    David, The answers are in the article. Menem was extremely corrupt. I really don't think he's an antisemitic. He had strong ties with many powerful Jews (many of them as corrupt as himself, and despised by the Argentinean Jewish community) Rumors were that the deal was only to ignore all kind of intelligence reports, and instruct the police and other organizations to do so. These rumors go back to at least 10 years ago. There was even talk about the 10 million fee. As an Argentinean, I'm really surprised that even after so much time, the investigation is going on. About what Hanz Schultz mentions, that he's just an 80 year old, let me tell you something: He's completely lucid, healthy and young looking. Being 80 y/o today is not the same as before. Justice and punishment of the powerful is rare in Argentina. This would be a very positive step.
