Response to Letter Regarding McClatchy Series on Polygraphs

American Polygraph Association vice-president for government affairs Robert Peters argues that McClatchy Newspapers’ recent reporting on federal polygraph screening “presented a misleading depiction of how the federal government uses polygraph for personnel security.” (“Letter regarding McClatchy series on polygraphs,” Dec. 13, 2012.) But Peters fails to make a convincing case for that viewpoint. Indeed, he fails to document any factual inaccuracy and resorts instead to straw man argumentation and nitpicking.
