Argentina Defines Terrorism In Its Own Unique Way

I love this story about Argentina wanting to arrest for Iranian president Hashemi Rafsanjani for blowing up a Buenos Aires synagogue in 1994, killing 85.

Of course, this was an awful attack. But it's pretty interesting that Argentina has chosen to focus on the terrorism of other nations while ignoring their own terrorism against their own citizen during their dictatorship between 1976 and 1983. The CNN article describes the attack as "the worst terrorist attack on Argentine soil."

Somehow, I think the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo would disagree with this assessment.
