Earlier this year, former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega died quietly in Panama City ending a life marked by fantastic highs and lows.
Noriega was Panamanian military officer and CIA informant who let greed get the best of him.
He cast his lot with Colombian drug lords flooding their cocaine into the United States.
The George H.W. Bush administration had enough of their former partner and client and ordered an invasion of Panama to snatch Noriega.
He surrendered after two weeks, stood trial in the United States, and served 17 years of a 30-year sentence before being released for good behavior.
