The Polygraph vs. National Security

Alan Zelicoff, a distinguished physician and expert on biological weapons arms control, was driven to resign his position as Senior Scientist at Sandia National Laboratories last year as a consequence of his outspoken criticism of polygraph testing. In a March 11 paper, “The Polygraph vs. National Security,” Zelicoff describes its failure as a technology for counterintelligence security screening.
