From the Paper:

"The use of polygraph testing is widespread in the United States. Elements of the criminal justice system at all levels, private sector employers, and various governmental agencies conduct polygraph testing in a broad spectrum of situations. The objective of polygraph testing in all of these situations, however, is the determination of the truthfulness of statements made by individuals concerning their own actions or their knowledge of events (Ghannam, 2000). If this narrative were the end of the story, the polygraph problem would not exist. Unfortunately, however, polygraph testing is the subject of long-standing and acrimonious disputes concerning its validity (Chapman & Lopresti, 2000)."
