DONALD TRUMP, GEORGE H.W. BUSH AND THE FALL OF PANAMA’S NORIEGA

How are these men related?

Read on….My story in Newsweek.

As Newsday’s Latin America correspondent, I reported from Panama before, during and after the 1989 Panama invasion. The United States spent hundreds of millions of dollars to attack a country that offered little resistance.

I found the U.S. charges against Noriega to be very thin.

George H.W. Bush had decided to invade Panama and the system had to endorse what he had wrought.

    Thanks, Peter. It’s all so sordid. Thinking of you both. I’ll find out within a week when my knee replacement surgery takes place. Once I’m healed I look forward to Having all over for dinner. Love to Musha.

    One can only hope that our current President, should he feel the need to distract the attention of the American public, a very likely possibility the way things are going, is capable of discerning important differences between the consequences of invading Panama as opposed, say, to military strikes on North Korea.
