SAFE CONDUCT PASS

"This pass is for use by PDF, Dignity Battalion and Codepadi members.
The bearer of this pass upon presenting it
to any US military member, will be guaranteed safe passage
to US facilities that will provide medical attention,
food, and shelter."

PSYOP safe conduct passes proved to be very successful during Operational Just Cause. These leaflets were dropped by helicopter on targets of opportunity and on locations identified by PSYOP personnel.It is interesting to note that General Marc Cisneros, Commanding General, US Army South signed the leaflets and not General Thurman, the Commander-in-Chief (CINC) Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) or Lieutenant General Stiner, the Commander for Joint Task Force South. General Cisneros was well known among the Panamanian forces and therefore was expected to have greater credibility with the target audience.
