New York Daily News columnist Zev Chafets, in an article titled “How the Israelis Are Helping U.S. Fight Terror War,” asserts that Israeli counterintelligence has offered polygraph support to the FBI. Excerpt:
…Shin Bet, Israel’s counterintelligence organization, has offered to provide the FBI with operatives who can speak Arabic and Farsi, and can administer and decipher polygraph tests in those languages.
A similar offer was accepted by the French government several years ago after a spate of terror bombings in Paris subways. The FBI, however, is sidestepping a firm answer on the issue by saying it’s only interested in U.S. citizens — a category that includes some Israelis.
