The author of Divorcing the Dictator: America’s Bungled Affair with Noriega discussed the book. Kempe’s theme is that the U.S. started the relationship in 1960 without thinking of the consequences. "The United States created the problem that we later had to correct with an invasion." He discussed researching Noriega’s early childhood and getting access to the Panamanian dictator’s inner circle. Kempe compared his book to the book Our Man In Panama, written by John Dinges, that was published at the same time. Both were published shortly after the December 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama. close
