Do any of you gus know if hypnosis can be used to pass a polygraph, i.e using short term amnesia? 
Does any one know of any one blatantly lying and passing a polygraph using counter measures?  Many thanks...

I'm not aware of any evidence that hypnosis is of any help for passing polygraph examinations. As for a person who blatantly lied but passed using countermeasures, the most infamous example is Aldrich Ames.

Or, Gary Ridgway, our nations most notorious serial killer, who killed after passing a police polygraph.
  

"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.)
