“[T]he infamous ‘torture memo‘ of August 1, 2002… formed part of the legal basis for what President Bush later confirmed were ‘alternative’ interrogation procedures used at secret locations on Abu Zubaydah, a top al Qaeda operative; Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the al Qaeda mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks; and other ‘key architects of the September 11th’ and other terrorist attacks.”

 – Jack Goldsmith, The Terror Presidency, Pages 142-143
