During his time as the Acting General Counsel after 9/11, [Rizzo] requested the famous "Torture Memo" from the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) at the Department of Justice, in which OLC Head Jay Bybee expressed the opinion that waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques ("EITs") were not prohibited under U.S. law...
