Is learning to beat the polygraph a crime?
George W. Maschke, AntiPolygraph.org,
A document published today by the Center for Investigative Reporting includes
details of a criminal investigation into ten applicants for employment with
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who allegedly received "sophisticated
polygraph Countermeasure training." CBP refused to respond to any of
AntiPolygraph.org's questions, including whether CBP considers it a crime
to provide or receive instruction in polygraph countermeasures:
AntiPolygraph.org has been providing information about polygraph countermeasures
to the public for over a decade, most notably in our free book, The Lie Behind
the Lie Detector:
It would be nice to know if CBP or any other federal agency construes providing
or receiving such information as a crime.
