Today’s Capt. Louis Renault moment:
Argentine President Cristina Kirchner is using the nuclear accord between Iran and world powers to defend a much-criticized deal her own government made with Tehran nearly three years ago.
That 2013 accord, to create a “truth commission” with Iran to investigate the deadly 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, was criticized by many in Argentina and abroad—including officials in Israel—who said it would permit Iranian suspects to avoid justice.
Political analysts in Argentina say the nuclear deal, forged this month, has given Mrs. Kirchner the chance to put her own dealings with Iran it in a new light. She has done so through a series of tweets and public comments.
