NPR This American Life - Mr. Lie Detector

One week after being released from prison, Doug was interviewed by Gavin McInnes.  This video is an excerpt of this interview.

After Doug returned home from prison, he got a nice email from a young lady by the name of Angela Scott.  She welcomed Doug home and sent him a link to a video of her speech to TOASTMASTERS.  This speech was his testimony in the US Congress in support of the EMPLOYEE POLYGRAPH PROTECTION ACT.  Click here to watch it:    Angela Scott's dramatic reading of Doug's testimony in the U.S. Congress

This article and the video above were written and produced prior to Doug being incarcerated in Federal prison for 2 years for "protesting the loudest and the longest against the polygraph".

MAN vs MACHINE - Doug Williams' war on the so-called "lie detector".

This CBS 60 MINUTES program was first aired in May 1986. It was rebroadcast numerous times during the next two years and was very instrumental in encouraging the Congress to pass the EMPLOYEE POLYGRAPH PROTECTION ACT into law. This law prohibited the use of the polygraph as a condition of employment in the private sector. Unfortunately for literally millions of people, the government was given an exemption from this law and in spite of all the evidence showing the  waste, fraud and abuse by the government polygraph thugs, the government has actually expanded the use the polygraph dramatically.  Shame on all the government officials who use the polygraph!  You have much to answer for.

When Doug testified in Congress, in addition to his testimony, he submitted a copy of his manual HOW TO STING THE POLYGRAPH into what's known as the "packet" which is a place to put evidence and supporting documents to amplify the verbal testimony.  Doug's  manual then became part of the public domain.  It is still available in many places on web.  Here is one of the websites where  HOW TO STING THE POLYGRAPH is available.
