What is it saying? That Pollard was not given the measly 2-4 years (LOL) because Aldrich Ames revealed the identities of American Agents in the Soviet Union? Is that to be read Pollard was accused of revealing the American agents through the Israelis, and thereby got the long sentence, but he and the Israelis were framed because the accuser was none other than Ames himself covering his own tracks?
Eh, interesting storyline for a novel. Anyway, he sold satellite photos no? How would he know anything about agents in the Soviet Union?
Fishy story, and vague.
I found it to be confusing too.
I remember a previous thread on Pollard, where some posters, at least one of whom claimed to have been involved in intelligence work, raised this allegation against Pollard.
I was surprised too, since the little I knew about the case had led me to believe that Pollard had been involved in sigint, and that was the type of info he had revealed.
I read some more about the case, and it appears that the story about the US agents/sources in the Soviet Union had been quite widely spread.
It seems quite clear that the real culprit in those cases were Aldrich Ames.
