It must be said that Strauss-Kahn’s latest speeches probably did not sit well with Wall Street’s bankers: “Human Development and Wealth Distribution”. Especially when the IMF is or was in the process of replacing the American dollar as the international currency with IMF's Special Drawing Rights, as indicated in The Telegraph on February 10: “International Monetary Fund director Dominique Strauss-Kahn calls for new world currency”.
The French believe at 57% that Dominique Strauss Kahn is the victim of a plot, as indicated in this review of the French press: “IMF Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s charges: the French believe it’s a plot”. The French mass media does not appear to have made the link with the case of Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar yet, the news has been given a low profile.
What has been given more visibility in France is what the Daily Mail reports in an article dated May 20: “Strauss-Kahn believes he was victim of Russian plot to have him sacked as head of IMF, French politician reveals”. It comes amid another report from the Daily Mail dated 31 May: “Vladimir Putin claims Dominique Strauss-Kahn is the victim of a conspiracy to force him out”. In that same vein this article rated as propaganda and disinformation by many has been circulating the net: “Russia Says IMF Chief Jailed For Discovering All US Gold Is Gone”.As a commentator stated on a forum, maybe it is a case of: “Two bankers down thousands to go. Bring on the maids. They're doing a better job than the SEC and the Justice Department”.
