Manuel Antonio Noriega (born February 11, 1934) is the former Panamanian general and the military dictator of Panama, serving from 1983-1989. Ad the US found that Noriega had contacts with drug dealers, George H.W. Bush started an intervention to overthrow Noriega. After this Noriega was arrested in a prison in Miami. He was sentenced for 60 years in prison for Corruption and murdering of political opponents.[1] At the time of his removal from power, as many as 93% of Panama's citizens supported American military action. He took refuge in the Vatican embassy. The US military played loud rock music to get him to leave. During an unspecified AC/DC song, Noriega surrendered. As of 2014, he remains in prison.
