SFS SPECIAL REPORT — After Nisman: How the death of a prosecutor revealed Iran’s growing influence in the Americas describes Iran’s Threat Network as a missing link to solving the death of Alberto Nisman, special prosecutor for the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish cultural center in Argentina, who mysteriously died a day before he was to testify before the Argentine congress about a criminal conspiracy to whitewash Iran’s involvement in the second largest Islamic terrorist attack in the Americas.
The special report is authored by SFS Executive Director Joseph M. Humire, who, after extensive field research in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Peru, argues a possible Iranian motive towards Nisman’s mysterious death. His argument is based on analysis of thousands of documents and numerous declassified intelligence reports related to the AMIA case, as well as a partial review of the close to 40,000 legally authorized wiretaps between Iranian and Argentine proxies made public in 2015.

SFS Policy report No. 1, Canada On Guard: Assessing the Immigration Security Threat of Iran, Venezuela and Cuba, delves into an emerging threat to North American immigration security building on a theme discussed on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on October 2012 and at the Albany Club, Toronto on November 2013 as part of our annual Future of North America Forum.
The report is co-authored by SFS Executive Director Joseph M. Humire, Senior Fellow Fernando D. Menéndez and ISEA’s Managing Director Victoria L. Henderson, and uses several fact-finding trips to Latin America and two declassified Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) intelligence reports to provide specific data on Iran’s exploitation of cracks in Canada’s immigration system. The report also examines Venezuela’s role as a “bridge” for Iranian covert access to Canada, reviews the use of cultural exchange and other soft power strategies to win support for state sponsors of terrorism, and presents preliminary policy recommendations for strengthening Canada’s immigration and national security system.
