Argentina is (Suspected to be) Still Dirty

Attention has been garnered in Argentina after the mysterious death of Alberto Nisman. Nisman was the prosecutor in a case about an Iranian bombing of Jewish center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people. The attack occurred in 1994. Many people are blaming the President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, for the slaying, citing that deals had been made with Iran for oil shipments. Interestingly enough, Argentina is apparently not lacking in the way of energy sources. Governmental corruption is not a new thing in Argentina, so the accusations being leveled against President Kirchner are not surprising. Her defense case is not helped by the fact that she submitted a bill to congress to dissolve the intelligence apparatus, an agency that she has had problems with in the past. Still, some believe that she will not be indicted, either due to innocence or political maneuvering. President Kirchner is slated to leave office at the end of this year.
