Holder: Mixed record on national security issues

FILE - This June 6, 2013, file photo shows U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, where Holder denied that the Obama administration is killing suspected terrorists with drone strikes to avoid capturing them and sending them to the Guantanamo prison it wants to close. Holder, who announced Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014, that he would step down once a successor is confirmed, took office determined to turn the page from Bush administration policies that authorized harsh interrogation techniques against suspected terrorists. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Eric Holder was just months into the job when he announced plans to prosecute the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks and other alleged co-conspirators in a New York courtroom, rather than through the Guantanamo Bay military commission process.
