      What does this have to do with policy analysis?

      Body language shows a lot about a person. It has to do with the man he is. The truthful stood confident and respectful. The questionable was edgy and unable to stand straight on his two feet. The questionable had the widest eyes I'd ever seen him have. He also seemed at times to be oblivious to what the truthful was saying as if the questionable had a plug in his ear keeping the questionable from hearing… He kept lying about the truthful saying this is what the truthful is doing. That's what brain washers do just like the truthful told. Keep lying which is STUPID because once you lie to the truthful, the truthful isn't fooled by repeats. Body language has a lot to do with a person AND A LIARS TRUTH!
