Syrian Dictator Assad Secretly Hosted Argentine and Iranian Foreign Ministers in AMIA Bombing Coveru

News outlets in Argentina were abuzz on Wednesday with speculation that the country’s former president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, and her foreign minister, Hector Timerman, may now face charges of treason for secretly negotiating a pact with Iran that exonerated the Tehran regime for the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires.

A sensational courtroom appearance by a former Argentine ambassador to Syria on Wednesday morning confirmed that Timerman had visited Syria in January 2011 to finalize the pact, at a meeting hosted by the Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad, that included Iran’s then-foreign minister, Ali Akhbar Salehi — who now heads the Islamic Republic’s Atomic Energy Organization.


Toby Dershowitz of the Washington, DC-based Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) think tank — which assisted Nisman with his investigation prior to his murder – said Ahuad’s testimony proved it was “time for others with knowledge of other parts of the conspiracy that sought to absolve senior Iranian officials from their role in the AMIA bombing to come clean.”

“Moreover, there are a range of bureaucrats, technicians, and officials alike who have visibility into who ordered, paid for and carried out the murder of prosecutor Nisman,” Dershowitz told The Algemeiner. “They should come forward too for the sake of justice – not just for Nisman and the victims of the AMIA bombing, but for Argentina itself, which has for too long been the victim of a damaged justice system.”
