“FBI Faulted for Ignoring Warnings”

Washington Post staff writers David A. Vise and Dan Eggen discuss FBI security in the wake of the Hanssen spy scandal:

Congressional panels, inspectors general, interagency task forces, blue-ribbon commissions and other repeatedly warned the FBI that it needed more frequent lie detector tests like those now used by the CIA…

Vise and Eggen also note:

Freeh and other bureau officials have specifically opposed the widespread use of polygraph tests because they believe the tests are inaccurate.

If that’s what Louis Freeh really believes, then then he should scrap FBI’s pre-employment polygraph screening program, which he introduced.
