Is the United States about to lose control of its secretive Diego Garcia military base?

(CNN)The secretive Diego Garcia military base may be 1,000 miles from the nearest continent, but it has all the trappings of a modern American town.

The troops here can dine on burgers at Jake's Place, enjoy a nine-hole golf course, go bowling or sink a cold beer at one of several bars. The local command has nicknamed the base the "Footprint of Freedom."

But while cars here drive on the right side of the road, this is not American soil: It is, in fact, a remote remnant of the British Empire.
