more Ecuador: New Constitution Would Ban U.S. Military Post

Go to New York Times original
A United States military post in Ecuador, considered an important drug-interdiction center, would be banned under the country’s new constitution, which faces a referendum this year. President Rafael Correa has said that he will not renew the United States’ lease for the Pacific port of Manta when it expires in late 2009. The surveillance flights the United States runs out of the base are responsible for much of the antinarcotics effort for the eastern Pacific.
