WASHINGTON - The top US intelligence official on Monday ordered that a new question be added to federal employee lie-detector tests to help uncover any leaks of secret information to the media. In true spy-agency form, the wording of the question was not made public.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper announced he was mandating a question related to "unauthorized disclosure of classified information" be added to the counterintelligence polygraph given to employees at agencies including the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Department of Energy, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Security Agency and others.

"It is my sincere hope that others across the government will follow our lead," Clapper said in a statement.
