Headline Mar 24, 2015/ ''' !ARGENTINA THROUGH SUICIDES? '''


''ARGENTINA IS MONOTONOUS,  -it repeats its tragedies,'' says Santiago Kovadloff, a  72-year old philosopher.

Political  ''suicides''  are so common in Argentina that special world has been invented for them. Ask different people in Buenos Aires today and they may disagree whether the crusading prosecutor Alberto Nisman was murdered or took his own life.

But most everyone will concur that Mr. Nisman was  ''suicided,'' the latest victim of a dark-power centrifuge that with sinister regularity spews out dead bodies in this very divided nation.

The historical record does not bode well for clarity in the Nisman case. Juan Duarte, older brother of Argentina's political saint, Eva Peron, committed  ''suicide''  in 1953, nine months after his sister had thrown the nation into a paroxysm of grief over her own early death, at age 33, from cancer.

Embroiled in corruption scandals and suspected of playing a hand in the smuggling of Nazi funds to Argentina, Mr.Duarte was found, like Mr.Nisman, alone, with a  bullet in his head. To this day, historians debate the real cause of Mr.Duate's death.

The head-scratching continues over more recent mysterious deaths. Hector Febres, an officer in charge of the so called  ''maternity ward''  at the notorious Navy Mechanics School in Buenos Aires:

That became a death camp for thousands of political prisoners during the 1976-83 military dictatorships, was found dead by cyanide poisoning in his cell in 2007.

An apparent suicide, he was believed by many to have been murdered, to silence him about the human rights crimes for which he was on trial.

The Febres case resonates today. Mr.Nisman died the day before he was to appear before Congress to substantiate his charges against President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchener for conspiring with Iran.

And the Judge who investigated Mr.Febre's death, Sandra Arroyo Salgado, was married to Mr.Nisman at the time.

Ms. Arroyo Salgado reached the conclusion that Mr.Febres was killed by former comrades who feared he would speak about one of the most heinous the junta's crimes:

Keeping pregnant political prisoners alive until they gave birth, then murdering them, and handing over their babies to  ''good''  military families to raise as their own.

A higher court overturned Judge Arroyo Salgado's attempt to prosecute the officers she suspected to Mr. Febre's death. Another unsolved  ''suicide.''

Sometimes, one death is not enough to cover up the corruption and criminality of Argentina's shady establishment. The invisible  ''mechanics''  who silence troublesome witnesses-

Have not balked at blowing up entire city blocks.

On Nov.3, 1995 a huge explosion rocked Rio Tercero in the central province of Cordoba, killing seven people, injuring hundreds and devastating wide areas of the small city.

In the brief four days that we now know were left to him, Mr. Nisman went on a fearless media blitz, discussing, in his trademark motormouth style, a world of government subterfuge that had never been exposed in such detail.

''I know I could get killed over this,'' he said, as he gave a whirlwind tour of revelation upon revelation.

Mr.Nisman was only a prosecutor, but his death is dressed in the awed stupefaction of a Kennedy-level event.
