U.S. gets Kyrgyzstan air base lease extended

Kyrgyzstan's interim leader told the Associated Press in an exclusive interview Tuesday that her government will extend for a year the lease of a U.S. air base key to the war in Afghanistan, and guarantee the deposed president's safety if he steps down and leaves the country.

The ousted ruler said he is willing to step down but he also wants immunity for his family and close circle as a condition to resign - an argument that could block a deal to transfer power and increase the turmoil gripping the Central Asian nation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That bit about the lease extension must be having the folks in the Pentagon heaving a collective sigh of relief, but things here could still get dicey.
