...taking revenge on Israeli intelligence...?? The guy was spying. He was caught, given a fair trial and imprisoned. Were we supposed to give him a medal and a free, one-way ticket to Tel Aviv? Or what?

Rafi Eitan may have his opinions about the U.S. taking it out on Pollard to “get even” with Israel, but Eitan (the guy who recruited Pollard to spy on the U.S. - that’s also called being a traitor) is living good as a govt official and allowed a fellow Jew to suffer. Eitan should have devised an escape plan for Pollard to leave the U.S. and, to placate any hurt American feelings, Pollard could serve time in one of those weekend off jails in Israel.
As for me, I’ve got no sympathy for Pollard.

They should have traded Pollard for some Eastern bloc spy, like MI5 routinely used to do.

What do the Israelis do when they find Americans spying on them in ways they don't like. Well, looking back at the USS Liberty it seems that Israel shoots Americans conducting intelligence missions against them.

In an interview to Maariv in 2008, Eitan said that the US intelligence services made a joint decision not to permit Pollard ever to be released until the end of his life. "The reason isn't Pollard. It's Israel... It's connected to the relationship system between the American intelligence services and the state of Israel." Eitan went on to confirm that the US intelligence services were "taking revenge" on Israeli intelligence through Pollard.
