Howard Air Force Base
at the Panama Canal
Please take a few minutes to read this letter.
It is not too late. You can still do something personally to get
America back in to Panama and get Red China out.
By December 31, 1999, with Congress and the White House having failed to
act, the last of our U.S. military bases in Panama had been surrendered.
A Hong Kong-based company closely linked to the Red Chinese government had
gained control of the two crucial container ports on the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the
Canal, as well as certain nearby facilities.
Now, despite the intent even of those who supported the 1978
Carter/Torrijos treaties, those former U.S. military facilities could soon belong, not
to the Panamanians, but to foreign governments and corporations, including some in China
This must not be allowed to happen.
I have traveled to Panama twice in recent months -- I was there in
mid-December when Jimmy Carter, David Rockefeller, and Sol Linowitz ceremonially handed
the Canal and Zone over to the Panamanians, and I returned again in February to meet
with key officials in charge of the bidding process which will determine the future of the
former U.S. bases -- military assets which are worth literally billions of dollars.
It is now one of my top priorities to persuade you and other patriotic
Americans to consider bidding on those U.S. military bases to help make sure that our
nation's enemies do not gain direct control of them.
Please review the materials on this site and let me know if you have an
interest concerning bidding at the auctions of the U.S. military facilities.
