    Attorney: FBI singling out Chinese-Americans with insider-threat program

    The FBI has singled out Chinese-Americans as part of a controversial insider-threat reduction program that has sought to flag alleged efforts to manipulate polygraph tests, according to a leading national security defense attorney.

    “The government reacts with this sledgehammer instead of laser precision to determine who would be an insider threat which is very difficult to predict,” said Mark Zaid, who has several clients with ongoing disputes involving intelligence agencies including the FBI. “They’re sacrificing tons, dozens and dozens of Americans who’re doing nothing but their jobs, and the FBI is one of the worst to do this.”

    Zaid argues the program is flagging potentially innocent people based on a questionable standard.

    One of Zaid’s clients – who asked not to be identified for fear of further retaliation – explained how it works. The client said, in their case, an evaluator alleged during a routine polygraph that the FBI employee had used “counter measures” to affect the accuracy of the test.
