Former CIA general counsel John Rizzo, photographed in his home in Washington, D.C., April 15, 2014, was the main architect of the harsh interrogation techniques used against terror detainees at secret black sites around the world from 2002 through 2008. As the CIA's former top law who vetted the controversial program, he rejects leaked findings of a four-year Senate Intelligence Committee probe that the rough interrogations went beyond rules set by the Justice Department and produced little useful intelligence from detainees.
