Please note, in the text that follows there will be references to spook numbers contained in Wikipedia, a way of messaging one another that we outsiders are not supposed to understand. The numbers they use have significance to them, and are often expressed in many ways. “33”, for instance, a widely used one, can be expressed as 3+3, or 6, 3*3, or 9, or 3^3, 27. Other numbers that seem to recur are 8, 22, 11, 47 (perhaps just another way to say 11), 77 (always watch out for terrorist events on July 7), and 555. In reading over the Wikipedia pages regarding Noriega and Milken, these numbers appeared frequently and out of sequence.

We are told that he ran cocaine during this time, and that the CIA was aware of it, but found him otherwise useful and so overlooked his activities. Here’s Wikipedia:
