It looks like all plans to run for President of France have been dashed for Dominique Strauss-Kahn who is now head of the International Monetary Fund. He has been arrested amid charges of a sexual assault of a hotel maid in his room. Mr Strauss-Kahn was removed from an airplane he had quickly boarded after the incident. He had fled his hotel room without his cell phone as well as personal belongings. Do honest men run from a crime scene? Is this story correct?
This is not the first unflattering incident for Dominique. It seems unbelievable that a man in a highly visible position would throw it all away for a forceful sexual encounter.

Important Cable Releases by Wikileaks
Days 1 – 6
The Drip, Drip, Drip of Wikileaks
This is a composite of the most important information that was released by Wikileaks to various news outlets. This references Days 1 – 6 by the UK’s Guardian. Of the reported 250,000 downloaded cables, only a fraction have been released. These serve as insight into our government’s relationships with other countries. They also may permanently damage our image throughout the world, highlight our inability to maintain our secret documents, and otherwise inhibit a trusting relationship with many countries. This doesn’t cover the danger that those who divulged their opinions ” in secret” may now face in the countries they represent.

The French President is now reported to be questioning President Obama’s sanity? Quite interesting to hear this. A maxi drama ?
There is one bit Leza found and we had planned to post it but both found our fruit had a worm, or a few. I guess now I am adding to readers to be so careful as you find bits on this story.
Keep this one updated please Leza. I thought they would get along, silly me. I do not like worms in fruit. That Michael Jackson song comes to mind about the one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch girl….
Things really are getting crazy !
