Skip to comments.Official: Iran Ordered Terrorist Bombing in the Americas (1994 Jewish Center in Buenos Aires)
Posted on 09/28/2007 12:01:21 AM PDT by Stoat
The Iranian government directly ordered an act of terrorism in the Americas after being frustrated in its secret nuclear ambitions, a former chief of Argentine intelligence tells FOX News in an exclusive interview.
Miguel Angel Toma, the former head of the Argentina's intelligence service, tells FOX News' Dan Senor that the Iranian government directly ordered a terror bombing on a Buenos Aires Jewish community center in 1994. The interview will air on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel.
Toma's investigation into a Middle East-style terrorist bombing targeting Argentinean Jews found that the orders for the attack were given at the highest levels of the Iranian government in response to the ending of secret nuclear and missile agreements between Iran and Argentina.
On March 17, 1992, a homicide bomber drove an explosive-filled truck into the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 and injuring hundreds more. Two years later, on July 18, 1994, an attack on a Buenos Aires Jewish community center killed 85.

Please be advised also that there is a video excerpt from the upcoming Fox News program on this at that page as well.
From the article:
Responsibility for both bombings was pinned on Hezbollah, but Toma's investigation into the community center bombing found the decision for that bombing came straight from Tehran.
That's a very serious allegation to make.
Indeed. It will be interesting to watch the program and see all of the evidence that's presented.
Which part of the “Bumper Sticker War” covers Argentina?
Interesting this is getting press again
Well, at least we know Clinton was busy hunting OBL.
As he was in 1993 at the time of the first World Trade Center bombing (one year before) and in 1995 at the time of the Oklahoma City bombing (one year later), presumably. Of course, he blamed right wing talk show hosts for Oklahoma City to divert attention from the fact that Iraqi operatives were the masterminds of that plot, with McVeigh and Nichols serving as convenient front men.
I’m sure John Edwards will tell us!
That’s a pretty serious allegation. Care to shed some light on the matter. Any articles/information out there suggesting McVeigh/Nichols were actually just frontmen.
