The former deputy manager of the 2008 presidential campaign of John McCain and a decorated U.S. military officer were allegedly the subjects of illegal wiretapping ordered by Panama's ex-president Ricardo Martinelli, according to a former Panamanian official involved in the spy program.

Ferry worked on the McCain campaign and was an advisor to the 2014 presidential campaign of Panama's president Juan Carlos Varela in 2014. He also managed the 2016 presidential campaign of Senator Lindsay Graham.

2. The Tapes

Ever wonder what Noriega had on Poppy Bush? Lot of high ranking folks used Panama for some good ol' cavortin' and snortin' and generally acting like bad bad boys. And Noriega was alleged to have a lot of it on tape. It's why he just had to go.
