In today's Daily Telegraph there's a short article saying that Clinton
passed a lie detector test when asked if he had sex with Lewinsky.  The
article went on to say how the device used was not a polygraph but a device
called a truster that measures stress in the human voice often associated
with lying.

What the article didn't mention was that any type of lie detector that
detects changes having anything to do with a fear of getting caught can be
fooled.  If the person being questioned is good at lying or has practised
the lie then he or she won't be under any stress when telling a lie.  We
all know that Clinton is an accomplished liar, and we know that lie
detectors are unreliable enough that evidence from them isn't allowed in
