The USA's mili tary tried covering up its mass murders as best it could.� In echoes of the crematoria at Auschwitz, the military apparently bulldozed bodies into piles on the beaches and had bonfires, trying to destroy the bodies and then dump the remnants into the ocean.� They took over the hospitals and morgues and seized their records and detained doctors and the hospital staff.� There were ten doctors on duty at Santo Tom�s Hospital on December 20, 1989.� Nine of them were fired, arrested, or driven into hiding.� The Red Cross was denied access to El Chorrillo for several days.� America’s military heroes were not able to destroy all evidence of their mass murders.� Months after the invasion, while the Pentagon was still saying with a straight face that only 250 civilians had died, mass graves were unearthed in Panama.� Fifteen mass graves were discovered, and one more Big Lie of the USA's government was exposed.� As the mass graves were exhumed, the victims in them gave mute testimony to what kind of invasion really happened in Panama.� There were victims with bullet holes in the backs of their skulls, victims with their wrists tied together, victims in their 70s, teenagers, victims wearing casts on their arms and legs, etc. [272] The American pe ople cheered the invasion, Manual Noriega was transformed into public enemy number one, and America wanted him brought to "justice."� Invading a nation to apprehend their head of state, for crimes that he supposedly committed, is an act nearly without precedence in world history.� It was a flagrant violation of all international law, condemned by the United Nations and throughout the world.� The American people easily swallowed the rationale of invading Panama to apprehend Noriega.� In exasperation, the scholar Jos� de Jes�s Mart�nez said that it was hard to believe "how Americans can be so stupid" as to believe the rationale that they were fed regarding Panama's invasion.� The USA had ample opportunities to apprehend its employee before the invasion.� Why did the USA invade Panama?� The proximate reason appears to be the same one why America attacked Iraq.� The dictator became a little too independent.� Jimmy Carter considered himself the "human rights" president.� Compared to other presidents of his generation, he was.� That is relative, however.� The people of East Timor, El Salvador, South Korea, and elsewhere may have a different opinion of Carter, but his administration was gentle compared to the Reagan-Bush or Johnson-Nixon-Ford years.� Carter signed an agreement in 1977 with Torrijos to give the Canal Zone's control back to Panama in 1999.� My militaristic father bewailed in sorrow when Carter signed the agreement, as did many right wingers around America.� Ronald Reagan campaigned for president on the issue that we paid for the Panama Canal and it was ours.
