2016 Elections - Bernie Sanders on Polygraphs?

Has Bernie Sanders taken any type of definitive stand on polygraph use in the federal government, or on the issue of the  intelligence community in general? Undecided
  

What do we call it when every employee of the Agency's Office of Security
and Office of Personnel drowns in the Potomac?   A great beginning!

The best intelligence community employee is a compromised IC employee!

To the best of my knowledge, Bernie Sanders has not taken any public position on polygraph policy.

It'd be interesting if you were to contact his campaign and ask for comment, but then again, it's a touchy subject. Of all the candidates, I think he would be the least inclined to rubber stamp something like this. But, as history has shown us, once elected, presidents are faced with the same in-basket as their predecessors and their exuberant idealism displayed during the campaign becomes tempered by reality.

No, any public discussion of intelligence issues still appears to remain almost taboo.  (even among "progressives") Roll Eyes

I'm afraid that you're entirely correct.  Once they start to receive the "Presidential Daily Briefing" materials, the PDB can become quite addictive. Shocked
