  • Peter Strzok Failed His Polygraph Yet Retained Security Clearance and Position (Trunc)

    Validating Paul Sperry’s tweet. Yes, FBI Agent Peter Strzok failed his polygraph and his supervisors were notified on January 16th, 2016, his results were “out of scope“. Meaning he failed his polygraph test. Yet he was never removed from any responsibilities; and against dept policy, he did not have his clearance revoked until he could clear.

  • Seneca County OKs polygraph testing

    WATERLOO - Polygraph testing will soon be used to help supervise and treat local sex offenders. The Seneca County Board of Supervisors unanimously agreed Tuesday to contract with Michael Schank, owner of New York State Polygraph Service of Himrod, to provide the exams under the supervision of the county Probation Department, which will work in conjunction with the Mental Health Department. The service was recommended by the Public Safety & Jail Construction Committee Nov. 28 as a part of the county's new comprehensive sexual offender treatment program. The initial suggestion came from William Kelly, a licensed clinical social worker under...

  • Was CIA Director Brennan's 1976 Vote for a Communist Just a Youthful Indiscretion?

    During a panel discussion Thursday at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference, CIA Director John Brennan was trying to make the point that just because an individual has an “activist” background, that wouldn’t, or shouldn’t, keep him from working for the federal government in sensitive positions. After all, he said, the CIA hired him even after he admitted voting for a communist in the 1976 presidential elections.In 1980, Brennan was trying to obtain a top security clearance for the Central Intelligence Agency, and part of the process involved taking a lie detector test. He was asked: “Have you ever...

    For at least the second time since 2012, the federal government has brought criminal charges, accusing someone of training people on how to beat a polygraph test. On Friday, prosecutors announced an indictment against Douglas G. Williams, a 69-year-old man from Norman, Okla., who’s accused of coaching people “how to lie and conceal crimes” during federally administered lie-detector tests. Mr. Williams, who operates a company called, says the mail fraud and obstruction of justice charges leveled against him are an “attack on his First Amendment rights.” The indictment follows the federal prosecution of an Indiana man who received eight...

    CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret. CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency's Benghazi...

Their newest police chief, Shane Sullivan, is using a polygraph test to clean up the town’s image and keep bigots off his force. COOPERTOWN, Tenn. — A police chief hired to rebuild a tiny Tennessee department dismantled by scandal is using a lie-detector test to keep racists off his force.

    White House threatens polygraphs for leakersBy Jeremy Herb - 06/25/12 08:20 PM ET Officials at the CIA, FBI and other intelligence agencies will be given expanded polygraph tests under a new Obama administration directive aimed at stamping out national-security leaks. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, on Monday announced a series of steps intended to stop the leaks after a furious backlash from Congress over news reports that revealed closely guarded secrets. The most significant measure is the addition of a new question to the polygraph tests that are used by intelligence agencies. Officials will be asked during the...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Yet another appeal denied, Troy Davis was left with little to do Tuesday but wait to be executed for a murder he insists he did not commit. He lost his most realistic chance to avoid lethal injection on Tuesday, when Georgia's pardons board rejected his appeal for clemency. As his scheduled 7 p.m. Wednesday execution neared, his backers resorted to far-fetched measures. They asked prisons officials to let him to take a polygraph test; urged prison workers to strike or call in sick; asked prosecutors to block the execution and they even considered a desperate appeal for...

    Politics: President Obama hit a new low in using a recess appointment to name Maria del Carmen Aponte as U.S. envoy to El Salvador. The radical has consorted with Cuban spies but will be taking no questions. Dismissing three congressional holds on Aponte's ambassadorial confirmation as "playing politics," Obama used his vacation to slip Aponte through to represent the U.S. to the strategic Central American country, without a vote in Congress. That gives Aponte, a campaign contributor aligned to the immigration lobby, access to top-secret information as a political reward. But Aponte's past is one big red flag. From 1982...

    The amount of cholesterol circulating in the bloodstream is partly regulated by the brain, a study in mice suggests. It counters assumptions that levels are solely controlled by what we eat and by cholesterol production in the liver. The US study in Nature Neuroscience found that a hunger hormone in the brain acts as the "remote control" for cholesterol travelling round the body.Too much cholesterol causes hardened fatty arteries, raising the risk of a heart attack. The research carried out by a US team at the University of Cincinnati found that increased levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin in mice...

    Like many Americans, you might deem the information below "yawnworthy." If, however, you're interested in ensuring that our nation's Departments of Defense and Homeland Security are equipped with the best possible tools to fight the War on Terror, you'll be interested in what happens in states like Washington where a push is being waged to keep the best tools out of the hands of the state's law enforcement professionals.

    So why wasn't I surprised to read in an article that Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair told members of the House Intelligence Committee yesterday he is tasking an elite U.S. interrogation unit -- an interagency group of top interrogators dubbed the "High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group" -- with conducting "scientific research" to find better ways of questioning top suspected terrorists when one already exists? Because Director Blair is either being kept in the dark about the existence of this non-polygraph technology or he's part of what appears to be a coordinated effort by individuals within the federal government to prevent...

    James Chapman was as distraught as any patriotic American about seven CIA operatives in Afghanistan being killed in an explosion set off by a double-agent Dec. 31. The 67-year-old Marine Corps veteran made it clear that he hated to see our nation's security compromised the way it was Christmas Day when a 23-year-old Nigerian man, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, attempted to take down Northwest Airlines Flight 253 with a bomb as it approached Detroit. While many would find it difficult to recognize anything positive in those two recent security breakdowns that prompted a presidential news conference Thursday, Chapman sees opportunity. He...

    SEATTLE -- Science is becoming a more important part of catching a killer or terrorist and keeping the innocent out of jail. A Seattle neuroscientist is leading the way with technology based on a simple fact: your brain can't lie. An odd looking headband, flashing words on a computer screen, and a couple clicks of a mouse could be the secret to putting a murderer behind bars. "It's a game changer in the field of global security," said Dr. Larry Farwell, Chairman of Brain Fingerprinting Labs who developed "brain fingerprinting" - a lie detector test for the 21st century.

Dr. Ivins, his colleagues said, argued that al Qaeda was responsible. "He was very passionate about this," former boss Jeffrey Adamovicz said. "He was very agitated." In these conversations, Dr. Ivins dwelled at one point on a purported link between Florida victim Robert Stevens, a photographer for American Media, and an apartment rented to 9/11 ringleader...
