My company is submitting me for a TS-SCI with Full Polygraph security clearance, and today I attended a meeting where they described how the process works. They stressed that the questioning and the polygraph would be very invasive and would include my lifestyle, past egregious acts (I suppose we all have at least one), and anything else they find worthy of attention. My question for Slashdot readers is this — should I go forward with the application process? If I go through all of this scrutiny and don't get the clearance, will the government keep those records on me? What are the ramifications of being documented this way?"
