Today in infamy - fast boat to china edition

On this day in 1999 the United States turned control of the Panama Canal over to the government of Panama, the country from which it was stolen. There is still no word on when Panama is to be returned to Colombia.

One might ask how this anniversary affects the race for the US Presidency in 2008. That is still unclear but I do know that at least one Republican hopeful was against it at the time.
