Watch The Panama Deception
- 1 hr 31 min
This is an American documentary detailing actions of the United States during its 1989 invasion of Panama, purportedly to dethrone dictator, General Manuel Noriega. It portrays the U.S. media coverage of the invasion as being biased and complicit with the government because of events that were either incorrectly reported or unreported. According to co-director Barbara Trent, the real reason for the invasion was to regain control of the canal after President Jimmy Carter returned it to Panama in a 1977 treaty that would become effective in 2000. Footage shows gruesome scenes never reported in the United States.
