When asked if detainee knew what a polygraph was, detainee related that other detainees had told him the Americans had amachine that he could be hooked to that would determine if he were lying or telling the truth. After confirming that the device he'd heard of was indeed a polygraph, he was offered an opportunity to be examined. Detainee then related that he would take the polygraph exam, but that we should expect some inconsistencies in the results, because some days he was not in a good mood, and that he would sometimes lie on those days. Detainee also stated that the translations were probably sometimes wrong as well, which would cause us to think he was lying about things but he felt sure he could explain them.

uneducated person he claimed to be.
