More doubts emerge about the supposed suicide.
Sunday night Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found shot to death in his apartment. Nisman had been scheduled the following day to present his criminal complaint against Argentinian President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner before a closed session of Argentinas congress.
The initial claim (one made by Kirchner herself on her Facebook page) that Nisman committed suicide hardly seemed credible at the time. How many people would kill themselves before the high point of their careers? Nisman had spent ten years investigating the 1994 AMIA Jewish center bombing in Buenos Aires and now he was about to charge the president and other officials of his country with conspiring to cover up the Iranian involvement in that attack. (Now Kirchner says he was killed but suggests that Nisman was murdered on the instructions of his foreign masters in order to create a scandal damaging to her and to her government.)
Subsequent revelations during the week have made the claim of suicide even less credible now. At Business Insider, Armin Rosen recounted some of those revelations.
The lack of an exit wound suggested the fatal shot was fired at a further distance than Nisman could have managed had the wound been self-inflicted. His last WhatsApp was a photo of stacks of documentation related to the next days testimony and Nisman had apparently given his maid a grocery list for the following week. A 10-person government security detail was reportedly pulled off of his apartment the night of his assassination. Most damningly, there was no gunpowder residue found on Nismans hands, physical evidence that he didnt discharge a firearm prior to his death.

Remember how Putin was so quick to blame others when that Malaysian airliner was shot down?
Like the old bumper sticker said, “Different day, same BS”
The government of Argentina now admits it was not a suicide.
hopefully this can bring down the commies in Buenos Aires
This is the country that was once under the sway of Evita Peron, was it not? The Argentine has not had a decent democratic representative government for the most part of a century, if not longer.
Example of Progressivism gone to full cycle.
What? Is there is no Fort Marcy park in Buenos Aires?
Hmmn - could William Jefferson Clinton be a closeted Latrino? ‘Nuff Arkancides to qualify, for sure.
It’s not curious at all. It’s obvious.
Death By Crossing the Boss Woman.
From the article:
Nismans work on the AMIA case was invaluable in documenting Irans efforts to build a terror infrastructure in South America. Matt Levitt, an expert on Hezbollah, who recently published a book about the Iran-backed terror organization, wrote this week, As I was writing my book, trying to navigate the convoluted details of the AMIA bombing and other Hezbollah plots, Nisman was an invaluable resource.
Isn’t it adorable how South American nations act like they’re progressive emerging powers of the 21st Century and not stifled totalitarian kleptocracies run by juntas that liquidate all who oppose them?
The lack of an exit wound suggested the fatal shot was fired at a further distance than Nisman could have managed had the wound been self-inflicted. His last WhatsApp was a photo of stacks of documentation related to the next day's testimony and Nisman had apparently given his maid a grocery list for the following week. A 10-person government security detail was reportedly pulled off of his apartment the night of his assassination. Most damningly, there was no gunpowder residue found on Nisman's hands, physical evidence that he didn't discharge a firearm prior to his death.Based on that paragraph from the article, not only was this a hit by the Iranian mullahcracy, the regime in Argentina knew about it in advance and made sure it went off without a hitch.
Nismans findings were so powerful he was called to testify before the U.S. Congress, but he was undercut by Kirchners widow, now President Cristina Fernandez, whose minions said such testimony wasnt part of his official duties. They managed to silence him before he could speak and not for the last time.
Back in Buenos Aires, Nisman found that there was a reason Fernandez didnt want the truth to get out about Hezbollah in our hemisphere: She made a deal with Iran to allow their killers all in high-ranking positions in Iran to walk free, in exchange for a trade deal to buy Iranian oil in exchange for sales of Argentinian grain.
Drudge has up on his website that the reporter who found him has fled the country.
I saw that, very interesting.
