A judge in Argentina has issued an arrest warrant for former president and now Senator Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner of Argentina. Of course her arrest is contingent on her losing her immunity status as an Argentine legislator meaning she won’t likely be arrested until she’s out of office…..if ever. The arrest warrant is in connection to charges of treason for having allegedly aiding IRANIAN TERRORISTS!!
A 500 page indictment alleges Kirchner engaged in a cover-up and that she agreed to help the government of Iran protect organizers of the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) in exchange for favorable trading deals. Kirchner even went so far as to sign a “memorandum of understanding” which included Iran as one of the parties investigating itself!! During her tenure as President, Kirchner reportedly strove to all her nation with Iran and regional Leftist states such as Bolivia and Venezuela. But that’s not all. The prosecutor who prepared the charges and arrest warrant, Alberto Nisman, was conveniently found dead with a gunshot wound to the head and his death was deemed as “suicide.” Isn’t it amazing how leftist governments have such good “luck”?
Argentina’s current president is a conservative named Mauricio Macri and those who want Kirchner arrested are hoping her day in court has come. Judge Claudio Bonadio officially charged Kirchner with “treason against the nation” and “aggravated concealment of facts” earlier today. She is also accused of betraying traditional and historical national interests by participating in a plan to “gain impunity for Iranian citizens accused in the terrorist attack and to normalize relations between Iran and Argentina.” The indictment further alleges Kirchner established “parallel unofficial channels of communications and negotiations” with the Iranians with the intent to plan the planned criminal objective.” The charge of treason alone carries a minimum 10 year prison sentence.
The AMIA terror attack killed 85 people and was one of the deadliest terrorist attacks carried out by Muslim extremists in the history of the Western Hemisphere at the time. The now dead prosecutor Nisman found evidence tying the Iranian terrorists to the psychotic Iranian government and secured 6 Interpol alerts. What that means is that Interpol saw enough of Nisman’s evidence to convince them to issue the alerts internationally so that evidence must have been convincing. Nisman also alleged Kirchner and her leftist government negotiated with Interpol after the alerts were issued in an effort to get them to cancel the alerts in exchange for favorable oil deals. Nisman also found evidence that Kirchner planned to put the blame for the terror attack on “right wing groups.”
Nisman was schedule to detail his finding to the parliament in Argentina but was found dead the night before. Amazing!! Police found a draft arrest warrant for Kirchner in his home. Kirchner and her government then set out to discredit the prosecutor claiming he led a “licentious lifestyle that was very expensive.” They also called him a “scoundrel”and accused him of frequenting prostitutes. Kirchner’s government said his death was a suicide not a murder and all further investigation into his death was dropped. The prosecutor’s death became a major issue in the 2015 Argentine election which drove Kirchner’s government from power and put in the current conservative government under President Macri. He promised to launch a credible investigation into the prosecutor’s death and bring Kirchner to justice.
Under Argentine law in order for Kirchner to be arrested the Senate would have to strip her of her parliamentary immunity and at this point it is doubtful that will happen any time soon. The judge in this case has also called for the arrest of numerous members of Kirchner’s former government who were involved in the deal with Iran.
This is a classic example of how Leftist governments operate. They make deals with the devil, discredit those trying to expose them, and even kill them if necessary. Perhaps we in the USA need to learn a lesson from Kirchner’s Argentina for future reference.
