Mark Mazzetti of the New York Times reports that the Department of Defense's Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA), of which the Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment (DACA, the polygraph school formerly known as the Department of Defense Polygraph Institute that trains all federal polygraph operators) is a component, is expected to be disbanded.

The intelligence unit, called the Counterintelligence Field Activity office, was created by Mr. Rumsfeld after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as part of an effort to counter the operations of foreign intelligence services and terror groups inside the United States and abroad.
