Skip to comments.Did the Argentine Government Kill Alberto Nisman? [There was a warrant to arrest the President]

Well, the only other prime suspects are the Iranians, so you figure it out:
Alberto Nisman, the prosecutor whose mysterious death has gripped Argentina, had drafted a warrant for the arrest of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, accusing her of trying to shield Iranian officials from responsibility in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center here, the lead investigator into his death said on Tuesday.
The 26-page document, which was found in the garbage at Mr. Nismans apartment, also requested the arrest of Héctor Timerman, Argentinas foreign minister. Both Mrs. Kirchner and Mr. Timerman have repeatedly denied Mr. Nismans accusation that they tried to reach a secret deal with Iran to lift international arrest warrants for Iranian officials wanted in connection with the bombing.
The new revelation that Mr. Nisman had drafted arrest warrants for the president and the foreign minister further illustrates the heightened tensions between him and the government before he was found dead on Jan. 18 at his apartment with a gunshot wound to his head. He had been scheduled the next day to provide details before Congress about his accusations against Mrs. Kirchner.
The first question cops ask about a case like this is qui bono? Who benefits? Not too hard to figure this one out, given the level of corruption surrounding the current government in Buenos Aires:
It would have provoked a crisis without precedents in Argentina, said Sergio Berensztein, a political analyst, about the impact of the warrants if they had been issued. He acknowledged that previous legal cases had shaken Argentinas political establishment, but he emphasized that this case involved a request to arrest a sitting president.
It would have been a scandal on a level previously unseen, Mr. Berensztein said.
Mrs. Kirchner, who is on a visit to China, issued a stream of updates on Twitter about strengthening ties between Buenos Aires and Beijing but did not comment immediately on the confirmation that Mr. Nisman had considered seeking her arrest. She and the foreign minister have previously pointed to statements by Interpol’s former director that the Argentine government did not lobby it to lift the Iranian arrest warrants.
Argentina — a banana republic minus the bananas. Except those in power, of course.
isn’t that almost certain?
Does the Obama Government go after anyone who gets publically close to the truth of his efforts?
Does he force his agencies to hound, mistreat, target and illegally undermine his detractors?
Has he redirected his agencies’ focus to home grown US Citizen malcontents instead of the Islamist Terrorist plague about which he won’t even utter?
Is the President a prayer rugging Muslim?
That one is no longer a rhetorical question?
Cristina: We’ve got a problem with Nisman.
Argentine minister of stuff: We’ll handle it.
Argentine minister of stuff: We’ve got a problem with Nisman.
Iranian spook: We’ll handle it.
“Don’t cry for me, Argentina.”
