Murder Most Foul -To Protect Iran And Argentina's Corrupt President
Argentinian Federal Prosecutor Alberto Nissim was a dedicated and brave man, who was in charge of investigating the 1994 terror bombing at a Jewish community center in Buenos Ares that killed 85 people.
In 2007, Nisman issued a report that clearly showed that the bombing had been carried out by Iran and its Hezbollah surrogates. It made the case strongly enough that Interpol issued "red notices"—arrest requests—for five Iranian officials who still remain free today.
Nisman had continued to work on the case and provide more details, especially on the connections between Iran and Argentina's government and their joint efforts at a cover up. Just last year, Nisman was able to get an Argentine federal court to declare the 2013 agreement between Argentina and Iran to establish a joint "truth commission" to investigate the Jewish community center bombing unconstitutional.
Just last week, Nisman had filed a lawsuit accusing President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and Foreign Minister Hector Timerman of colluding with the Iranians in a cover up of the bombing for the quid pro quo of Iranian oil and personal bribes. A lot of the evidence reportedly came from phone calls between Kirchner's aides and Mohsen Rabbani, the former cultural attaché at Iran’s embassy in Buenos Aires and one of the Iranians subject to those Interpol arrest warrants.
Today Nisman was found dead in his apartment of a single gunshot wound, just hours before he was scheduled to testify in a closed hearing to the Argentinian Congress regarding his investigation of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s corrupt dealings with Iran.
A .22 pistol and a single shell casing were found in the bathroom next to the body, Although Nisman was supposedly under the protection of a ten man security team, none of them heard or saw anything - and of course, Argentine Security Secretary Sergio Berni quickly came out with a statement that 'all signs point towards suicide.'
Yes..just hours before he was supposed to present evidence to Argentina's congress on a case he'd worked on for years.His death is a major coup for Iran, not just because of the 1994 bombing but because of the loss Nisman's first hand knowledge of Iran and Hezbollah's penetration into Latin America.
And this Iranian regime, these murderers is whom President Obama wants us to get close to?
