    Why would he commit suicide just before such and important court case? Seems there is a lot of division about whether it's truly a suicide. While some are hasty to rule it a suicide, others claim it was an assassination. Several prominent Argentinian figures had been implicated by Alberto Nisman.

    This is sounding more and more suspicious. Nisman borrowed a gun because he didn't trust LE to protect him. With good reason, maybe.

    It looks extremely suspicious as arrest warrant was drafted. However judge dismissed the case against president Fernandez de Kirschner which seems to exonerate her.

    BREAKING: Draft of Arrest Warrant for Argentine President Found at Dead Prosecutor’s Home.
    http://t.co/cpGT3pkE6R http://t.co/uds1w1imTg

    An Argentinian judge has refused to pursue allegations that president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner conspired with Iran to cover up the nation’s deadliest terrorist attack – raising the prospect of the case dying along with the prosecutor who presented it.

    There is no shortage of corruption in Argentina.

    About a year ago I was in Buenos Aires and Cristina was finally back in town from holiday, to give a major speech. (She had been absent for months, even though the country was in economic crisis.) There were hundreds (literally) of buses lining the downtown streets. They had brought rural folks from outside the city to a cheering rally for Cristina. Our hosts told us that these people were generally unemployed and were paid to come to the city, provided food, etc. The crowds were very large and they brought the city to a standstill. It was an incredible sight to see.

    Giving money and food to the poor is a nice gesture, but using money and food to entice the poor and hungry to appear as supporters ..... isn't that kind of like tying a steak around your neck to get the dog to play with you? :waitasec: :beagle:


    I'm really not surprised that more continues to be revealed about the whole ordeal. I think someone had Nisman assassinated because of what he was about to expose in court. And, I think whoever's behind it will eventually realize that assassinating Nisman will only lead to their downfall because now Argentina is an open stage playing before the entire world. Everything will fall into place piece by piece, and there will be no hiding it since all eyes are on Argentina. I don't care how many bigwigs are involved: they are going to start tumbling like dominoes. JMO

    Draft of Arrest Request for Argentine President Found at Dead Prosecutor’s Home

    <snip> The 26-page document, which was found in the garbage at Mr. Nisman’s apartment, also sought the arrest of Héctor Timerman, Argentina’s foreign minister.

    <snip> Normally, a prosecutor in Argentina seeks an arrest out of concern that the people charged with crimes will try to corrupt the investigation or flee the country, according to Susana Ciruzzi, a professor of criminal law at the University of Buenos Aires who knew Mr. Nisman.

    But in this case, some legal experts suspect that Mr. Nisman decided against requesting the arrest of Mrs. Kirchner because such a move would have been viewed as a political attack on the president in a case that has already polarized the nation.

    <snip>
    Legal experts emphasized that the draft found in Mr. Nisman’s apartment was not valid in an Argentine court of law, and needed more than just the prosecutor’s wishes to move forward in the legal system.

    “It is not signed; it is a draft,” said María del Carmen Besteiro, head of the Buenos Aires Association of Lawyers. “Nisman was a prosecutor. The one who has to make the accusation and who has to decide it is a judge.”

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/04/w...sman-arrest-warrant-cristina-de-kirchner.html


    If Nisman had tossed the draft in the trash, makes me wonder, was someone unduly worried about the evidence Nisman would present in court and the recommendations he would make? Again, I think someone has caused more damage to their own reputations, political careers, and ultimate freedom than Nisman would have.

    "I might get out of this dead" -- great case, one with the classic question "How far will this go? attached.

    There is probably more corruption and mismanagement than anyone can handle in all over Latin America.

    Didn't Kirschner claim she had cancer to rally her base, supporters sat outside hospital 24/7 waiting for any news, then doctors said she had no cancer?

    All while late Hugo Chavez claimed America infected him with cancer. As plausible as his another claim that capitalism destroyed life in Mars.
    Latin America leaders are very eccentric indeed (mildly put).
