Abstract
Description
Analyzes "case against Argentina" and comments on its validity; Perón regime cannot be blamed for actions of regime in power during war; if not all enemy aliens have been deported or all enemy property liquidated, Argentina has done as much as other Latin American countries; cannot apply one set of criteria to Argentina and another to other countries; during past year, by speech making, press accounts, and publication of "Blue Book" just before Argentine election, State Department has intervened in the internal affairs of Argentina in an attempt to influence election against Perón; Argentinians resent such intervention and it had opposite effect from the one intended; U.S. Argentine policy affects World foreign policy; unless there is hemisphere solidarity, U.S. will find herself in isolated position in a world of growing Socialism and Communism.
