Political Cartoon - US Ambassador Goes To PRD Party Headquarters

PoliticsBy DON WINNER for - On Friday, 24 September 2010, the new US Ambassador to Panama, Phyllis Marie Powers, visited the headquarters of the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD) and met with the party's leadership. Anything that can even remotely be interpreted as meddling in internal Panamanian politics by the US ambassador in Panama always draws intense attention and scrutiny, and Powers' visit to the PRD headquarters had many scratching their heads. Today this political cartoon appeared in the La Estrella newspaper. It shows Ambassador Powers walking through the door of the PRD party headquarters. Inside are the the PRD Secretary General Mitchell Doens and party President Francisco Sánchez Cárdenas. They both run away as Doens says "the Gringa ambassador is coming - Hide Pedro Miguel..." in a reference to Pedro Miguel Gonzalez who remains wanted by the United States of America, indicted as a terrorist in the politically motivated assassination of US Army Sergeant Zak Hernandez.
