U.S. To Lose Military Base In Afghanistan

BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) — The U.S. may be about to lose its lease on an airbase key to supplying coalition military operations in Afghanistan. Kyrgyzstan has voted to end the United States' lease on the Manas Transit Center in June of next year. The U.S. had expected to retain use of the base at higher rent than the $60 million it now pays. All U.S. troops moving in and out of Afghanistan travel through Manas.
