In general I’d a agree with you, but Ted Olson is a political animal, and it’s odd to go from representing Ronald Reagan in Iran-Contra. But he represented Wen Ho Lee too, so maybe spies interest him. I wouldn’t base a decision either way on Olson’s presence, his interest could be primarily a function of the unusual legal issues.

Well right now Olson’s involved in litigation to overturn the voter ban on homosexual marriage in California.

Anyway, don’t think the Pollard issue works to the benefit of Israel or the American Jewish community.

Let bygones be bygones, let sleeping dogs lie.

Easy for me to say, eh.

But part of the reason for the book being thrown at him was specifically that a friend, Israel, had been running such an OP against its best friend and benefactor.

I think there was tremendous anger in the Defense and Intelligence state organs of America against both Pollard and Eitan.
