This documentary details the case that the 1989 invasion of Panama by the US was motivated not by the need to protect American soldiers, restore democracy or even capture Noriega. It was to force Panama to submit the will of the United States after Noriega had exhausted his usefulness. Written by

Not to say that Farenheit 9/11 was bad as it was indeed a quality film, but if you saw and enjoyed, the 2004 blockbuster documentary (or just want to watch a great and enlightening film), then I would strongly recommend The Panama Deception. Firstly, from watching The Panama Deception, I realized that Fahrenheit 9/11 was not as groundbreaking as it may have first seemed as the former questioned and dissected the official version of a US foreign war 12 years before the latter was released. And The Panama Deception further supersedes Fahrenheit 9/11 in exposing Corporate Media's role in propagating White House lies. Although Fahrenheit 9/11 also does the above, The Panama Deceptions' presentation of big media is far more truthfully eerie, having the effect of showcasing the sham of selling of a illegitimate war to the American public. If you want to learn more about the history of the Bushes (as Bush 41 was pres. during the invasion of Panama) lying to the American people, then check out The Panama Deception.
