Pollard compromised the Agency’s RASIN manual. He thought it was only going to Israel, a heinous act of treason all by itself, but one of the Israeli recipients passed it on. The manual ended up on the internet. At the time, it was a security disaster. Now, most of the information has perished, but it gave away our state-of-the-art knowledge of our enemies’ signals. Ask any current or former Agency employee if this guy should be released. You will get a resounding “NO!”
Thanks. I certainly remember the Walker’s compromising our Navy.
And on the flip side, I’m amazed Israel let Vanunu loose, though I guess they keep him on a short lease; being that the cat is out of the bag on Dimona.
Probably unintended accidental advertising came out of it that has held some muzzie nations at bay.
Until Iran gets their nuclear weapons.
