Clarification: Kyrgyzstan-US Base story

In a story Dec. 21, The Associated Press reported U.S. claims that its Manas Transit Center in Kyrgyzstan has contributed more than $1.4 billion to the Central Asian nation's economy in the last 10 years. The figure comes from a statement by the transit center, not from U.S. Ambassador Pamela Spratlen, who is mentioned later in the story.
