For The Record

Tangled Web: Overview of the AMIA Bombing Investigation

Lis­ten (MP3): This pro­gram was recorded in one, 60-minute segment

In this pro­gram, we detail some of the deep pol­i­tics sur­round­ing the AMIA attack, prepara­tory to a dis­cus­sion of devel­op­ments in the inves­ti­ga­tion of Argen­tine pros­e­cu­tor Alberto Nisman’s death in FTR #836. The dizzy­ing melange of indi­vid­u­als, insti­tu­tions and events con­nected to the AMIA bomb­ing involves: sev­eral peo­ple linked to for­mer Argen­tin­ian pres­i­dent Car­los Menem; indi­vid­u­als linked to the Iran-Contra scan­dal; neo-Nazi ele­ments in Argentina; inves­ti­ga­tions into fugi­tive Nazi war crim­i­nals; the res­ig­na­tions of two jus­tice min­is­ters involved in the AMIA inves­ti­ga­tion; the sus­pi­cious deaths of numer­ous indi­vid­u­als linked to one or another of the ele­ments fig­ur­ing in sev­eral related inves­ti­ga­tions; evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries link­ing the AMIA bomb­ing to the Okla­homa City Bomb­ing, the bomb­ing of Pan Am flight 103 over Locker­bie, Scot­land and the Achille Lauro hijack­ing in 1985.

The Big Bitcoin Bet, Part 2: Big Money to Buy Bitcoin, and Other Bad Ideas 2014 could have been better for Bitcoin. After peaking near $1100 in December 2013, Bitcoin is currently under $250. 2014 was not a good year for Bitcoin. But that doesn't mean 2015 has to be the same. And if a slew of recent announcement involving some very big investors are any indication of what to expect, the mainstreaming Bitcoin is about to get a big boost. But that boost could come with a big price too. All those "microtransactions" of as little as 0.000000001 of one bitcoin (BTC) that much of the Bitcoin community hates so much is precisely what these deep pocketed interests are planning on promoting in a big way. And in order to make it all happen, they might have to become some of the biggest bitcoin miners around too. And that means the future of Bitcoin is increasing in the hands of 'The Man'. Also, the microtransactions might be used to monetize how we access the web. And how the Internet of Things spies on us. It doesn't actually sound very fun. Read more »
