    Amazing what science can do. I just hope it is not another brick in the wall of the Orwellian nightmare:

  2. ...if such a technology really worked, it would no doubt completely undermine the US political system...

    I can almost hear the lie detector going off...

    "...The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.."

  3. Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.
    Dick Cheney August 26, 2002

    We know for a fact that there are weapons there.
    Ari Fleischer January 9, 2003

    Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons.
    George W. Bush September 12, 2002

    We know where they are. They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad.
    Donald Rumsfeld March 30, 2003

  4. Voice stress analyzers have been around for years. They work, but aren't flawless - and more importantly, don't work on pathelogical liars.

    So obviously they're useless on all politicians.

    That is the best quote I have read all day.
  6. LOL ! truth phones have been around for a long time. nothing new.

    How about we make all pols talk into the truth phone whenever they are giving a speech. Then we can see if they really work.
  8. From Clinton's Dec 1998 Speech (you can see the whole thing with a google search):

    Clinton also called Hussein a threat to his people and to the security of the world.

    "The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a new Iraqi government -- a government ready to live in peace with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of its people," Clinton said.

    Such a change in Baghdad would take time and effort, Clinton said, adding that his administration would work with Iraqi opposition forces.

    Clinton also addressed the ongoing impeachment crisis in the White House.

    "Saddam Hussein and the other enemies of peace may have thought that the serious debate currently before the House of Representatives would distract Americans or weaken our resolve to face him down," he said.

    "But once more, the United States has proven that although we are never eager to use force, when we must act in America's vital interests, we will do so."
  9. there was this MIAMI VICE episode in which a drug dealer tested his girlfriend's fidelity with a Voice Stress Analyser didnt like the results and promptly shot her dead. goes to show you just how ancient is this tech :)


  10. [Above statements passed through Dungrider's TruthPhone]:

    "...yeah we know Dumya sucks, and his advisor's policies have been wrong all too often, but by golly, BILL CLINTON wanted Saddam to go away, and that makes it all OK...because even though we say that Bill Clinton SUCKED, we are going to use him to justify whatever we want to pull because unlike Dumya, who cannot even ad-lib complete sentences, Clinton actually did do a pretty good job of running the country even though we'll never admit it and instead make everyone else listen to our retarded lewinsky jokes..."

    And (pull your head out of your ass to hear this one) I think the obvious point here is that Clinton DID NOT INVADE IRAQ! (Nor did he want to).

    Invading Iraq has NOT WORKED WELL. Clinton's cabinet was bright/sane enough to see that. Clinton did not MAKE UP LIES to justify an illegal war. Clinton's policies kept Saddam from doing much of anything at all, as shown CLEARLY by the LACK of WMDs.

    The US is NOT at war with anybody. Bullying a country controlled by a tyrant apparently only serves to alienate the US, make big deficits and little more.

    If one removes their head from their ass, they are more likely to see REALITY in front of them.
