As the agency’s top lawyer he observed an organization evolve from intelligence gatherer to terrorist killer. He draws on previously undisclosed stories in his new memoir "Company Man: Thirty Years of Controversy And Crisis In The CIA"

John Rizzo Joins us to talk about his new book.

No. I'm a lawyer, and torture is legally defined in U.S. law. If I had concluded -- or, more importantly, if the Justice Department had concluded -- that these techniques constitute torture, we would never have done them. So I can't say they were torture. I didn't concede it was torture then, and I don't concede that it's torture now.
