Stuff and nonsense.

.....

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.

Condee called for spying. She didn’t say “let’s recruit more intelligence agents and register them with the Israeli government.” She wanted spying. Nothing personal, I’m sure. America spies on its allies and its enemies. So does everyone else. Some have been caught spying on Israel, and sentenced to less than a decade of prison. This is the ordinary way of doing business. Furthermore, the information that Pollard passed to Israel, regarding, for example, Syrian poison gas programs, Iraqi nuclear programs, were highly relevant intelligence that the US had agreed to provide Israel, but which his superiors were ordering him to withold for nefarious reasons. I don’t say that he wasn’t a spy. But that’s not unusual in intelligence work, and ultimately, the good that he did by committing that crime outweighs the harm, and “mercy becomes kings more than their crowns.” Of course, if you insist on your pound of flesh, well...

Are you a citizen of the United States, or of Israel?

I'm curious as to which conflict of interest is motivating your obfuscation of Pollard's crimes, your attempts to excuse his inexcusable crimes, and your offering of bad advice to the United States regarding the release from prison of a dishonest, disloyal spy and traitor.

Why do you not ask for the release from prison of Aldrich Ames or Robert Hanssen?

What agenda are you pursuing that would be served by the release of one scumbag spy, and not others?
