I have ZERO sympathy for spies and traitors.
SKYPE has video...let him use that.
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.
