Alberto Nisman: Down the rabbit hole we go

This will run and run. Today the ex-wife of killed (murdered?/suicide?) public prosecutor Alberto Nisman, herself a judge in Argentina, held a press conference in which she stated that after examining the forensic evidence available she was certain that her ex-husband was murdered. She cited evidence from the gun shot that killed him (including the lack of residue found on Nisman's hand, the trajectory of the bullet) as well as stating that the body had been moved after death and that the government's conclusion about the time of death were wrong. Uki Goñi, about the best English language reporter covering the country, has filed this report on today's happenings, which gives the facts as seen in the presser but does little to capture the commotion in Argentina today after the event.

IKN repeats: It's an election year in Argentina.
