Regarding abilities to detect countermeasures:   

We are not perfect in this area, however we have been detecting numerous counter measures and the subjects tested have admitted to this.  They, in many cases have recieved information from antipolygraph.org.  This is disturbing to me because most of the subjects are otherwise good candidates.  The use of counter measures does disqualify them from further consideration which is unfortunate.


I'd just like to add that, in my own experience, this sort of thing appears to be raw guesswork on the part of polygraph examiners (unless, of course, someone does something obvious like observably tensing, noisily modifying one's breath, etc.).  My evidence for this was my three polygraph examinations with NSA (which presumably hires competent examiners and has access to any and all research on countermeasure detection).  My use of countermeasures went entirely undetected through all three examinations, even though the first polygrapher noted what nice charts I was producing.  The second said nothing at all about it.

And to answer the inevitable questions: I didn't lie about countermeasure use (or about anything else, for that matter).  I was never accused of using them.  Prior to my third examination, the polygrapher noted that it's common for people, after coming back for multiple polygraph exams, to do some research, and asked me whether I had.  I chose to answer this question truthfully, and told him I was familiar with countermeasures.  He told me that if I used countermeasures, he'd kick me right out the door!   

It's worth noting that he didn't kick me out.

DarkCobra2005,

By my reading of your response you seem like a reasonable type.  Can we agree that it is not unreasonable to look to George's under lying motives in creating this website, while aso looking at Polygraph itself in the abstract ?  A Jury can do so about the motives of a murderer in a murder case, as well as look at the evidence of murder itself.   

Did it strike you as odd that George talked about both the Examiners E. Youngblood and J. Trimarco as having failed him in their respective polygraph tests without any motive on their part.  I wondered why George did not get a re-test using his countermeasures to prove them wrong.   

My assesment of George is that he is a classic over achiever who probably never failed at anything in his life until he tried to outsmart these guys.  I further wondered if his countermeasures simply failed him then !  In reality we have only his half of the respective stories about his tests.  Otherwise, these Examiners seem to have well established careers with numerous awards.  Youngblood = The Examiner who tested and caught the greatest seriel killer of all time- The Angel of Death Case in L.A. .  Trimarco = a classic over achiever in his own right within the FBI, as well as now in the private sector.  Further, each of which are known to me to be good family men and patriots.  You and I seem to have less than this opinion of George, and we have only his words and actions to measure this without having met him. 

In my estimation, and in all that I have read on this site, George's writings and actions are indicative of someone who simply would not have worked out in the FBI and/or greater intelligence community.  Althought he swore an oath to the constitution of the United States as a U.S. Army Intelligence Officer, and further understood that he was tasked with protecting the sources and methods of intelligence gathering, he has attempted to "Compromise" that, a choice he must now live with.  It would not surprise me that when he sets foot on U.S. soil again that he may be facing some investigative efforts and/or prosecution; civil or criminal.   

In closing, can we agree that "Curious George" is a wasted life.  The irony is that his actions have now labled him as unreliable in the minds of any reasonable background investigator who might seek to hire him for intelligence work, regardless of his polygraph test.  The very mission we U.S. Taxpayers invested in for George's training ( Intelligence & Arab Language skills) can no longer be put to use by him as an American for his country.  Not because of the Polygraph he blames, but when looking at the overall picture of him, his methods, and timing !  There will never be another time in George's lifetime wherein his country would have needed him more, and his belief that only the polygraph stood in the way of the needs of the United States is naive, and deceptive to us all !   

I agree with you that George should stay in Holland or some other Socialist nation.  He is apparently more comfortable in a nation like that, or France, which has lost its / their respective identities to massive Arab / Islamic immigration.   

In the end I can only arrive that George I took the same oath as George, but I meant it with my heart, and I write you with the feeling that in doing so I, like you DarkCobra2005, am protecting my country (no substitutes) from all enemies foreign and domestic, for which George qualifies as both !

You were attacked not because you chose to stay in the USA but because you inferred George was a traitor for accpeting work overseas.  Only a paranoid polygrapher would see a remote possibility with this.  When you served your country, were you ever deployed overseas?  Or are you a New Yorker who has never been west of the Hudson, or somebody from Kansas who's never been west of Denver or east of St Louis?

I think he didn't know about countermeasures until being accused of lieing in his first two polygraphs.

Once again, I don't think CM's applied to his own situation.  I'm sure we'd all like to get the polygraphers "side to our own story" but what are the chances of getting a truthful account of their version of "the facts"?

Please.  Perhaps he's trying to help hius country by exposing the corrupt polygraph process and how it can easily be defeated with minimal effort, while at the same time rule honorable and decent people deceptive on no rationale basis.

The country cast him aside and didn't want him.  He decided to use his skills where they were in desire.

Complete ignorance to confuse government economic policy (Socialist) with a governments form of government (democratic/monarchy etc).  So holland provides gov't paid helathcare?  So what.  Ever hear of medicaid?  I'm assuming you work fo rthe government in the US, and with government growth, more and more people are on US government paid helathcare.  Does that make the US socialist?  The Dutch government may own the railroad.  So what.  Ever hear of Amtrak?

Comparing Holland with France is indicitave that you've been to neither.  And even if they were similar -- so what.

George left the service honorably.  And how does his exposure of government waste, fraud and abuse qualify him as a traitor in your eyes (your pathatec job being directly effected by his criticism aside?)

Now to Jeffrey, 

I served in war time with a unit in battle, I do have a number of decorations for my actions in battle situations.  I am also discussed in two books by reliable authors regarding my activities in battle.  Do not attack in that manner, it is unbecoming of you and detracts from the message you are trying to communicate regarding polygraph.  

Please refer to all of my communications above and see what I am asking, why I am asking and make an intelligent decision regarding my motivations.  I have asked questions and I am getting answers, your postings are somewhat uninformative regarding the subject matter, of course that is your right, I simply don't appreciate it.  


Cobra,

Your Service, like George's, is deserving of respect and for that I commend you.  I'm not sure what you intrepreted as an attack; whether it was that I implied you were paranoid or I implied you were a polygrapher (I'm assuming you are).  I simply found the implications that on the basis of a person seeking employment overseas would even raise your eyebrows  a bit amazing, and was trying to see why and thought perhaps it may be because you hadn't been around the block much.  Obviously you have.  There are hundreds of thousands or loyal, patriotic Americans who work overseas, even a few in Holland.  That alone should not be any reason to question their love for the USA, which is one thing I assume we both have in common (yes one can be vehemontly opposed to polygraph and still be a loyal citizen; some think it is our patriotic duty to oppose polygraphics and expose the fraud it is).

Happy Memorial Day (I mean that sincerely).

J.

Unfortunately that was the only intelligent portion of nolieguy's post and the only portion with which I am in agreement.  Without details I can vouch for the cobra's willingness to be reasonable and open.

As to the nolieguy:  I must ask, do you look for a conspiracy in all facets of your life?  Perhaps if you would care to reveal details of your life we all could similarly make assumptions about you.  Your misdirection regarding the topic of this thread is simply childish and moreover, lacking in intelligence.  I suppose in your view the exposure of, for example, the Iran Contra debacle was unpatriotic and against American values.  Now that's quite stupid isn't it?  We as Americans, anywhere, have the right to stand up and give voice when we see or percieve injustice.  Most of us on this board view polygraphy as an injustice and an obstacle to just decision making.  If you would care to add to that discussion by all means please do so.  If you care only to insult those of us in opposition of your views and attempt to spread rumor and misinformation please crawl back under the rock from which you slithered.

Many fascinating posts.

On this Memorial Day, let us remember all who died, all who were willing to die, all who served, and all of the family members and friends who are affected by their decisions to serve.

Let us remember that our Founding Fathers of the Consititution who placed their life on the line for their signatures on a paper.

We all have ideas on how this is best served.   I protected the right to disagree with me my whole life.  I hope to give this right to my children when I leave.

The posters on this site for the most part (and only in very rare cases) are unedited.

How many sites (and countries) can boast of such freedom?  

Such freedom was paid for by so many people.

To all the service men and women and their families:  thankyou for the privilage of posting on an uncensored website my ideas.

Thank you.

It is misleading to state that polygraph examiners are skilled at detecting countermeasures when the only proof is that some of the examinees accused of employing countermeasures later admit to doing so.  The clear problem is a lack of scientific control on the method of verification.  A polygraph examiner faces no negative repercussions should he or she wrongfully accuse someone of using countermeasures.  Therefore, there is no incentive for them to withhold their accusations from anyone who arouses even the faintest suspicions that they may be employing countermeasures.

Ironically, the reasoning behind the countermeasure detection issue is remarkably similar to the reasoning behind the use of the polygraph itself:

Countermeasure Detection – Examiners are free to accuse anyone of countermeasure use.  Anyone who is accused and later admits that they were using countermeasures is held up as living proof that countermeasures can be detected.  The unproven accusations are forgotten.

Polygraph Accuracy – Examiners are free to accuse anyone of deception during the “test.”  Anyone accused of deception who later makes a damaging admission or is convicted in court is then held up as a shining example that polygraphs are accurate.  The unproven accusations are forgotten.

Regardless of the specific issue, the methodology is completely illogical and inaccurate.  If one hundred people are polygraphed, fifty of them are accused of countermeasure use, and five of them admit to it, pointing to those five as proof that countermeasures are detectable is laughable.  Likewise, if one hundred people are polygraphed, fifty of them are accused of deception, and five of them later admit to being deceptive, it is ridiculous to point to those five cases as proof that the polygraph can be used to detect deception.

The unproven accusations are forgotten ????????

George, were the unproven accusations against you FORGOTTEN ?  Certainly the FBI did not Hire YOU, or the LAPD want anything to do with you afterward !  Further, those writing in sit back and wait to see if they further progress in the hiring process, and all indicators seem that most will only get older and not wiser waiting for that call or rejection letter.  We have read of only a few success stories here about countermeasure successes, and mostly from those seeking low level positions, or child molesters on probation / parole.   

How do you measure your own success George when you had to leave your own country to find employment in a time when the USA has never needed more Arab / Iranian, & other regional languages in it's history and while engaged at war.   

When I add it all up it seems you really missed the boat in life and your advice to others is only seeking to serve your own self centered zealot revenge on the computer polygraph community.  You even have gotten into repeating the same old mantras over and over to the point that nobody can find any middle ground here.  You are clearly an obessed expat who has sought out a new socialist reality for your existance, a sad loss of American brain power.  It is not your Phd which opens doors alone, or the talents you possess; but rather the packaging of character you lack.  Want Proof ?  Imagine this website as your advising the enemies of the United States Government.  Not that what you say here all works, as has also been proven by those who have been detected or did not get hired despite your advice.  The TRUTH is Attempts Count in this world, and despite a fine I.Q., a Paper Phd degree, and some other training in the U.S. Army; your real character and obsession is revealed here for all to see.  You are enraged and blind to the point that you would even attempt to advise Child Molesters as allies. 

If I had a child who was ever molested by someone you advised, who in turn somehow got through a PDD exam , there is no place on earth I would not go to extract that foul piece of your brain which allowed that to occur.  As far as I am concerned the program of testing convicted to child molesters should be extended to include drug dealers as well; as the recitivism is so high for them.   

Lastly, Your future as an American is over !  I request that you renouce your citizenship and remain in socialist Holland with some liberal Dutch wife or something.  Better yet, why not convert to Islam and get four Islamic wives over there.  Whatever it takes, as when your country needed you most in time of war, you positioned yourself as "Undesireable" despite your skills, not because of a polygraph test or two, but in showing your obsessive compulsive addictive personality on this website.  You can't hide behind the mere "Wanting to share information" 1st amendment anymore, as when you side with and advise convicted felons you become an accessory to their future acts.   

Live with that George.  "The Unproven Accusations are Forgotten ? " I don't think so, and you won't be forgotten soon by our Government or Intel Aparatus'.  Enjoy each sunrise as the guy who missed his calling for his country when it needed him most, but now just can't use him due to self inflicted (security clearance) wounds !  Word !!!!

TheNoLieGuy4You,

I would suggest to you (and others who may share your point of view) that truth-telling in the public interest is not unpatriotic.

The centerpiece of America's counterintelligence policy -- polygraph "testing"-- is a pseudoscientific fraud. It has no scientific basis and is easily defeated by simple countermeasures that polygraphers cannot reliably detect. Reliance on this bogus technology has caused considerable harm to both national security and individuals, examples of which are cited in Chapter 2 of The Lie Behind the Lie Detector.

If anyone's patriotism is to be questioned--perhaps it is that of those who, in the face of overwhelming evidence of the polygraph's unreliability--(ab)use their positions of power to promote continued reliance on it.

Of course, by writing “the unproven accusations are forgotten” I was indicating the lack of scientific control and the overall inadequacy of the “evidence” that either countermeasure detection or the polygraph itself is accurate.  I was certainly not implying that those people falsely accused of deception on a polygraph “test” quickly forget about the incident.

The apparent hostility many in the polygraph community have for George seems to weigh against them, in my opinion.  George is questioning the accuracy of a “test” which they claim is firmly grounded in science, and they often respond by launching a personal attack on him.  If their profession is based on solid science why would they be so reluctant to discuss its accuracy?

If someone at the scene of a motor vehicle accident questions how I determined they were at fault, I can and often do spend as much time as required explaining the science behind my conclusions.  If they doubt the scientific validity of my methods, I can easily explain to them the derivation of the mathematical equations I use and how they originated with basic Newtonian physics.  I can show them the measurements I took at the scene and they can feel free to go back to the scene and measure it all themselves to make sure I didn’t make a mistake.

What I can’t imagine is attacking them personally for daring to question me.  I can’t see myself accusing them of “being against law and order” or “not being patriotic” for questioning how I do my job.  However, if I was just making everything up as I went along, and I hadn’t done any real measurements or used any real equations, then I might get upset if someone starting questioning my methods.

That’s what I see when certain members of the polygraph community are so openly hostile.  They are reacting to the shouts that the Emperor has no clothes by going into the crowd and attacking the shouters.

If cops are letting people go simply because they "passed" a polygraph, then the problem lies with the police for their overreliance on the polygraph.

It's not a matter of the machine being broken. It's about an unreliable, faulty, good for nothing so-called testing procedure that lacks scientific validity.  The only thing weak around here is your arguement.
