236. You are correct that Chavez was not happy
and for that matter, Lula apparently was not either.

From a Brazilian newspaper, the nut graphs: (translation mine)

"Lula foi se reunir com Obama (em Washington) e eu aceitei que fizesse uma intermediao entre ns. Mandei-lhe uma mensagem na qual escrevi todas as declaraes contra a Venezuela feitas pelas autoridades da Administrao de Obama, entre elas as da sra. (secretria de Estado americana, Hillary) Clinton", disse Chvez.

"Lula went to meet with Obama (in Washington) and I agreed that (Lula) mediate between us. I sent him (Obama) a message in which I wrote all the remarks against Venezuela made by officials of Obama's administration, among them by Hillary Clinton," Chavez said.

O presidente venezuelano, que no deu mais detalhes do contedo dessa mensagem, acrescentou que, "infelizmente, Lula saiu insatisfeito com a resposta de Obama".

The Venezuelan president, who did not give more details of the message's content, added "unfortunately, Lula emerged unsatisfied with Obama's response."

"Mediante o que li nas entrelinhas e expresses (da resposta), conclu que Obama sofre de algo que pode ser superado: a ignorncia do que acontece de verdade na aqui (Amrica Latina)", disse Chvez.

According to what I read between lines and the expressions (in the response), I concluded that Obama suffers from something that can be overcome; ignorance of what truly occurs (in Latin America), Chavez said.

Segundo o chefe de Estado, essa ignorncia se deve ao fato de o presidente dos Estados Unidos "ainda ouvir a mesma coisa que lhe leem alguns assessores do Pentgono e da Casa Branca que serviram Administrao anterior".

According to the head of state, that ignorance is due to the fact that the president of the United States "is still hearing the same thing read to him by some advisors who worked for the previous administration in the Pentagon and the White House.
