ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the United States' security related concerns in Panama Canal. Panama's ruling general, Manuel Antonio Noriega, and the airing of his many categories of criminal activity pose a serious challenge to the U.S. President Ronald Reagan Administration. It can no longer openly back Noriega; in fact, it has felt obliged to engage in a public display of opposition. Nevertheless, given the stories that the drug-dealing general has yet to tell, he could hardly be left alive and with nothing left to lose in his relations with the U.S. Nor would precedent suggest that the U.S. is apt to leave the resolution of the current legitimacy crisis and the future direction of Panamanian politics to the discretion of the Panamanians.
