In the wake of the death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, all signs seem to point to a massive political cover-up.
At the center of this alleged political conspiracy is Argentina’s president, Cristina Kirchner.
Accusations made against the Argentine president in actuality go further back than the bombshell dropped by Nisman just one day before his untimely death.
According to a 2013 article published by the Inquisitr, Alberto Nisman had made the shocking claim that Iran and terrorist organization Hezbollah were able to successfully initiate various operations throughout South America.

Chief among these terrorist operations was the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israelite Mutual Association, or AMIA, building.
Since taking over the investigation, the Argentine prosecutor repeatedly hinted at the fact that there was a political connection between the highest levels of Argentina’s government to the incident, which claimed the lives of 85 people.
Things seemed to come to a head last weekend, when Alberto Nisman was set on testifying before Argentina’s Congress and officially naming those believed to have terrorist ties to the government.
The prosecutor stated grimly that he doubted that he would survive the investigation, and his home was heavily guarded.
Even so, shortly after the prosecutor was found dead last Sunday, certain Argentine officials declared Nisman’s demise to have been an apparent suicide.
Now, justice officials have revealed that early information surrounding the death of Alberto Nisman was incorrect.

According to the AFP, Alberto Nisman was shot in the forehead at point-blank range.
It seems official: Someone murdered the Argentine prosecutor.
The AFP said that Argentine authorities have identified one individual as a person of interest in the case. Diego Lagomarsino, a computer expert and colleague of Alberto Nisman, allegedly brought the deceased prosecutor a handgun at the prosecutor’s request.
As the last person believed to have seen Alberto alive, Diego has been officially barred by officials (at the request of prosecutor Viviana Fein) from leaving the country.
Allegedly, border guards have been requested for the safe keeping of the potential eye-witness (or suspect), as the offer by Security Minister María Cecilia Rodríguez was declined; her officers are currently under investigation in relation to the murder of Alberto Nisman.
Another person that authorities in Argentina wanted a word with was reporter Damian Pachter.

It was Pachter, reporting for the English-language Buenos Aires Herald, who broke the story regarding the death of Alberto Nisman.
Soon after, Damian left Argentina, claiming that there had been threats made on his life and that his phone had been tapped.
Though Pachter said he wished to return to Argentina at some point, he revealed that he was doubtful it would be possible “under this administration.”
