AG Holder to Visit Gitmo Monday
Attorney General Eric Holder will visit Guantanamo Monday.
"We need to have our feet on the ground to really see what is going on down at the facility to see how people are being detained, to talk to people down there about the interrogation techniques that are being used," Holder said. "I think that will be an important first step as we try to resolve the issues that the president has put before me as the chairman of those review committees."
Hopefully, he'll talk to some of the detainees, and not just the interrogators. He could also talk to some of their defense lawyers without even leaving D.C.
And how's this for a dumb way to end a news article? "After 2 weeks on the job, Holder is maintaining his rock star status."
