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.

Or will Nisman’s revelations of Iran’s role in terrorism in the Western Hemisphere die as he did?
To be sure, the defeat of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s preferred candidate, Daniel Scioli, was met with a global sigh of relief for those concerned about Argentina’s rapprochement with Iran, including a secret backchannel exposed by Nisman.
Since taking office in December, Macri has signaled a significant change of course from his predecessor’s position on Iran. In less than two months, Macri has revoked the controversial Memorandum of Understanding with the Islamic Republic, appointed a new cabinet- level official and bureau to oversee the AMIA investigation, and re-opened the probe into Nisman’s suspicious death. He has also said he would revisit Nisman’s investigation into the previous Argentine government’s alleged plan to expunge Iran’s involvement in the attack in exchange for closer bilateral diplomatic, economic and perhaps even nuclear ties.
