Hmmm. Did you know that the UK and the USA have a spying agreement? The UK spys on domestic Americans - the CIA spys on Brits. Seems both organizations are forbidden to spy on their own citizens and get around it in that way.
Likewise the US and the Israel. My understanding is that we get a lot of information out of Israeli Intelligence. It would shock my friends to hear me say it, but in espionage, it is awfully hard to find "black and white."
That said, I'd shoot traitors like Pollard, too. Makes a good example.
If what you say is true, and I have my doubts, I'm sure that agreement would not include the type of military secrets Pollard handed over to Isreal and who knows who else.
Apples and oranges. The huge---and I do mean huge----difference in what Pollard did, and what the latest Pentagon spy, Larry Franklin did, is in violating the SOP for country-to-country spying.
The SOP is that countries who have spying agreements with the US are required to advise the CIA about their activities.
This means that Pollard---and the AIPAC-Pentagon treachery---were very, very serious threats to US national security, since these operatives deliberately chose to keep their spying activities secret from US intel. Obviously, the operation was over and above the usual country-to-country spying.
Oops. I guess they'll have to kill me, now that I've outed the scheme. (Yawn) gosh, I'm so scared (snore).
Not to worry. I've already notified Scotland Yard, Interpol, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the DOJ, CIA, FBI, state, local and county law enforcement----and I named names.........just in case lurkers are taking notes (smirk).
