Shin Bet's stated intention to subject Uri Blau to lie-detector or polygraph "testing" is a sure sign of bad faith. Polygraphy is a pseudoscientific fraud that involves the polygraph operator lying to and otherwise deceiving the person being "tested" and depends on the naivete and gullibility of the latter. In short, the lie detector is little more than an interrogator's ruse. In Uri Blau's case, the unstandardized, unscientific procedure will give Shin Bet the flexibility of branding him a liar if, for any reason, they are not pleased with his answers. I'm a co-founder of AntiPolygraph.org, a non-profit, public interest website dedicated to exposing and ending waste, fraud, and abuse associated with the use of polygraphs and other purported "lie detectors." See our site for a thorough debunking of polygraphy.
