About 30 detainees currently held at Guantanamo Bay have been cleared for release, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday, as he tried to persuade European allies to take some of them. Meeting with reporters in Germany, Holder also signaled the Obama administration might cooperate with a Spanish investigation of former Bush administration officials over the treatment of terror suspects. Holder spoke ahead of a speech appealing for Europe's help in closing Guantanamo.
