DSK: no-one to blame but himself

The French press rejoices this morning at Dominique Strauss-Kahn's release in New York - even though they seem to have forgotten dropping the charges does not mean he has actually been cleared. Many in the papers rush to defend him - while others point out that if his career and reputation have been left in shatters, he has no-one to blame but himself.

Le Parisien declares that Dominique Strauss-Kahn cleared and is quick to welcome him back to French politics.

Liberation is less hasty: it reminds us that there are at least two court cases still pending against him.

Le Figaro says that the ongoing suspicion hanging over his head means that his career is effectively over, so his return will not affect the French presidential election.

And Le Monde points out that if his career and reputation have been destroyed, he has only himself to blame.
