Precommentary — The following article by a Jewish Argentine journalist writing in the Jewish Daily Forward echoes much of what Adrian Salbuchi has long told the audience of the David Duke Show — namely that prosecutor Alberto Nisman was trying to concoct a case against Iran out of thin air.

Prosecutor’s Terror Cover-Up Case Is Falling Apart
If you are one of the many people watching that movie, I have to warn you: Judge Daniel Rafecas’s flat-out dismissal of Nisman’s accusation, released February 26, is going to be quite a spoiler.
I don’t know of anyone in Argentina who considered Nisman a hero before he was found dead in his apartment on January 18.

The services have long been involved in political espionage, financing of political campaigns, bribing of judges and lawmakers, and every dirty operation you can imagine.

His task was to make presentable the fabrication concocted by Judge Juan José Galeano. With forged evidence, Galeano and other authorities had accused a ring of corrupt police officers of being the “local connection” in the bombing.
