Noriega update

The Associated Press has an update on Manuel Noriega. Next week a federal appeals court will hear his argument about why he should be sent to Panama (where was already convicted in absentia for murder, embezzlement, and corruption) rather than France, which wants him for money laundering.

He is also working on his memoirs, which should give us, shall we say, a unique version of events. Coincidentally, I had recently been looking at Anastasio Somoza's memoir, Nicaragua Betrayed. There I learned that Somoza had always tried to protect his political opponents, and just could not figure out why they ended up dead.
