Carlos Saúl Menem was President of Argentina from July 8, 1989 to December 10, 1999 for the Justicialist Party . He is noted for resolving territorial disputes with Chile, and for re-establishing diplomatic relations with the United Kingdom. He is also infamous and criticized for corruption, his pardons to former dictators Videla, Massera, and other convicted criminals of the Dirty War, the failure of his economic policies which led to unemployment rates of over 20 percent and one of the worst recesions Argentina ever had, and his dubious handling of the investigations of the 1992 Israeli Embassy bombing and the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center.
