PLEASE, REMEMBER THIS FACE!! This is Alberto Nisman. He was the prosecuter in charge of taking Argentinian president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to JUSTICE for the cover up of iranian terrorists in the 1994 AMIA terrorist attack. He had evidence, and the shit was gonna hit the fan today, January 19 th, 2015. Today, Jan. 19 th, 2015, Nisman was found DEAD of a shotgun wound in the head. I wanna take this news to you, citizens of the world, that you may have Argentina in your thoughts and prayers, for this truly is a silent dictatorship.

R.I.P./Q.E.P.D. Alberto Nisman

It has been 239 years. We have been tested many times during these many years, but we have also prevailed. Americans have the best nation in the history of the world, and there is no other place I would rather be. I only hope and pray that our next 239 years is filled with a renewed sense of pride and unity as we are stronger as a united nation. Happy Birthday to the one nation that I cherish.
