Argentina is in turmoil over the sudden death of Alberto Nisman, a prosecutor who late last week accused Argentinian President Christine Fernandez de Kirchner and other government officials with conspiring with Iran to put the kibosh on investigating Iran's role in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires which left 85 people dead. Nisman had been investigating this for a decade and It is alleged that Kirchner offered Iranians suspected in the bombing immunity in exchange for Iranian oil.
Nisman was scheduled to testify before a congressional hearing on Monday, but was found dead of a gunshot wound on Sunday. Argentinian officials claim that Nisman committed suicide, but the public isn't buying it and have taken to social media and to the streets with the slogan, "Yo Soy Nisman", a play on "Je Suis Charlie".
Elections are due in October. Kirchner is prohibited from running. But if a prosecutor can be murdered hours before giving damning testimony then anything is possible. We may soon cry for Argentina.
