Maybe not, but I like plain-speaking folks myself. I hate diplomatic mumbo-jumbo myself.

I hate diplomatic mumbo-jumbo myself.

I'm fairly fluent in diplo-speak. The ambassador could have said something like - "Israel is a great friend and ally with the United States - but that was not the issue in the Pollard case. The laws of the United States have severe penalties for espionage on behalf of a foreign nation - even if that nation is a close ally. The Pollard case was handled according to our laws, and should not be construed as a threat to our close relationship, blah blah blah blah, etc."
