Coinciding with Thierry Meyssan’s earlier conclusions and with those of other Argentinian investigators [*], economist and globalization expert Adrian Salbuchi chronicles the events that shook Buenos Aires in 1992 and 1994, contouring their flagrant false-flag characteristics and irrefutable Israeli footprint, and connecting them to a wider pattern of similar "terrorist attacks". Far from being fortuitous, Salbuchi offers a coherent picture in which all these events tie in with a broader scheme for global economic and military domination.

A very different situation altogether has arisen with the circumstances surrounding the second and more deadly attack on the AMIA building, which has always received very high profile coverage in the local and even some international media to this very day. In contrast with the Embassy, this building housed a private, Argentine organization AMIA, and its sister political organization, DAIA. Those killed were all Argentine citizens, and the whole tragedy fell strictly under Argentine jurisdiction. And yet, on the very same day the explosion took place, then President Carlos Menem officially requested the assistance of the FBI and CIA from the United States and the Mossad intelligence service and the armed forces of Israel.

AMIA building after 1994 attack.

In the ensuing chaos amidst the rubble, tempers ran very high with local police when Israeli Army intelligence officers planted an Israeli flag in the rubble. Almost immediately, those same Israelis “luckily” found a piece of the alleged car-bomb – a white Renault ‘Trafic” van – that “luckily” just happened to have the manufacturer’s serial number on it. This was reminiscent of other highly unlikely but “lucky” finds, such as the FBI’s locating one alleged suicide bomber intact passport in the rubble of the World Trade Center just after 9/11!

From the beginning, the AMIA case has been riddled with corruption, fraud and lies, inconsistencies, even flagrant contradictions and crime in the highest places. The case has gone through seven Federal courts. A special “AMIA Department” was actually set up by the Judiciary to house literally hundreds of thousands of pages of declarations, evidence, reports, surveys, studies, accusations and counteraccusations that have built up over the more than fifteen years that have lapsed since the attack occurred.

For a number of years, the case was heard in the District Court presided by a Federal Judge by the name of Juan Galeano, who was so weak – if not downright stupid – that he allowed himself to be coaxed and pressured by local Zionist organizations – the AMIA and DAIA themselves – into authorizing payment of a 400,000 USD kickback to a shady used-car dealer by the name of Carlos Telleldín, who had sold the alleged car bomb van to alleged Hizbollah operatives in return for his formally accusing three Buenos Aires Police officers of being the “local connection” that would lead first to Syria, then to Hizbollah, and finally to Iran.

The money for that 400,000 USD kickback was provided by the then-president of the DAIA, Rubén Beraja through his (now defunct) bank Banco Mayo. Beraja recently spent several years in jail because of the fraudulent collapse of that bank. But, to understand how these global power networks actually work, let me point out that before that, in 1996, when Paul Volcker set up a so-called “Commission of Eminent Persons” to “investigate” dormant Jewish accounts in major Swiss Banks – through which they extracted more than 1.25 billion USD from those banks –, he (Volker) actually chose as one of the “eminent persons” to sit on the Commission the very same shady character, Rubén Beraja.

The corruption, wheeling and dealing got so bad that, under the Kirchner government, it was decided to scrap everything and “start from scratch”, which we would soon discover actually meant using the CIA and the Mossad to fabricate false accusations against Iran. That’s where we stand today.

JFYou mention the official accounts maintain both attacks were caused by car bombs. But my impression is that the explosions were just the opposite – that they both occurred from the inside out. Is that right?

AS: That’s what the technical experts say. And, if we use common sense, we all know that, every time there is an attack with real car-bombs, you always find large parts of the vehicles used by the terrorists. In these two attacks, however, nothing was found of either of the alleged bomb-carrying vehicles except for false evidence apparently planted by Israeli officers, as I mentioned above.

In the case of the AMIA, the Court asked a Border Police (Gendarmería) surveyor to give an “official opinion” about the alleged car-bomb van and this person, by the name of Commander Osvaldo Laborda, officially said that no more parts were found “because the explosion buried it deep under the entrance to the former AMIA building”, if you can believe that.

Now, I’m a close friend of defence lawyer Juan Gabriel Labaké, who represents two Argentine citizens of Syrian descent who have been falsely accused of involvement. (I say “falsely” because, after 15 years, not a shred of evidence has been brought against them.) Since the case against his clients and against Iran hinge on that elusive car-bomb van, Dr. Labaké recently asked Special State Prosecutor Alberto Nisman to dig four meters under the entrance to the former AMIA building in order to determine, once and for all, if the remains of that vehicle exist. Prosecutor Nisman refused to do so, which is not surprising when you consider that he tours the world spreading a fanatically pro-Israel and anti-Arab message regarding the AMIA attack.

At the end of 2007, for example, Mr. Nisman was a special guest at the Annual Meeting of the American Jewish Congress. In March 2009, he gave a presentation at the Queensborough Holocaust Library in New York City. At the end of 2008 he personally submitted a full report on the status of this case to the Supreme Court - not of Argentina, as you might expect, but of Israel in Tel Aviv. Clearly, Mr Nisman acts as Special Prosecutor not on behalf of Argentina but of the State of Israel!
