International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn was pulled from an airplane moments before it was supposed to depart and was being questioned Saturday night regarding a sexual assault against a hotel maid. Strauss-Kahn, a likely French presidential candidate, was removed from the first-class section of a Paris-bound Air France flight at JFK airport in New York and was taken into custody. He has not been charged but formal charges are expected to be filed Sunday morning. “He is being arrested for a criminal sex act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment,” according to a New York Police Department spokesman.


Europeans are so sophisticated…  Tengu


About Tokyo Tengu

I'm a 58-year-old lovable fuzzball that enjoys spending time (when not working) reading and writing political commentary, enjoying good books, cooking, eating and bashing stupidity whenever and wherever I find it. (Not that I have to look very hard these days.) Despite being a long-term (25 years) resident of Tokyo, I am an unashamed and unabashedly Pro-Life American Conservative with an intense interest in the politics of the day -- in Japan, the United States and throughout Asia. My writings here and in other places focus primarily on how things are seen from Japan and around Asia, with special emphasis on Japanese national, political and defense issues, US Forces in Japan and Asia, and the burgeoning military power of China.
