Fact of the Day: Manuel Noriega

Manuel Noriega was a military commander who eventually became the dictator of Panama during the 1980's due to the help of the American CIA. Outside of his military career, Noriega was a notable criminal (big into narcotics) but the CIA still helped and even employed him. Noriega proved to be too much of a headache for America, so they eventually deposed him and sent him to American prison for the crimes he committed in the past.
