Olmert is going to give up most of Judea and Samaria and hopes to appease Zionists

Ah. I was trying to figure out why this story was coming out now and you gave me the reason. Of course it is VoldOlmert and the destruction of 25,000 Jews' lives in Judea and Samaria. VoldOlmert needs a carrot to sell to the Israeli electorate so he can kick the crap out of 25,000 Jewish settlers.

I agree....poor Bush...I just wonder if all these folks would have preferred kerry? I only posted this to see if anyone had heard any such thing. My intent was not to have folks to start screaming and cussing at our president.

Well maybe some of the information came to the USSR via Pollard. But some of the Hersh article's insinuations seemed a stretch to me. That Afghan arms dealing allegation seems quite a stretch NOT to make up.

He let Sandy Berger get off lightly. Might as well let this guy go too.

Just when you think Bush's poll numbers could not get any lower, then comes this. Rove must have lost his senses.

Much like the Duke lacrosse team, President Bush is, to some here, guilty until proven innocent.

No need to wait and see if the facts are accurate.

Isn't that the truth. Holding an opinion until we get the real facts appears to have flown out the window. I mean Wednesday is tomorrow and even Monday is just a few days away. Geezzz...LOL

Just to clarify:

I do not believe that Pollard's treason revealed agents in the Soviet Union. Simply beause he was not involved in that kind of work. That is a canard - possibly started by Ames.

I do not know if any of his information enventually reached USSR. However, that's the problem spying for a friendly nation - once the person let go of the information it is no longer his to control - and it could end up in worse places than intended. That if nothing else is Pollard's guilt.

I agree that many things in Hersh's article seemed quite hard to believe - but then a lot of what he writes seems to be a mixture of fiction and self evident truths, made up into great revelations.

Finally, as you wrote in an earlier post, it seemed like Pollard had mental problems. The same with Ames, and Burgess and many other spies. Strange that so many manage to get away with their strange behaviour for so long.

The Pollard camp has announced his impending release on several occasions in the past.

Jonathan Pollard was a U.S. Navy intelligence analyst in the 1980's when he came across information vital to Israel's security that was not being transferred to the Jewish state - contrary to an intelligence-sharing agreement between the U.S. and Israel. He then passed along the information to Israel, ultimately helping Israel to protect itself from Iraqi missiles. He was later caught while trying to find asylum in the Israeli Embassy in Washington. Despite a plea bargain agreement, he received a life sentence with no parole for an offense that usually nets 2-4 years.

This is just a bit of the B.S. in that essay. It's merely a lobbying piece.

Understood. These days, however, every thread on FreeRepublic eventually gets hijacked by the anti-immgration folks, and is turned into another opportunity to bash Bush.

"Is there really people here who believe this story?"

Mrs. Pollard's story about being visited? Nope.

But I'm intrigued with the Aldrich Ames angle. Rich spy story of the Cold War era type.

Plus Hersh is involved so red flags wave high.
