I think the other spies got off way too easy, too. Johnny Walker Lindh should be hanging from the gallows. But I wasn't the prosecutor.
Tell you what, if I take that long walk, and it turns into a long swim, and if I wind up in Israel spying for the US, then you'll put in a good word for me, OK? After all, I'm just spying on a friend, right?
Don't bother, the Israelis would secretly execute me, as they bloody well should. They need to take whatever measures they deem necessary for their security, they're on the front lines of this war. Like we were on the front lines of the Cold War at the time of Pollard's offenses.
At least I don't believe Pollard should be executed. He's far too valuable as a bargaining chip if we ever need him for that.
