Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who had investigated the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, was found dead from a bullet in the head the day he was to testify before the Argentine parliament to present his report that Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner had covered up for and protected Iran and its proxy Hezbollah, who were responsible for the terror attack, in exchange for oil contracts with Iran.

Obama administration intervened in Argentine probe of Iranian leader, Jewish center bombing

Special to WorldTribune.com

LONDON — The United States pressed Argentina to end its investigation of Iranian complicity in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in which nearly 100 people were killed.

Western diplomatic sources said the administration of President Barack Obama urged Argentina on several occasions to either stop or limit the investigation into the bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association in Buenos Aires. The sources said the U.S. appeals marked one of the demands by Iran for a reconciliation with Washington, Middle East Newsline reported.

“Argentina had hard evidence against at least one Iranian leader, which prevented him from traveling abroad,” a source said.

A key Iranian suspect was identified as Ali Akhbar Velayati, foreign minister from 1981 until 1987, and deemed close to supreme leader Ali Khamenei. Velayati has been on the official wanted list of Interpol since 2007 and a subject of an international arrest warrant by Argentina.

“One of the first demands by Iran to the administration was that Argentina be pressed to drop the warrant,” the source, close to the Argentine leadership, said. “Within months, the U.S. followed up with a high-level meeting in which Argentina was asked to lay off.”

The sources said Buenos Aires eventually complied. In 2013, Argentina and Iran signed an agreement for a joint investigation of the AMIA bombing, deemed a cover-up by Buenos Aires.

On Jan. 18, a leading Argentinian prosecutor assigned to investigate an alleged government cover-up on AMIA was found shot to death in his home. The prosecutor, Alberto Nisman, had been scheduled to appear in front of Congress and present evidence that President Cristina Kirchner and Foreign Minister Hector Timerman shielded Teheran in connection with the bombing.

“[They] took the criminal decision of inventing Iran’s innocence to satisfy commercial, political and geopolitical interests of the Argentine republic,” a 289-page report by Nisman said.

It was not clear whether the report contained evidence of U.S. intervention in the alleged plot to clear the Iranians. The 51-year-old Nisman, appointed in 2005, had presented evidence that Iran sponsored the bombing, conducted by its main proxy, Hizbullah.

On Jan. 21, the ranking Democrat of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Obama has become the leading defender of Iran. Sen. Robert Menendez suggested that the administration was coordinating with Teheran in efforts to block U.S. sanctions on Iran.

“The more I hear from the administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Iran,” Menendez said. “And it feeds to the Iranian narrative of victimization, when they’re the ones with original sin.”

For her part, Ms. Kirchner said Nisman was killed by opponents of the president. Earlier, officials asserted that Nisman committed suicide.

“I’m convinced that it was not suicide,” Ms. Kirchner said. “They used him when he was alive but then they needed him dead.”

AMIA Argentina attack: Mystery behind public prosecutor Nisman’s death
Mr. Nisman was supposed to be on holidays touring Europe with his 15-year-old daughter during all of this month of January. However, suddenly whilst visiting Amsterdam “somebody there” seems to have ordered him to fly back immediately to Argentina. So fast that he asked his wife to pick up their daughter at Madrid Airport where he dropped her off and flew on to Buenos Aires.

Upon arriving, he produced out of his hat as if by magic, a 350 page dossier case accusing President Kirchner and her (also Jewish) Foreign Minister Hector Timerman of “covering-up” Iran. He was about to present this during a special emergency summer session in Argentina’s Congress at 3pm on Monday, January 19, but he may have realized that his case was still-born and had no chance whatsoever of holding up.

Anyway - alas! - he (or “somebody”) conveniently killed him sometime early Sunday, January 18.

Nisman’s case and the ensuing cross-questioning would have probably thrown the whole AMIA/DAIA investigation back to square one. For a second time, as already happened in 2003 when the case for a“Syrian connection” fell completely through ending up with the prosecution of Juan Galeano, the former federal judge hearing the case, and where even one of DAIA’s former presidents - Ruben Beraja - ended up in jail for helping to bribe a shady car-dealer by the name of Carlos Telleldin to the tune of $400,000, so that he would incriminate the Buenos Aires Police which was supposed to produce a false lead, in turn leading back to the elusive “car bomb.”

That “car bomb” was never found save for a small bit of metal of a van engine “found” by an Israeli military intelligence officer “helping out” in the AMIA building rubble right after the 18th July 1994 bombing which, “luckily” had the vehicle serial number on it.

Sounds a bit like Mohammed Atta’s intact passport “found” in the WTC rubble? Or maybe the masked Charlie Hebdo terrorist’s dropping his ID card in Paris a couple of weeks ago?
