Claim: New Panel Will Report that Argentine Prosecutor, Found Dead During Probe Into 1994 Terrorist Bombing, Was Murdered
— Ace

Here's the background:

1n 1994, a Jewish center in Buenos Aires was bombed, killing 85. Iranian agents were suspected of being behind the attack -- but no prosecutions were ever brought.

In 2015, Alberto Nisman was conducting a special investigation into the unsolved terrorist bombing case. He planned to bring a complaint against then-President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and other Argentinian politicians of covering up the bombing on behalf of Tehran.

One day before he was due to make his complaint, he was found dead.

Claims were that it was a suicide, but a lot of people were suspicious about the convenient timing -- it was almost as if Alberto Nisman wanted to exit this earth at the precise moment people not named Alberto Nisman wanted Alberto Nisman to exit this earth.

A forthcoming report -- not yet published, so we don't know if this is all true yet -- will declare the death a murder.


A team of investigators appointed by the Kirchner government concluded -- following a controversial investigation that was heavily criticized by Nisman’s family -- that the special prosecutor committed suicide using a gun supplied to him by Diego Lagomarsino, a computer specialist employed by Nisman.

But a new report from the Gendarmeria, a federal security force, will put the suicide theory to bed once and for all and show that Nisman was murdered, according to Argentine news outlets. The report's publication is expected within the next thirty days, the Clarin newspaper said.

In the photo that runs with the story, one protester is holding a sign that reads "85 + 1 = 86," saying, I presume, that Alberto Nisman was the 86th casualty of the 1994 bombing.

Which was probably perpetrated by agents of Iran.

Oh, also in 2015, Obama gave Iran the go-ahead to build a nuclear bomb and $140 billion dollars.

Oh: And Kircher claimed at a UN speech that, in 2010, a former aide to Obama asked her to provide nuclear fuel to Iran.

During a 45-minute speech, Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner claimed that in 2010 a former Obama administration official asked Argentina to "provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel" under the control of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

According to Kirchner, Gary Samone, who was the White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction at the time, visited Argentina in the hopes of convincing them to provide reactor fuel. When the Argentine Minister of Foreign Affairs asked for the request in writing, they never heard from Samone again.

There is a backstory to this, as Kirchner explained. In 1987, Argentina supplied Iran with nuclear fuel for their "Teheran" reactor. Samone told Hector Timmerman, the Argentine Foreign Minister, that negotiations with Iran to end or limit its nuclear enrichment program had begun and that the "Teheran" reactor was a sticking point. Iranian negotiators wouldn’t go forward without the fuel. And Argentina was the United States’ answer.

By the way, Debbie Wasserman Schultz's brother is an Assistant US Attorney in DC, and there is speculation he's part of the reason the investigation is dead.

29 From the Forbes link: Adding to the mystery, investigators also found that someone logged onto Nisman's computer in the hours after his murder but before his mother discovered his body the following morning. That oughta have raised eyebrows.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at May 30, 2017 12:15 PM (gIRsn)

30 I don't think there was ever more than a vanishingly small chance that Nisman's death was a suicide.

And yes ace the indefensible and insane Iran policy was appeasement of a regime that has been at war with much of the world for decades.

Pet theory is that soley because 1979, which framed most Americans' views of the Iran regime for decades, had faded enough due to generational turnover that the disastrous Obama policy could even be considered.  Otherwise there would have been a political firestorm of opposition.

34 "a senate candidates sealed divorce records got leaked," Nerdish point of order, because it's actually worse. It was a child custody proceeding in CA. Jack Ryan's wife was shtupping her Star Trek producer. So she embellished some stories. Records were released by a D judge in CA over the objections of father, mother and child (which is unheard of). Jerri Ryan actually endorsed Jack during the election, but that got washed out because MSM couldn't resist printing pictures of her bodacious Ta Tas. Axelrod has as much as admitted that he got his old cronies at the Chicago Tribune to be the front to make it happen. What sunk Jack Ryan was that he had a Boy Scout reputation. What saved Trump during Pussygate was that we already knew that he had been a pussy hound.

I explain Roberts flip-flop in the OCare with these alternatives: 1) he wanted a sixth vote and couldn't get it, and was worried about blowback on SCOTUS if it were a 5-4 vote on political lines. 2) Obama made a public "nice court you got there" threat. This adds to #1. Obama may have threatened more in private or through surrogates. 3) Someone hit Roberts with the "nice Guatemalan twins you got there" threat. "Why do they look like they're from County Kerry?" I put most weight on #2. Roberts said to himself "it's political." Let Congress sort it out.

81 I still am gobsmacked by HClinton's boast about '17 intelligence agencies' and can't for the life of me figure out how or why they have that much power, much less exist. Everyone repeats that as if it were so. Do we really have 17 intelligence agencies? If we do, because somehow each fills a specialized need, why would all 17 look at Russian influence on the election?

Considering how many billions of dollars floats around in American politics and the geopolitical significance of who's in power, the idea that there are assassains and blackmail extortionists at play seems pretty reasonable to me.

88 "So Ignoramus, you are saying Roberts is a small personality who also doesn't understand his job nor that of the institution he heads?" He has no balls. Scalia and Thomas have balls. They wouldn't have backed down were they in Roberts position. The Irish adoption thing shouldn't have been enough to get Roberts to fold. He could have ridden that through. Instead, my belief was that he put the institutional interests of SCOTUS first.

93 "I marvel at the optimism of those who think implausible blackmail scenarios are required to explain the behavior of the microscopic midget personalities infesting the top rungs of power, like Roberts or Kennedy or Comey."

The behavior of Roberts in the ACA case isn't that of a judge who had reasoned it out well in advance that the Court should punt, and then carefully built a Potemkin-village legal facade around that cynical stance.

Instead, there was the truly weird spectacle of the majority opinion being hastily rewritten under severe deadline pressure at literally the last possible minute, due to Roberts abruptly switching sides.

Why? We don't, and may never, know. But that he did so is incontrovertible.

Plus, there's no threat to SCOTUS - their lawless behavior has not produced a hint of a murmur of a rumor that anything will be done about it (congressional action or executive repudiation).  They are, contrary to the most basic intent of the constitution, beyond account or retaliation, however lawless and ridiculous they are.

And yes everyone can continue to conjure their implausible blackmail fantasies to explain what is easily understood from obvious or very likely (or even known) factors, but it just distracts from confronting how grim reality actually is.

140 "was John Roberts known as a constitutional conservative before he got the job?" Roberts had been carefully cultivated to go on SCOTUS after a short stint on the DC Appeals Court. No controversial cases there, like anything on abortion. Boring shit mostly. But he was supposed to be a stealth conservative. And he has been, mostly, but because he was never tested at the appellate level, his lack of balls wasn't known. Which matters on the big stuff. And he's never found a way to keep Kennedy on plantation.

154 No, Roberts most certainly *is* a dumbass.  His words speak for themselves, they don't come with secret codicils and explanations.

And a coward.  But mostly a dumbass.  He doesn't understand his job, or that of his institution (in fairness, it seems few do, any longer).  As it's actually not a complicated concept, he rates "dumbass" for not getting it.

Adding to the dumb theme, anyone who felt "pressure" (while in an untouchable unaccountable position more like a high Soviet party official's spot than anything remotely American or constitutional), in favor of a wildly unpopular policy, isn't very sharp.  O-care being nuked as it should have been at the outset would have meant political disaster for Obama, and nothing at all for the court.  Gotta be pretty dumb to spend more than a month in DC and not know that.

165 yeah, but were they really unusual purchases? Were they attempts to restock depleted reserves? Purchases to pad a budget at the end of the year?

Isn't that the point?  Why.

168 1/ I caption this "there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his...wherever" Also @tylershields great Photog/film maker. --- Knowing that Trump is the most hated kind of male who knows he's a man and enjoys being a man, it's neat that they're now openly acknowledging that Trump's statement had nothing to do with menopause.

171 It's a strange thing, buy Alex Jones gets proved right a lot eventually. I'm still waiting for the Alien proof though, but it will come out. Eventually.

172 129 I saw it on Infowars, so you know that has to be true. Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at May 30, 2017 06:00 PM (6Ll1u) Like satire, Infowars is struggling to keep up with reality lately.

Posted by: Colorado Alex in Exile at May 30, 2017 06:14 PM (f73eO) --- If you're not an armed department then yes, the purchases were unusual. I'd certainly like to find out more about padding budgets or re-stocking for other departments, though.

174 25 What if, and Im just spitballin' here, a senate candidates sealed divorce records got leaked, spilling allegations of sexual impropriety just prior to election- nah, too far-fetched ad banana republic. Posted by: Farmer Bob at May 30, 2017 05:14 PM (sqpGi) That still frosts me. The dirty shenanigans were rampant from the beginning with that SCoaMT.

175 "Which was probably perpetrated by agents of Iran." I would think it was perpetrated by agents of the left-wing government in Argentina Countries don't usually whack each others' prosecutors. Prosecutors get whacked by their own governments.

178 About the total of U.S. intelligence agencies, I don't know that it's 17, but I wouldn't be surprised. Off the top of my head: CIA FBI (counterintelligence) NSA (Hi, Bob!) National Reconnaissance Office (spy satellites) DEA Secret Service State Dept. (Bureau of Intelligence and Research, often shortened to INR) Army intelligence Navy intelligence Air Force intelligence There's 10, right there. Can anybody add more?
