The CIA's latest "Molly Hale" story is about the topic of lie detectors. It makes false and misleading claims about polygraph testing in response to a public inquiry:

I've written a commentary in response titled "CIA's 'Molly Hale' Lies About Lie Detectors" that will be of interest to prospective CIA applicants:

I'm glad to see Molly is wearing a mask :) But it looks like she is only wearing one!!! And where is the face shield????

Not sure if that counts as "false and misleading" but certainly it is a very rosy picture. I remember one job posting I saw for a polygraph examiner where the "desired qualifications" included stuff like "experience in eliciting confessions" and stuff like that. And when "Molly" says that the polygraph isn't a tool to "psych out" potential 'officers' well I guess that depends on what your definition of 'is' is.
DISCLAIMER: You read it on an open internet forum :)

"I’m here to tell you that the actual polygraph is far less intimidating than your mind might make it out to be."

Ha. I know everyone's experience is going to be unique, but mine somehow managed to be *more* intimidating than I made it out to be.
