men of his stature endure unless empire is out to ruin them.
Whoever was behind this screwed up royally. When Strauss-Kahn gets his bearings again, payback is going to be a real bitch.
