January 3, 1990, the former president of Panama, Manuel Noriega surrendered to the US Army. Panama was invaded by US forces on December 20, 1989. President George H.W. Bush cited Noriega’s involvement in drug trafficking as one of the leading reasons for the invasion. This viewpoint was challenged later in the Academy Award winning documentary, “Panama Deception”.
