Actually, the U.S. Constitution does define treason. What it does not define is enemy.

The criteria used by the intelligence community is placing classified information outside U.S. control. Once outside U.S. control, it is effectively compromised. Pollard provided information to Israel, who could have bartered it to China or the Soviet Union.

It was not for some junior analyst to decide our intelligence collaboration with a foreign country. Pollard's attempt to do so was treason.

You can fantasize all you want, but Pollard did not commit Treason- and most important, he was not convicted of any treasonous act against the US.

Conservatives- who venerate the Constitution- or should- should understand that they can not fantasize or pretend to write new criteria into the written word.

Pollard spied. He was not a traitor in any way.
