Fear of the Polygraph Failed to Deter CIA Station Chief in Algiers from Allegedly Drugging and Raping Women

ABC News reports that Andrew Warren, the former CIA station chief in Algiers, Algeria, is being investigated for allegedly drugging and raping women at his official residence. If the allegations are true, it would seem that the mandatory periodic polygraph screening that CIA employees face had no deterrent value:

An affidavit for a warrant to search Warren's computer filed by Diplomatic Security Service special agent Scott Banker is available here:

While certain information in the PDF is blacked out, it can be revealed by copying it and pasting it into a text file. This shows, for example, that the CIA station chief's residence in Algiers was #5 Chemin D’Hydra, Poirsson, El Biar, Algiers, Algeria.

I don't even have to past it into a text file; highlighting it with my mouse makes the text appear.  Wow--way to do you job, guys!!  Great job protecting that sensitive information!  You get a sticker!!

Were the people who attempted to redact that information CIA folks or folks from the court?

Anyway, there's always an excuse for polygraphers.  For instance, they might say: "the examination he underwent didn't involve any questions about raping women, so of course this wasn't revealed."
  

Is former APA President Skip Webb evil or just stupid?

Is former APA President Ed Gelb an idiot or does the polygraph just not work?

Did you know that polygrapher Sackett doesn't care about detecting deception to relevant questions?

Whilst researching for the latest AntiPolygraph.org News article (Apparent CIA Officer Brian Jeffrey Raymond, Charged With Drugging and Sexually Molesting Multiple Women, Evidently Beat the Polygraph), I had occasion to revisit the Andrew Warren case and thought it worthwhile to post an update.

Warren eventually pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 65 months in federal prison. He was released on 14 January 2015 and thereupon began a 120-month period of supervised release. The case was United States v. Warren, Case No. 1:09-cr-00158 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

There is no indication whether Warren was polygraphed in connection with the case, either by the CIA or the FBI.

As noted in the aforesaid article, one of the late investigative reporter Michael Hastings' last articles chronicled the case of Andrew Warren. It's titled, "The Spy Who Cracked Up in the Cold."

After his release from prison, Warren became an ordained minister in New York City, where lewd online conduct reportedly got him into some trouble. See Scott Daugherty's 25 September 2018 Virginian-Pilot article, "How Facebook messages derailed the new life of a disgraced ex-CIA officer from Chesapeake."

Great find, George!  I have updated that page on my blog.  Have you or anyone ever tried to get the news to do a story on U.S. government employees who passed polygraphs while hiding criminal activity?  It seems like it would be a hot story.  I have 10 federal-criminal-polygraph-passing-employees listed from just 2018-2020 alone!  I'm sure there are more out there.

Thank you, Byron! When I speak with reporters about polygraphy, I typically do mention some of these notable failures.
