Chatper 10 Summary and Analysis

John is sent to Panama and mets Omar Torrijos, the president, who did not want to be a puppet leader for the United States. His peple loved him and he cared about the poor and dispossessed. Torrijos saw an independent Panama, free of both capitalist and communist intervention. He forbid the United States from having a branch of the School of the Americas because he thought the school taught the oppression of poor people. The biggest problem the United States had with Torrijos was his desire for Panama to control the Canal. John was in Panama to essentially talk the President into accepting development plans that would lead Panama into huge debt.
