Another poly folly, (or so it appears).
Nov 14th, 2007 at 4:03am
It appears some spychick who went to work for the FBI 8 years ago, (had to take a polyto get hired) and then the CIA 4  years ago (assuming another poly) has now been discovered to be a spy.  Isn't the poly supposed to weed out these types?

"Although the degree of reliability of polygraph evidence may depend upon a variety of identifiable factors, there is simply no way to know in a particular case whether a polygraph examiner's Conclusion is accurate, because certain doubts and uncertainties plague even the best polygraph exams."  (Justice Clarence Thomas writing in United States v. Scheffer, 523 U.S. 303, 118 S.Ct. 1261, 140 L.Ed.2d 413, 1998.)

The employee involved, Nada Nadim Prouty, has not been accused of espionage against the United States. However the Prouty case does seem to be yet another failure of polygraph screening. See:

Comments on the Prouty case should be directed to the above thread. This one has been closed.
