Remember Manuel Noriega?

By Debbie Schlussel
Time flies. Manuel Noriega, the former Panamanian dictator captured by U.S. soldiers in 1989 and convicted of federal drug charges, is set to be released from a Florida prison on September 9th. He served 18 years of a 30-year sentence but is scheduled to get out because of parole and time off his sentence for good behavior.
I recall that to capture him, our soldiers initially played loud heavy metal music, which now qualifies as torture when it’s played for Islamic terrorists who prefer the “music” of gurgling from Nick Berg videos. And I wonder why the ACLU wasn’t screaming and yelling about the musical entertainment we provided for Noriega.
Will Noriega get out and go to a quiet retirement? Or will he be extradited to other countries to face more charges from foreign governments?

France reportedly plans to file an extradition request to force Noriega to serve time there for moving Colombian drug money through Panama to French banks. And Panama wants Noriega to serve multiple prison terms for killings of a criti and ten leaders of a failed coup.

Should be interesting to see where he squirreled his money away once he gets out. I am betting the backstabbing French have a big portion of it as well as the Panamanian aristocracy; hence the hypocritical call for his head. We should let him go and follow the money.

I thought they didn’t have parole in the federal system. Why is he getting out so early?

PNAMARBLE:
Roman Polanski has a passport under a different Polish name; he has visited the US without detection at least once. Thanks to the overwhelming numbers of visitors into the U.S. we haven’t caught him- yet.
France is like a spoiled child, we only pretend to consider their position. We will jail the dirtbag within a few years.

Arrogant overpaid sports stars have been a problem since the Ancient Marathon days, probably before. Much of the problem is that fans express their yearning to worship someone/thing so persistently and loudly, and back it with so much fast cash, that the pre-mature brains of young bucks are swept into a kind of dreamland where they can do no wrong. But it’s boring without boundaries, so they push to find them. And it all comes back to the fan(atic)s.
