Leaked to let Israel know that we ain’t gonna pardon the traitorous scumbag named Pollard...
Timing is everything.
Notice what details that are provided vs. what Iran should be scared about.
Israeli F-15s took out the Iraqi and Syrian nuke facilities with conventional weapons while effectively slipping through Russian-provided air defenses. Iran should be rightly concerned that Israel would not hesitate to arm the F-15s with tactical nukes, in order to take out Iran’s nuke facilities. An 84 yr old Jew just enabled the U.S. and Israel to send Iran a potent message - don’t even think about it.
Samething happened with China with those “miss-shipped” nuke fuses sent to Tiawan.
The timing of this is very strange. Prosecuting an 84 year old man 23 years after the crime was committed? They had no idea of this for the last 23 years?
No kidding. I never believed those triggers were "miss-shipped".
I also believe that both Taiwan and Saudia Arabia have nukes.
and I’m not really sure about those unaccounted-for nukes that took a ride or two across country recently.
I didn’t know anything about that.
But I would be very pleased if Taiwan had nukes; of all countries (besides Israel), it needs them (and about 20 different delivery systems).
Taiwan at least gets to deal with rational enemies.
20+ years ago? What’s the statute of limitations on espionage? It isn’t “treason” because it wasn’t aid to a foreign government “we were at war with”.
I am against espionage and know that our allies are not always our friends. Just curious why this prosecution can continue but Jane Fonda is still walking freely.
I felt the same way about the “joyride” Too many people involved, and too many security checks involved to screw up as badly as claimed. I think it was an intentional message.
Long time, wonder where this information has been buried, and why it came up now.
It the 84 year old traitor dies in prison, don't whine to me, he's had many years of undeserved freedom, a betrayal of those with whom he served.
Presuming he's guilty, of course, I suspect he is.
The Israelis took US nuclear secrets and gave them to the Soviets in exchange for Russians jews.
I am a big friend of Israel, but this unacceptable behavior from a friend.
He’s got 7 1/2 years to go.

As for the Israelis who call for Pollard's release, they are either trying to sabotage US-Israeli relations, or they are proof taht not all Jews are intelligent.
Let’s see. The policy of our leaders is against Israel having nukes but has long been actively involved in making sure that China, North Korea, Iran, Sudan and nations like that have nukes through student exchange, employment and trade policies.
Gotcha. No vote, and no respect for you all. [Spit]
I heard this from the G Gordon Liddy.
Only when the espionage is on behalf of an enemy of the United States. Israel does not fit that category.
Please read the definition of "treason" - which for good reason is the only crime defined in the Constitution.
Though espionage on behalf of an ally is a crime, it should not be punished anywhere near as harshly as espionage on behalf of an an enemy.
How severely would you punish espionage, stealing our national secrets, and giving them to a country we’re not at war with?
A stern letter? Something in your permanent record?
