Holder: 30 Gitmo Detainees Released

The United States has cleared 30 Guantanamo Bay detainees for release, according to Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder was in Germany as he tours Europe petitioning European leaders for help in relocating the detainees as President Obama prepares to shutter the prison. Holder also said that the Justice Department might cooperate with an investigation of Bush officials by a foreign government. “Obviously, we would look at any request that would come from a court in any country and see how and whether we should comply with it,” Holder said. “This is an administration that is determined to conduct itself by the rule of law and to the extent that we receive lawful requests from an appropriately created court, we would obviously respond to it.”
