George,

Can you verify if the security clearance level of the recently arrested and accused Chinese-American Navy spies Wenheng Zhao and Jinchao Wei? 

Did they have TS/SCI clearance and if so did they pass polygraphs?

According to their indictments, both Wenheng Zhao and Jinchao Wei held only secret level security clearances. Thus, it seems unlikely that either of them would have been subject to polygraph screening.

I appreciate this.  By the way, I do not work for USA Today.  I am a writer (maybe a famous news journalist, or maybe just a random blogger) on another platform, however. 

I oppose the polygraph because I know it is just an interrogation tool to extract confessions from people.  Unfortunately, in my circle, everyone has been brainwashed by the media to believing that the polygraph works and when I share my opinion about it I get backlash.  I have been lurking on Antipolygraph.org and other internet sites about the polygraph for a while.  To no surprise, I have been banned from Reddit, the late Federalsoup forum (now defunct), and others for speaking about about the polygraph.

Whenever someone has a job that required them to pass a thorough background check or a polygraph as terms of their employment, which is usually someone with a security clearance or in law enforcement, I dig into the story a bit.

Since this story has nothing to do with someone beating the polygraph while concealing criminal activity, I guess I will move on.  LOL.

I also look into espionage cases as they arise to see whether there might be a polygraph connection. One that I'm keeping an eye on is that of Alexander Yuk Ching Ma, a former CIA officer and FBI translator who is awaiting trial on espionage charges. That trial is presently scheduled to begin on 10 June 2024.

By the way, you're welcome to post in Reddit's r/AntiPolygraph subreddit.
