Did U.S. 'Frame' Strauss-Kahn Over IMF Economic Forecasts? (Huanqiu, People's Republic of China)

From All Voices

With this article, Beijing has raised the bar on Dominique Strauss-Kahn conspiracy theories. According to this analysis from China's state-controlled Huanqiu, it is reasonable to infer that statistics released while DSK ran the IMF, showing U.S. dollar weakness and forecasting how China's economy would surpass America's by 2016, drove Washington to 'throw' DSK into a U.S. prison...

"At the time [May, 2010], the IMF's sudden forecast was equivalent to sounding the global alarm on the U.S. dollar, or to put it another way, using data to reveal the trend of influence between the U.S. and China. In order to maintain the status of the U.S. dollar, Washington moved to take revenge on Strauss-Kahn. It is fairly safe to infer that by throwing DSK - a man who dared speak the truth - into the prisons of their country, there has been an attempt to keep his mouth shut. Meanwhile, this also dealt a heavy blow to French Socialist Party prospects in the 2012 presidential election, making it far easier for the U.S. to cultivate a "loyal" French government. With this smear in place and DSK's image fatally ruined, IMF forecasts made under his management will also be looked on with suspicion."
