The CIA spokesman is referring to Executive Order 13491 Ensuring Lawful Interrogations. It revokes Executive Order 13440 from the Bush era.
Sec. 4. Prohibition of Certain Detention Facilities, and Red Cross Access to Detained Individuals.
(a) CIA Detention. The CIA shall close as expeditiously as possible any detention facilities that it currently operates and shall not operate any such detention facility in the future.
