WASHINGTON - Eric Holder Jr. has told his confirmation hearing that the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba will be closed. But he says it won't be easy.
The nominee for attorney general said Thursday the key question is what to do with the prisoners.
Holder also said he and Barack Obama are disturbed by what they've heard about harsh interrogation techniques.
