Abstract:

In 1975, fresh out of law school and working a numbing job at the Treasury Department, Rizzo took 'a total shot in the dark' and sent his resume to the Central Intelligence Agency. He had no notion that more than thirty years later, after serving under eleven CIA directors and seven Presidents, he would become a notorious public figure - a symbol and victim of the toxic winds swirling in post-9/11 Washington. From approval of the rules governing waterboarding and other 'enhanced interrogation techniques' to serving as the point person answering for the Iran Contra scandal, John Rizzo witnessed and participated in virtually all of the significant operations of the CIA's modern history.
