Argentine Prosecutor Shoots Down A Slander Against Iran And Fernandez

Posted by Phoenix Woman on April 21, 2015

And here we are for another edition of “Shout the Lie and Whisper the Retraction”: Iranian Edition.

A few weeks ago, the death of a (to put it charitably) mentally ill prosecutor threw heavy Western media focus on those claims of his that were calculated to gin up a “let’s nuke Iran” response. Now, as the rational among us expected, his claims have been weighed in the balance and found wanting:

An Argentine prosecutor on Monday dismissed accusations against President Cristina Fernandez that she helped shield Iranian officials allegedly behind the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center, effectively putting an end to a case that had exposed deep divisions in the South American nation.

Javier De Luca, prosecutor before the Court of Appeals, said there wasn’t enough evidence in late prosecutor Alberto Nisman’s investigation to warrant a probe.

[…]

The case was rejected by a federal judge in February and then thrown out on appeal by the Federal Appeals court. De Luca’s decision not to present the case to the next level of appeals court means it has effectively reached the end of the line.

Of course, the same news media that heavily pushed Nisman’s allegations didn’t exactly broadcast this from the rooftops, which is why we’re finding this out from HuffPost and not, say, the CBS Evening News.

    The New York Times and the Washington Post have entered into an contract with Peter Schweizer to do oppo research on Hillary.

    Really, two dollar whores have far more respectability than Our Nation’s Premier Newspapers.

    • Paul Krugman just dope-slapped his bosses at the NYT over this, reminding them that unlike twenty years ago, a thriving web of debunkers exists to shoot down such nonsense.
