- the Theory of All of France (TOAOF), that the whole thing was a set-up intended to remove Strauss-Kahn from leading the IMF at such a delicate time, and preventing him from taking over from Sarko in the French elections; or
- the Dershowitz Protocol (DP), paying off the overseas family of the victim so she would find a way to impugn her own evidence.
The third conspiracy theory is the microsurgery of removing Strauss-Kahn from the IMF, freeing him by having the case thrown out with credibility issues, and then allowing him to go on to beat Sarko. Too complicated and prone to failure, but the fact that the American authorities have done a 180 on their zeal for prosecution makes one wonder.
Remember that Strauss-Kahn phoned his lawyer, and then presumably on legal advice made a bee-line for the airport to flee the jurisdiction, and would have escaped had he not phoned back to the hotel for his cell phone, thus identifying his location to the authorities.
