Occurring suddenly in the midst of Oscar season, the mysterious death of Argentine special prosecutor Alberto Nisman is the kind of real-life whodunit that Hollywood producers dream of putting on the big screen. But for those who for more than two decades have sought justice for the 85 people who lost their lives, and for the 300 wounded, in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Nisman’s passing makes that search even harder.
He was, in a way, the 86th victim.
Investigating the worst terrorist act committed in the Western Hemisphere before 9/11 required an individual determined to uncover the truth. Nisman proved to be the right man for the job, as it became clear soon after he was appointed special prosecutor in 2005 to probe the AMIA bombing.
