I’m trying to figure out why you (and some others) seem to take a special interest in this weasel Pollard? Couldn’t you just as easily work on freeing John Walker, Jr., Aldrich Ames, or Robert Hanssen? What makes Pollard so different from those other traitors?

Huh... I can’t figure it out.

Agreed. I remember the Walkers.

Sure you can.

Uh I’m not “working” on anything. George Schultz and others are.

But do you really want to compare spying for Israel to carrying arms for the Taliban post 9/11 against the US and spying for the Soviets during the Cold War?

My feelings that Pollard has been treated unfairly treatment stem from people like you comparing incomparable acts of treason.

..............

John Walker 20 years, 17 with good behavior - carried arms for the Taliban against US forces

Aldrich Ames, life sentence - spied for Soviets during critical Cold War period, caused death of several CIA assets, by his own admission compromised most of the CIA Soviet agents he knew

Robert Hanssen, life sentence, spied for Soviets during critical Cold War period, caused surveillance tunnel under new Soviet Embassy to be revealed, gave Soviets list of all double agents
