FSB New Report: DSK Arrested For Discovering that U.S. Had No Gold in Fort Knox Anymore
Another striking report of the Russian Federal Security Service, FSB, alleges that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was framed because he had discovered that the U.S. reserves of gold kept in Fort Knox, Kentucky, had disappeared and had been replaced with fake bars.
The allegation is so serious that the international press agencies were reluctant to publishing the material without further looking into it.
European Union Times published an extensive article about the report. It was linked by many websites, being also presented as a news by some television channels.
After reading report of the Federal Security Service, Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin posted on Russian governmental website a defense of DSK, in which the latter is presented as a victim of a U.S. conspiracy.
Putin is the highest-ranked politician to have voiced the concern that DSK may have been framed.
A French Socialist leader had said that Sarkozy and Putin were working together toward removing DSK from Sarkozy’s way to a second term in office.
Now, the new report of FSB shifts the focus on the American authorities, and makes a claim that, if proven beyond reasonable doubt as true, could cause an immense problem to the American authorities.
According to the FSB report, Strauss-Kahn grew suspicious as American authorities began to stall on their obligation to deliver 191.3 tones of gold they had agreed to deliver IMF under the Second Amendment of the Articles of Agreement signed in April 1978.
The gold was to be sold in order to fund what are called Special Drawing Rights, foreign exchange reserve assets used by IMF in dealing with its state members currencies.
DSK is said by the FSB report to have contacted American governmental officials at high levels, and that it was then that he was contacted by “rogue elements” of CIA who told him that the gold in Fort Knox was gone and that it had been replaced with fake bars.
When he found out about this, the report says, he wanted to leave the United States, especially since he was contacted by the people working for French General Directorate for External Security (DGSE), the French intelligence service, who told him he was wanted by the American authorities.
He followed the instructions of the French intelligence to leave the cell phone behind but once aboard the plane he made the mistake of asking for redirecting of calls, which was the moment the U.S. police was able to track him down and arrest him.
The report says that the same happened to a close friend of his, Egyptian banker Mahmoud Abdel Salam Omar, whom DSK contacted and called to the U.S. to retrieve the documents over the missing gold, and who was arrested on similar charges.
The idea that Fort Knox was empty and that no gold was there anymore has been entertained in the U.S. for quite a while now, especially by 2008 president hopeful Ron Paul, who even put forward a bill demanding an audit on the matter, without any serious response to it.11
