Bachelet sobre Argentina, depeche de 2010-01-15, publicado de Wikileaks

En Wikileaks, depeche de la embajada de EEUU en Santiago. La verdad es que este análisis podría haber sido tomado de cualquier diario, no me parece nada especial. 

Bachelet was frank about her view of Argentina, saying thatChile's neighbor has problems with credibility as a country -- itsdemocracy is not robust, and its institutions are not strong.Flisfisch added that Argentina's unusual federal system andPeronist ideology--which can lead to political paranoia--areadditional obstacles to political and economic stability.Argentines tend to live from crisis to crisis, the President added,rather than pursuing stable, long-term policies.

Y más adelante:

President Bachelet highlighted that Chile had achieved avery positive relationship with Argentina despite the challengingpolitical situation there and Kirchner's shortcomings. Chile andArgentina have a number of bilateral agreements in place and duringKirchner's October visit to Santiago the two presidents shared thenow-famous "Maipu hug" after recalling the historic friendship andheroism of both countries.

Sobre Cristina Fernández, en particular, dice:

President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is emblematic ofArgentina's problems, the Chileans agreed. Kirchner is notanti-U.S. by nature, Bachelet asserted, but is convinced that the2007 "maletinazo" incident was a plot against her and will notlisten to contradictory evidence. (Note: "Maletinazo" refers toan incident in which Venezuelan officials found nearly US $800,000in cash the suitcase of a U.S. citizen at a Buenos Aires airport.
