The IMF, Strauss-Kahn and the CIA

  • on: May 25, 2011, 02:52:55 PM
In case you wondered about those news about Mr. Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, of French nationality and having been arrested in NYC, and in case you wondered whether it was a conspiracy or not to blame him for attempted rape of a hotel maid (and temporarily replace him then by an American). Some interesting statements.

Ex-CIA PR Firm Crafts Strauss-Kahn's Comeback Strategy
Courtney Comstock | May 23, 2011, 5:10 PM | 891 | comment 7

Dominique Strauss-Kahn's defense strategy is being intensely speculated about now that he is out on bail.

Of course through his lawyer, he is denying all charges of attempted rape, but now there are some more specifics detailing how he might back up those claims.

A Yahoo blog, the Envoy, heard from a source a French source involved in past French Socialist campaigns that DSK's new PR strategy might include methods such as:

    * Attacking the credibility of the 32-year-old West African-born hotel maid
    * Contending that any sexual activity was consensual
    * Playing up Muslim and Jewish tensions (the maid is reportedly Muslim, and Strauss-Kahn is Jewish)

And the former IMF chief is now informally working with a Washington-based PR firm founded by former CIA officers, says Reuters.

The fact that he's consulting with former CIA agents might ignite speculation that DSK believes there is a plot against him (like he suggested to the French magazine Liberation a month ago). However Reuters says that DSK's dealings with the PR firm are informal.

The company, TD International, has done business with DSK in the past. It is the same PR company that DSK hired in 2007 when he made a push to become head of the IMF. It was founded by William Green, a former CIA agent.

DSK's representatives are said to have contacted the firm after his arrest last weekend, merely to ask for advice.

DSK Will Get At Least $250,000 Per Year For Life From The IMF*
Courtney Comstock | May 19, 2011, 4:52 PM | 1,466 | comment 13

UPDATE: A spokesman for the IMF says we have grossly over-exaggerated the amount Kahn will receive. The number looks about right to us (assuming that DSK doesn't work again), based on his contract with the IMF. FYI, we got $250,000 from CNBC, which cited something said in court yesterday.

Add this to the reasons DSK life was fabulous:

He will get at least $250,000 per year as part of his contract. The details of his IMF compensation contract emerged in DSK's court hearing today, where he was indicted and granted bail (he will be released tomorrow).

These pay terms were in his original contract.

The IMF says it is contractually obliged to pay the pension now that he is resigned.

The Fabulous Life Of Dominique Strauss-Kahn (Before He Was Arrested)
 DSK's riches come from a couple of places:

    * A series of well-paying jobs: Deputy Commissioner of the Economic Planning Agency; Deputy (Member of Parliament) to the National Assembly; Minister of Industry and International Trade; corporate lawyer; economics professor at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris; member of the French National Assembly; visiting professor at Stanford; personal advisor to the Secretary General of the OECD; Minister of Economy, Finance and Industry of France (he managed the launch of the Euro).
    * The IMF: $420,930 in tax free salary from the IMF. (Plus $75,350 as a "cost of living" supplement from the IMF.)
    * His wife: Anne Sinclair is the granddaughter of Paul Rosenberg, a famous art dealer who had represented Picasso, for example. His (now part of it is Sinclair's) collection is rumored to have paintings stolen by the Nazis.

Former IMF Worker Describes The Situation For Women At The IMF: "It's Sort Of Like Pirates Of The Caribbean"
Katya Wachtel | May 20, 2011, 2:41 PM | 1,363 | comment 2

A former IMF economists compared the sitation to Pirates of the Caribbean. Eek.
With the arrest of former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn this week, it's not just the man himself that's been thrown under a very uncomplimentary spotlight.

The IMF as an organization is now being harshly scrutinized.

Does it ignore complaints about sexual intimidation?

If DSK is guilty of the sex crimes of which he's accused, can the IMF's (alleged) laissez-faire attitude to harassment be blamed at all?

According to the New York Times, women who have worked for the IMF said it's a place "whose sexual norms and customs are markedly different from those of Washington, leaving its female employees vulnerable to harassment."

One of the IMF's former economists, a woman called Carmen Reinhart compared the situation to everyone's favorite buccaneer flick, 'Pirates of the Caribbean.'

"The IMF is "sort of like ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’; the rules are more like guidelines. That sets the stage, I think, for more risk-taking," she said.

And apparently,

Some women avoid wearing skirts for fear of attracting unwanted attention. Others trade whispered tips about overly forward bosses.

A 2008 internal review found few restraints on the conduct of senior managers, concluding that “the absence of public ethics scandals seems to be more a consequence of luck than good planning and action."

(We thought we should point out that we believe that the IMF isn't the only institution in which women wouldn't wear tight clothing to avoid wolf-whistling and the like. Not that that makes it excusable, we're just saying -- that would be a widespread practice across the corporate world).

The examples of overlooking harassment were:

    * In 2007 the IMF refused to look into a complaint by an administrative assistant who'd slept with her supervisor. She said he'd given her bad performance reviews to "pressure her to continue the relationship."
    * In 2009, the IMF didn't take action after a woman complained that a senior manager had been sending her sexually explicit emails.

The IMF said that that type of negligence doesn't happen anymore and they've changed their policies to make sure of that.

In an email, IMF spokesman, William Murray, said of the Times' portrayal, "This is not the Fund we know and work in. Is it a perfect place? No. But this report creates an impression of institutionalized harassment and disrespect. That is not the case. Harassment is not tolerated in the institution."

That was backed up by the former director of the fiscal affairs department, Teresa Ter-Minassian, who had worked there for almost 40 years. She said she'd never once experienced harassment.

This news stinks from the moment it broke. I know some French people who were 'not amused' since Strauss-Kahn was very likely going to be the next president of France, they told me he was very popular. I don't know what kind of person he is and if he did it or not, but he has been condemned by the media and thus public already, reminds me of someone...

It looks more like a set up to me but it's just a feeling.
He wouldn't realise it's a trap and he's is such a high position?

Because if so he doesn't deserve that position....maybe he needs more training in "hoaxing" suspicious//

Whether or not you are a good person or not, you shouldn't be accused of crimes you didn't commit, you should be charged only with the crimes you did commit. Now they do it to one of their own, tomorrow they will do the same to an innocent person that was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
