Ecuador leader to oust U.S.

Pres­i­dent-elect Rafael Cor­rea has promised to oust the United States from an Ecuado­ran air base in the coastal city of Manta as soon as an agree­ment ex­pires in 2009. The United States’ “for­ward op­er­at­ing lo­ca­tion” has been in use since 2000 to fly anti-drug mis­sions that helped to seize about 249 met­ric tons of co­caine in 2006.
