Maybe he is dying from the broken heart caused by his son being a traitor.

If we'd hanged the SOB years ago this wouldn't be a problem now, would it?

I have ZERO sympathy for spies and traitors.

Aye; treat him like an Irishman that sold out his neighbors. Everybody’s got a story, and religion/faith (especially the new-found kind) justifies nothing.

I don’t think he really cared who got the information he stole; the voters will decide what is important to them.

The traitor is lucky he got a phone call. Prison’s a bitch - by design. He needs to stay there and rot for his crimes.

Pollard can blow it out his ass. Traitors used to be killed. Why don’t we do this anymore?

Sadly, No.

You will not visit your father...traitor.

Cry me a river, but maybe save some of those tears for the country and people you betrayed. Was that one of the things your father taught you how to do, traitor?

I carry no brief for Pollard. But for whatever harm he did, he has already been punished sufficiently.

Look at this:

In 2010 representatives Barney Frank (D-Mass.), Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.), Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) wrote a letter which "notes the positive impact that a grant of clemency would have in Israel, as a strong indication of the goodwill of our nation towards Israel and the Israeli people,"[48

Barney Frank and "Penis Weiner" both love him:

NO. He has been sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON.

When he completes that sentence, he will have been punished sufficiently.

Meanwhile, he should thank whatever deity it is that he actually believes in that he gets to serve out his sentence in a medium security facility, rather than Florence Supermax.

Condee Rice wanted massive spying on Israel. Should we show such putative spies zero mercy, too? Treason means, per the US Constitution, making common cause with the US’ enemies, taking up arms against the US, or giving aid and comfort to its enemies. It’s undeniable that Pollard sold some secrets to the Soviet Union, which constituted treason. But the Soviet Union is no more, and the damage he did there is now moot. His other acts of espionage were for a friend of the US, and one of them saved the world from the threat of a nuclear Saddam Hussein. The one should cancel the other, imho. Now go ahead and flame me. I’ve got things to do.

Based on what has been reported, and to me even more substantiated by the repeated refusals of cia/dod heads under administrations of both parties to countenance any thought of leniency for pollard (clinton wanted to release him as part of his peace deal, and apparently the secdef and cia head both said they would resign if he did), makes me think he did indeed pass on info to israel that they then gave raw to the soviets, with the catastrophic consequences for us intelligence assets.

Stuff and nonsense.

POS Pollard was a natural-born citizen of these United States. He accepted a position of trust in the service of these United States, his native land.

He then betrayed his native land to one or more foreign powers.

He's a traitor and a spy. He can rot in his medium security prison for the duration of his sentence.

An intelligence agent is not a spy. An intelligence agent works for his country, to gain information about foreign countries. A spy sells out his own country to foreign countries. The former is honourable and patriotic. The latter dishonest and a traitor. Pollard is a spy; a liar and a traitor.

Folks who have trouble figuring out their allegiance and loyalty should not be granted access to nationally sensitive information, and should stay the hell out of the military, intelligence, and diplomatic communities.

I see that you are flying an Israeli flag.

Are you a citizen of Israel?

I am sure his being Jewish and the fact some of the information was sold to Israel has no bearing on your belief, since he also sold or was in the process of securing information for South Africa and Red China. Good to hear from you Mrs. Dershewitz, say hello to Alan. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/venona/dece_pollard.html

I’m sure the little weasel Pollard really made his Dad proud.
