Answer

Manuel Noriega was the leader of Panama that Giroldi tried to overthrow. Noriega had been a CIA asset since the 1960s, but he had become increasingly independent and authoritarian. Giroldi and a group of other Panamanian officers attempted to overthrow Noriega in October 1989, but the coup failed and Giroldi was executed.
