The Life and Times of the Shah

Gholam R. Afkhami

University of California Press

After Khomeini had decreed that those who had worked with the shah were ipso facto guilty, the shah and his family went from place to place and were treated as hostages. The shah probably never knew how close he had come to being kept in Panama. A war had begun between the White House and the State Department over the shah's destination. President Carter was dead set against the shah going to Egypt; Secretary Vance and his people were dead set against his going to the United States; General Torrijos was eager to carve his name in history by keeping the shah in his power. On 22 March 1980, Lloyd Cutler and Hamilton Jordan called the president to inform him that the shah seemed determined to leave Panama. The collective decision for the shah to stay in Egypt frustrated Carter.
