Manuel Noriega was the military dictator of Panama. For many years he was paid to help the CIA in their South and Central American shenanigans. He was brutal and thuggish.

When Noriega turned against the CIA, President George Bush the First, who had once been Noriega's CIA handler, made an example of him for anyone who might think about double-crossing the CIA (or George Bush). The United States invaded Panama (major military feat!), arrested Noriega, took him back to the U.S. and put him in Jail on drug charges. Let that be a lesson to you, leaders of other countries who piss off a Bush (see Saddam Hussein). [1]
