Look at Nisman’s Murder in the Context of Diplomacy
Your editorial “Murder Most Foul in Argentina” (Dec. 28) on the murder of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman is spot on, but the timing of this sordid affair is overlooked. Nisman was assassinated not long before the signing of the Iran nuclear deal with the P5+1 when the ayatollahs needed to project an image of respectability. The imminent presentation of Nisman’s report to the National Congress of Argentina proving Iran’s culpability in the bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish community center could have undermined the ayatollahs’ objective of having the nuclear deal signed. Thus Nisman had to be stopped at any cost.
I don’t believe the timing of this “mysterious” assassination was a coincidence.
