No, that is patently inaccurate. Pollard has acknowleged and apologized for copying the documents; but it is an entirely different thing to claim that he sold out his country; only someone who considers Israel an enemy of the U.S. would say Pollard sold our his country; would that be you, Santini? Pollard, as events of the past decades have dramatically shown, harmed only the growing nuclear build-up of Saddam Hussein. Was that selling out the U.S.? Pollard's acts, which resulted in the destruction of the nuclear reactor of Saddam, have, in fact, been praised by U.S. military and security experts in the years following Pollard's lifesentence. They say that the U.S. itself had no reason not to share with Israel the key information about Iraqi plans to harm her. They say that Pollard achieved a very good thing for the U.S. when the Iraqi nuclear plant was destroyed. Pollard can not be put the the same category as those who did sell out their country and endanger agents by sharing classified info to enemies who wanted to and did use the info to harm the U.S.

I've heard that Reagan's CIA director said that info filched by Pollard ended up with the Soviets. True? If so, shouldn't he be shot?
