Argentina: Prosecutor set to expose President’s complicity with Iranians in Jewish Center bombing found shot dead

A special prosecutor who had accused Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of ordering impunity for Iranian suspects in the South American country’s worst terrorist attack was found shot dead in his bathroom, authorities said Monday.

Alberto Nisman, who was set to testify Monday in a closed-door hearing, was found in the bathroom of his Buenos Aires apartment late Sunday, federal prosecutor Viviana Fein told Telam, Argentina’s official news agency.

‘We can confirm that it was a gunshot wound, .22 caliber,’ she said, adding that it was too early in the investigation to know what had happened.

    Time for Kirchner to start talking about “Malvinas” to deflect attention from this.

  • Just a thought

    “I have evidence, which I will reveal …tomorrow, that ….(fill in the blank)…. is a criminal.”

    WHY DON’T THEY EVER LEARN? Just reveal it already, BEFORE they can take you out.

    You mean a politician is involved in a …SCANDAL???…I mean, upcoming scandal. I’m assuming the Argentinian government will bring in their very own version of Inspector Clouseau to solve the case.

    Well, as Tom Billesley said, time to invade that island again. Or, better yet, declare war on the former great britain and invade the Bahamas.

      Ms de Kirchner, who has repeatedly demanded sovereignty over the islands, has been negotiating with Russia’s President Putin to lease 12 long-range SU-24 supersonic, all-weather attack bombers.

      In 2013 the US joined a declaration by the Organisation of American States calling for negotiations between the UK and Argentina over the sovereignty of the Falklands.

      US delegates are expected to adopt the same posture when the OAS reconvenes in April.

      Canada was the only nation to support Britain’s clear sovereignty.

      Now Royal Navy commanders are providing additional air defence for the islands by deploying one of six revolutionary Daring-class destroyers.

    It’s surprising the number of suicides involving gun shots to the back of the head.

    • A remarkable coincidence.

        de Kirchner’s enemies seem to have used the same suicide method as Hillary’s.

    Kirchner has already told world financial markets that she’s defaulting on all global debt. She’s in bed, literally with Iran and Venezuela and the economy is starting to fly apart LIKE Venezuela’s with mass shortages of consumer goods because the currency is becoming worthless. And her remedy is to sit down with Thomas Piketty to discuss how to gouge more taxes out of the top quartile before they run screaming from the country in an exodus of capital not seen since 1991.

      Not familiar with Argentinian politics, but at one time, during the 1920s, Argentine had roughly the same per-capita GDP as Canada. But numerous dictators intervened in the economy in various, crazy ways, and we see the result today. Hollywood likes Argentinian dictators. They made a movie celebrating Eva Peron.

        Argentine life changed radically before the beginning of WW2. It’s economy never fully recovered from the Great Depression. During the 1930’s there were seemingly one coup after another while the economy rested on its relative laurels. After WW2 is was Peronism until 1966 then one military coup after another until 1983 and Alfonsin’ s government that while moderately successful it was unpopular. Then riots and Menem another unpopular statist, economic ruin, hyperinflation, more riots, two caretaker governments, more chaos. Then neo-Peronism with Nestor Kirchner who picked his wife to succeed him. In other words the glory days of Argentine first world status ended 85 years ago.

        • Everything needed for prosperity and economic stability exists in Argentina except for rule of law.
