In reference to the manual on the U.S. Department of Justice webiste.
I did not look at Mawsu'at al-jihad, it is probably in arabic.

I came by your board by accident, and have sat in my office enthralled by the discussion rather than getting on my with work.  I am not a US citizen, I am Scottish, but am still intrigued by the comments of your supposed 'Patriots'.

To accuse George W. Maschke of treason for publishing an English language version of the advice given to foreign terrorists is hardly reasonable or logical.  Fevered nonsense such as this only serves to diminish the credibility of the accusers.  It is quite, quite clear that the pro-polygraph lobby feel they have some inalienable right to the moral high-ground of patriotism.  Bunkum. 

I note that no-one has stated precisely why this publication would assist any enemy, although it is obvious why its publication would irk those who have some personal, professional or pecuiary interest in the continued use of this obviously medieval technology.  You should all note that I say this is someone who has no vested interest at all in the effectiveneess of polygraphy. 

From my detached position I would have to say that those who wish to caution against reliance on a method of intelligence gathering which the enemy can, quite clearly, use to its own advantage, are the true patriots. 

It may interest you to know that polygraph tests are held in as much esteem in the UK as stage magic and miracle cures.

Indeed -- well-put.  It is instructive that the polygraph lobby, which so frequently claims the information in TLBTLD is bogus, claimed "treason" when translated versions of al Qaeda's information on the polygraph were posted -- information that, in part, agrees with that in TLBTLD.  If bogus, then al Qaeda's information must be useless.  Clearly, whatever value the polygraph had has been compromised, yet these proponents would prefer to do away with the evidence.

Thanks for the perspective.

George,

On Nov 18, 2002 you wrote:

"I suggest that concerned individuals consult the U.S. Department of Justice (which has published a much more extensive translation of an Al-Qaeda Training Manual)."

I am interested in reading their countermeasure advice.  Can you tell me more precisely where I can obtain a copy.  I wasn't able to locate it through Google.

There are many things we disagree on, but I'm with you regarding the value of knowing what Al-Qaeda teaches.

Peace.

Gordon

Gordon,

The post to which you referred includes a hyperlink to the translation of an Al-Qaeda published on-line by the U.S. Department of State.

This document does not, however, address polygraph countermeasures. I mentioned that the State Department had published a translated Al-Qaeda training manual in response to the suggestion by some polygraph supporters that our publication of a translation of an excerpt on lie detection from an Al-Qaeda training manual somehow constituted treason or aiding the enemy.

This is an old topic but I can't resist on a comment.

When one converts to islam it is required that said individual must learn to read, write, and speak arabic. More so for the extremist. To be a true follower of islam one must be fluent in the language of Muhammad and Allah. When one converts they must be schooled to understand the true meanings of the Qur'an.

Same as when one converts to Judaism. Traditionally one must attend hebrew school to learn the language of the Tora, the profits, and of God.

With that being said, posting any translation would not be harmful in any way. These are things that are common knowledge to a jihadist. If anything it has educated the non-arabic speaking american to what these extremist are being taught.

Just my .02 cents
