The USA's soldiers raided, ransacked, shut down, and arrested the personnel of every organization in Panama critical of the USA's invasion.� The USA's military immediately took over the television stations in Panama and began broadcasting their own programming.� The puppet government leaders that the USA installed upon invading drew up lists of people and groups who truly advocated democracy in Panama and who might be politically opposed to the puppet regime.� The American military rounded up thousands of people on those lists and threw them into prison, sometimes for years, with no charges ever filed.� The people who received that treatment were college professors, newspaper editors, union leaders, human rights activists, etc.� In essence, all the truly democratic leaders in Panama were imprisoned.� George Bush the First had the audacity to say his invasion "restored democracy" in Panama.� As Bush uttered those words, our politicians in Washington gave him a standing ovation.
