Did Thane Eugene Cesar pass the polygraph test organized by Dan Moldea in 1994, and why is this important?

In a nutshell:|
Moldea, Dan E. The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity.
...his extensive interviews with Thane Eugene Cesar climax in a lie-detector test which Cesar passes -- but the case for a second gun has never rested solely on Cesar, and certainly not on Cesar's own words, lie-detected or not.
yes he did....He successfully passed a polygraph test organized by Dan Moldea in 1994. An LAPD polygraph was set up for him in 1968 but was cancelled for unknown reasons by authorities the day before it was to take place.|
This is important because he was implicated in the killing of Robert Kennedy but Moldea believed in his innocence...
Early in 1968, Thane Eugene Cesar, 26, had applied for the position of security guard at Ace Guard Service because he was desperate to earn extra money and the $3.00 an hour was enticing. In recent months he had worked part time on occasion. But it was not until late in the afternoon of June 4th that Gene received a call from Ace Guard to report to the Ambassador Hotel for duty. He says that he was called late because another guard was not able to show up at the last minute, and that he was not there as a Kennedy bodyguard but for "crowd control." At 11:15 p.m. he was assigned to check credentials at the doorway of Colonial Room (where the press conference was to be held) and was to clear the way for the Kennedy entourage en route. As the crowd entered through the kitchen pantry swinging doors, he took up his duty and followed closely behind and to the right of Senator Kennedy.
Seconds later when the shooting broke out, Cesar hit the floor and admitted drawing his weapon. Although two witnesses, one a newsman, said they saw the security guard fire, Gene says that he did not do so. He successfully passed a polygraph test organized by Dan Moldea in 1994. An LAPD polygraph was set up for him in 1968 but was cancelled for unknown reasons by authorities the day before it was to take place.
However, as Moldea also points out, Cesar was standing directly behind Kennedy when Sirhan began firing and, according to his own statements, was in a position to shoot Kennedy at a point blank range.
A total of five witnesses saw him draw the gun, and Cesar gave contradictory statements to police about exactly when he drew the weapon. (He also had been on guard duty in the pantry an hour earlier when Sirhan reportedly slipped into the area.)
The trajectory of the shots from the back, which went through Kennedy's coat as well as into his head, were perfectly aligned with where Cesar said he was on the floor. If he did not fire, then he should have been right next to whoever did shoot and witnessed the activity. He was never asked and never volunteered that information during the polygraph.
