Less than three hours after U.S. troops began their invasion here Dec. 20, American officials were told where fugitive Panamanian dictator Manuel A. Noriega was hiding but disregarded the information, according to a European diplomat who made the call. "In the third hour of the attack," the diplomat said, "he was two houses down (from the diplomat's home), in the flat of Vicki's grandmother" in a high-rise structure called Edificio Winston Churchill.

In most of the fragmented conversations, the former Panamanian dictator does little but listen and say yes.
