Pollard got US spies killed

All for a few bucks

He is lucky he is still breathing

This is a game too folks, you HAVE TO show that if you are caught spying it will not be good. You also have to do everything possible (on the other side) to retrieve your caught spies- otherwise no one will be willing to do that kind of work.

Real spies KNOW this and have to be willig to sacrifice their lives for their country. This is why countries willingly ‘trade’ captured spies. they are both anctious to find out what was given over to the other side. Very complex game.

Slimy weasels selling out their countryman for a few buck don’t know this and suffer- and the more the better, I say.

Did you enjoy those fancy vacations and nice home Pollard? Were you happy living there knowing some one may have been tortured to death thanks to you? I hope you rot.

“Pollard got US spies killed”

That’s actually not true. That was Ames.

Pollard gave US intel on Israeli enemie that the US had not shared with Israel, which Israel used to kill terrorists that our State Department was coddling.

Which is pretty cool, but still illegal.

Pollard needs to rot in jail for the rest of his life, but he also needs a medal.

I don’t think there’s any proof for this and, in fact, some good reasons to think that it’s not true and that it was Aldrich Ames who got our guys killed.

Do you have a source for the allegation?

BTW, there is a huge qualitative difference between espionage that costs lives and espionage that doesn’t, IMHO, which goes to the reasonableness of the sentence.

By comparison to any espionage case, Pollard has received much harsher treatment, starting with the government breaking its plea agreement with him through the conditions and length of his confinement.

No. I’m not saying he’s a hero, a patriot or whatever. I’m not saying what he did was right. On the contrary, what he did was very wrong. But his punishment has been way out of proportion to the crime.

Pollard was a Naval analyst. He didn't have access for who were US spies in the Soviet Union.

Pollard was blamed for the betrayal of Aldrich Ames and others.

Are you so wedded to your prejudices that truth would not modify your opinion?
