Argentina's National Prosecutor General Alejandra Gils Carbo has prevented AMIA case Special Prosecutor Alberto Nisman from attending the U-S Congress. Nisman was expected to expose some 500-page indictment accusing Iran of allegedly "infiltrating" Latin America to establish "intelligence networks". Washington's invitation to Nisman was sponsored by Ileana Ross Lehtinen, President of the U-S Congress Foreign Affairs Committee and a staunch supporter of U-S-led wars around the world. But this new US strategy closes yet with another perfect finale: Argentina and Iran have moved towards a new stance in relations reaching a comprehensive Memorandum of Understanding to jointly probe the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish Community center in Buenos Aires. This is not the first time the Gils Carbo has to face pressure by pro-Israel lobbies. Following the approval of the Memorandum at Argentina's Congress earlier this year, the Asociacion Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) and the Delegation of Israeli-Argentine Associations (DAIA) filed an appeal demanding the judiciary to declare the unconstitutionality of the Buenos Aires-Tehran accord. Gils Carbo was officially nominated for the post of Prosecutor General last year by President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner with both ruling party and opposition MPs approving her designation. The MoU, which readies the creation of a Truth Commission to investigate the AMIA attack, has been recently approved by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, thus clearly refuting claims by local and foreign Zionist groups that accused Iran of seeking to divert the investigation.
