Jonathan Pollard is serving a life sentence for giving secrets to an American ally. The secrets were used by Israel to bomb Iraq's nuclear power plant. Imagine if Saddam Hussein would have nuclear warheads -- the Gulf War would certainly have a different outcome.

I don't get it - what did he do wrong?

As others write, Pollard is a traitor and deserves far worse than he got. From my perspective as an American, he should have been hung or shot for his treason. Rotting in jail for the rest of his pathetic life is second best.

If believe that if Pollard had been a Muslim terrorist, he would have been released already.

A sane country would’ve hanged this pucker.

As it is, we’re spending too much money keeping him alive.

While his case is certainly not a shining example of American justice, the fact is he did the deed as evidenced by his guilty plea, and got the maximum sentence. Not what he expected, but that's life, which he gets to spend in prison.

Israel is not an "ally" of the U.S. at all. The U.S. and Israel have no obligation under a mutual defense treaty to provide military support to each other in the event of an attack by a third nation (except under a very specific, limited, circumstance . . . any Freeper who knows this gets an A+ for Modern History class).

Anyone who has worked in U.S. counter-espionage over the last 50 years will tell you that they've had as much trouble dealing with Israeli spies as they did with Soviet spies during the height of the Cold War.

If Bush was willing to let him stay in jail what in the world makes her think that Barack Obama, with his animosity towards Israel, would pardon him?

He will no doubt remain in jail. Where he belongs.

Pollard (among others) should have hanged, and I’d be happy to urinate on his grave.

Which then fell into the hands of the ChiComs. He should have been executed.

“The wife of Jonathan Pollard read a letter to American President Barack Obama appealing for her husband’s release”

I would prefer to fry him.
