    Citing an article by notorious Israel basher Gareth Porter, a shill for the ayatollahs, is really beyond the pale. Porter is right up there with Glenn Greenwald, Max Blumenthal, and Noam Chomsky in the Israel bashing community. For shame.

    Forgot to include link to an article discrediting Porter in my previous comment.

    Be careful with how the international press treats the Nisman case, Mike. They often cite Veja, a Brazilian magazine of questionable reputation and ignore the complexity and confusion inherent to Argentinian politics. In a country where rising above your peers is a sacred duty, no matter the cost, and where incompetence reigns supreme, it’s advisable to keep a healthy skepticism when it comes to clear-cut grand narratives aimed at high echelon politicians. Besides, the full story has being going for a long time. A very long time indeed.

    It’s a shame we will never know what really happened there.
