Petraeus backs closing Guantanamo, limits on harsh interrogation

In an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," the top commander for Iraq and Afghanistan says interrogations that conform to the Army Field Manual avoid possile abuses that serve only to recruit more forces for the enemy and that the memory of such incidents never goes away. He said he continued to support closing Guantanamo in a "pragmatic and sensible manner."
