The United States is "relatively close" to making decisions on what to do with an initial group of Guantanamo Bay detainees, US Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday. Holder spoke to The Associated Press during a flight to London, the first of several stops where he will visit with European leaders to discuss terrorism, drugs, and cyber-crime. The attorney general did not say how much longer he thought it would take to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba. Before officials can meet US President Barack Obama's January deadline, the US must first decide which detainees to put on trial and which to release to the US or other countries. Holder said the first step is to decide how many total detainees will be set free.
