Offers observations on the trial of Panamanian leader General Manuel Noriega in the United States on charges of drug trafficking. Jury selection for the trial; Receipt of U.S. aid by Noriega during the period in which he was building his drug empire, which appears to sanction his actions; Claim of President George Bush that he had no prior knowledge of Ortega's activities, which is herein characterized as false because of Bush's positions within the Central Intelligence Agency and the administration of former Preasident Ronald Reagan; Suggestion that the complicity of the Bush and Reagan administrations in Noriega's drug activities is expressly opposed to the stated aims of national security and the promotion of democracy abroad.
