Trivia

As one of President Obama's first official acts, he signed Executive Order 13491, which restricted all government agencies to lawful interrogation approaches used by the Military and required that the International Committee of the Red Cross be granted access to detainees held in U.S. custody. This executive order, which effectively banned the CIA program, was codified into federal law by the McCain-Feinstein Anti-Torture Amendment of 2015, which passed in the Senate with an overwhelming bi-partisan vote.
