In 1993 Secretary of Defense Les Aspin reported that Pollard had tried 14 times to disclose classified information in letters written to various recipients from his prison cell.

Also....

then Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger said, “It is difficult for me...to conceive of greater harm done to national security.”

By his own estimates Pollard passed to his Israeli handlers more than 800 classified publications and more than 1,000 cables, probably the largest cache of materials ever passed through espionage. At one point, when Pollard's new wife was hoping to clinch a job interview at an international public relations firm with branches in China, he brought home five secret studies on China. Her presentation was assessed as brilliant.

Me again....

Pollard also tried to sell/trade secrets with investors, revealing classified information that he thought could aid them in their investments, and for which he hoped to be rewarded later.

In short it seems that there wasn't much that Pollard wouldn't steal, and nobody he wouldn't sell it to.

I also remember allegations that the little weasel had a cocaine habit he needed to support. Pollard was/is nothing more than an unprincipled, selfish piece of sh!+. He's probably what psychiatrists would call a sociopath. In any event, there is absolutely nothing noble about him.
