Shooting the Moon

The True Story Of An American Manhunt Unlike Any Other, Ever

By David Harris, 1946-

In the summer of 1985, General Manuel Antonio Noriega, the legendary Panama strongman, was just one of hundreds of potential suspects identified at the ground level in the daily combat in the Drug War raging around Miami, down where the Drug Enforcement Agencys rubber met the road. How it came to pass that 20,000 soldiers would be sent to invade Panama, grab the General and haul him back to the U.S., is one of the wilder, and least known stories in modern history up to now. This is, after all, the only time in its 225 year history that the United States has captured a world leader and tried him for violations of American lawviolations committed on that rulers own native turf.
