Eric Holder is very likely to be confirmed on Monday as Attorney General by the full U.S. Senate after yesterday gaining approval by the Senate Judiciary Committee by a 17-2 vote. He will be the first African American to head the Department of Justice in U.S. history. Holder will be the top legal official responsible for dealing with a variety of complex legal issues that confront the Obama administration. He will have to hit the ground running when he starts his new job due to a highly unusual request from the Mayor of London. On January 26, Mayor Boris Johnson publicly requested President Obama drop all charges by the Department of Justice against a British computer hacker seeking UFO files.
