The Panama Deception: Exposing the Cover Up! (1992)

Keith Wheelock (Raritan Valley Community College)

Extraordinary "underground" documentary that provides persuasive evidence, despite Pentagon denials, that perhaps 2,000-to-4,000 Panamanian civilians were killed in what the Pentagon described as a "surgical strike" to get General Noriega, who had long been on CIA's payroll. The reasons why the U.S. launched the attack seem unclear, though Noriega’s thugs had killed one U. S. officer and manhandled other officials. With this attack, President Bush's shed his "wimp" image.
