By giving the Panama Canal back to Panama, the Soviets could have easily used Cuba to conquer and sieze the canal. If the Soviets had control over the canal then they could set up bombing bases in the Pacfic without any conflit of passage.

Jimmy Carter gave it back to Panama.

- not so much. The controversy over Jimmy Carter and the Panama Canal is whether or not Carter should have agreed to give the Panama canal back to Panama. The reason it's controversial is because what could be happening right now in the canal. The canal could very well become taken over by soviets and used as a location to create an atomic bomb, and we can't do anything about it.

President Jimmy Carter, although the USA really created the nation of Panama to get the canal in the first place, so President Jimmy Carter was actually doing the right thing when he gave Panama the right to control something that was built on their land in the first place. Panama still allows the USA to have a say in how the canal is run.

Jimmy Carter signed the Panama Canal Treaty and the Neutrality Treaty on September 7, 1977. This assured Panama of the return of the canal starting by December 31, 1999.

Panama owns the Panama Canal. Because of the Torrijos Carter Treaties. Signed by Jimmy Carter and Omar Torrijos of Panama on September 7, 1977, this started the process of granting the Panamanians free control of the Canal so long as Panama signed a treaty guaranteeing the permanent neutrality of the Canal. The treaty led to full Panamanian control effective from noon on December 31, 1999, and the Panama Canal Authority assumed command of the canal.

On 7 September 1977, U.S. President Jimmy Carter signed the Torrijos-Carter Treaty, which set in motion the process of handing over the canal to Panamanian control. The treaty came into force on 31 December 1999, since then the canal has been run by the Panama Canal Authority or the Autoridad de Canal de Panama

No. The Panama Canal belongs to Panama since December 31, 1999. It used to be owned by the US until president Jimmy Carter and Panama's military leader Omar Torrijos singed a treaty to give the territory to Panama

Some important decisions President Carter made are returning the Panama Canal to Panama and the creation of two new departments: The Department of Education and the Department of Energy, among others.
