US LOOKS AT SINGAPORE FOR POSSIBLE BASES
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is studying a classified report on the feasibility of establishing US bases in Singapore, a State Department official says. The report, compiled by a technical military team that visited the tiny Asian city-state in June, was submitted to the chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other government agencies, a department official who spoke on condition of anonymity said Monday.
State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said the United States and Singapore ``have been discussing the possibility of greater security cooperation for some time. ... We've made no decisions.''
