as a matter of fact, I overheard one of the OARDEC members talking about CVSA yesterday. I explained there were may reliability issues surrounding this, but I didn't know if they were going to move forward with their request. Nevertheless, I will ensure this gets pushed through to Col Taylor and subsequently passed along to the rest of the OARDEC crew.

Information has filtered down to   (CITF Polygraph coordinator) that OARDEC is requesting the CVSA (Computer Voice Stress Analyzer) results used by JTFGTMO in their interrogations. The this with this is that OSD (specifically the Under Secretary of Defense Stephen Cambone) has severely limited the "official" utilization of the precedure to only as a "prop" to elicit information. Utilization of the CSVA as "Truth" credibility assessment has been denied by OSD and no official reports indicating the veracity of the subject are to be released. This could pose problems for OARDEC if those unofficial reports by JTF-GTMO are entered into the tribunal process (or used in any matter actually), as tainting the process. If this is true, highly recommed OARDED not pursue this angle, as OSD policy has specifically indicated the technology is not authorized. The only authorized instrument/technology for CI&S)   or e-mail   Also   CIFA   or e-mail   can you verify that OARDEC is in fact requesting these CSVA reports from JTF-GTMO?
