Intercepted conversations between representatives of the Iranian and Argentine governments point to a long pattern of secret negotiations to reach a deal in which Argentina would receive oil in exchange for shielding Iranian officials from charges that they orchestrated the bombing of a Jewish community center in 1994.
The transcripts were made public by an Argentine judge on Tuesday night, as part of a 289-page criminal complaint written by Alberto Nisman, the special prosecutor investigating the attack. Mr. Nisman was found dead in his luxury apartment on Sunday, the night before he was to present his findings to Congress.
In one transcript from 2013, an Argentine union leader and influential supporter of Mrs. Kirchner said he was acting on the orders of the boss woman, adding that the government was open to sending a team from the national oil company to advance the negotiations.
Another intercept shows negotiators talking about ways to place blame for the bombing on right-wing groups and activists.
Yet another transcript includes a discussion about swapping not just Argentine grains, but weapons as well, for Iranian oil.
Mr. Nisman asserted for years that Iran had helped plan and finance the bombing, and that its Lebanese ally, the militant group Hezbollah, had carried it out. His body was found at his apartment on Sunday with a gunshot wound to his head in a murky episode that government officials have called a suicide. An investigation by a prosecutor is underway.
Some experts, including a former American F.B.I. agent who helped the Argentines in their investigation, have questioned the claims of direct Iranian involvement in the bombing.

Well blacks in our country have been sticking with the party of slavery in exchange for government jobs and welfare for 60 years, so why not Iran paying off Argentina?
The murder of Marines, Americans and Jews
is EXACTLY why Obola has given Iran more
than 10 billion tax dollars.
Sooooooo, the Iranians have put the fear of God.....errr....Allan in Obama and his negotiating crew. Surprise surprise.
Allan = Allah
Well, it wasn’t the Jews who fled to Argentina after WWII.

The NY Times ran this? wow!
I am surprised the NY Times would run this story
And in today’s news:
Argentine President Now Says Prosecutors Death Was Not a Suicide
Allan is fine by me.
Yeah, sure. Why not!
Let's blame it on those old WWII Third Reich Nazis (the ones still living) who fled to Argentina after the war. They did it. A group of 80 to 90+ year old Nazi men did it.
Or maybe a secret powerful group of Christian, capitalist, white supremacists did it. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Somebody somewhere is bound to be stupid enough to believe one of the stories. The Left Wing media as usual will help to promote the stories.
Allan Snackbar. I like it!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Argentina has always been receptive of nazis. islamists represent their latest incarnation.
