Attorney General Eric Holder listened quietly to tales of torture, execution and palace intrigue this morning as he toured the Tower of London.

The tower, a historic torture site, is standard fare for tourists, but one loaded with extra meaning for Holder as he considers the disposition of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

On the flight to London, Holder told The Associated Press the United States is "relatively close" to making decisions on what to do with an initial group of detainees.

London is the first of several stops where he will visit with European leaders to discuss terrorism, drugs, and cyber-crime.

The Obama administration is trying to strengthen European ties after years of alienation during the Bush administration.
