This is the lowest thing I’ve heard about - at least this week. Giving up an investigation of the murder of your own citizens in exchange for improved trade with a country whose primary export is support for terrorism (and who is presumed to have been responsible for the murders) is both stupid and depraved. Note Wikipedia comments on this case:

“…No suspects have been convicted of the bombing and there have been many allegations made, including those blaming the government of Iran. These investigations were marred by incompetence; former President Nestor Kirchner called them a “national disgrace” in 2005. In 1999 an arrest warrant was issued against Hezbollah member Imad Mugniyah in connection with the attack. Argentine justice accused Tehran in 2006 of being behind the attacks, allegedly because of Buenos Aires’ decision to suspend a nuclear material delivery and technology transfer.”

That’s right, the former President of Argentina and the late husband of the current President Cristina Kirchner described the unsolved case as a “national disgrace”. I wonder what he would say about the current news.

Perfil is an anti-Fernandez Argentinian tabloid so yes, we’ll have to wait and see if this is true. It also seems as though it was the Iranians making the offer to Argentina and not the other way around. Also, the USA also made it a habit of providing safe harbor for many former Nazis for military and other scientific reasons.

Maybe it was Argentina who made the offer to Iran …

How many of them went on to murder our citizens in the streets of the US? Not to say harboring them was right, but your comment is an “apples meet oranges!” sort of thing. Not to mention we have turned many over to justice in the past few decades, and the bombing was in this century.

We can quibble about the details. Wernher Von Braun and others. You might want to look into Operation Paperclip (not a conspiracy). Perhaps I should ask you to forgive me because I’m from Argentina and get a little defensive about this. Or perhaps look into ODESSA:

Argentine writer Uki Goñi, in his 2002 book The Real Odessa: Smuggling the Nazis to Perón’s Argentina suggested that Sereny’s more complex, and less conspiratorial, story was closer to the truth. In 1938, on the verge of World War II, and with Hitler’s policies on Jews in transit, Argentina’s government sanctioned an immigration law restricting access by any individual scorned or forsaken by his country’s government. This law was alleged to have implicitly targeted Jews and other minorities fleeing Germany at the time, and was denounced by Uki Goñi, who admits that his own grandfather had participated in upholding it. Between 1930 and 1949, however, Argentina took in more Jewish refugees per capita than any other nation in the world, with the exception of Israel.

Read that again if you will: Between 1930 and 1949, however, Argentina took in more Jewish refugees per capita than any other nation in the world, with the exception of Israel.

And as far as “went on to murder our citizens in the streets of the US?” I don’t understand that statement. No, none of them did since most of them were scientists. However, and ironically enough, the USA was a strong supporter of fascistic South American military regimes did killed many of its citizens. And that includes Argentina. See Operation Condor.
