Except it was Iraq, not Iran.
Anyway, let the little weasel Pollard pay for 15 minutes on Skype if he’s so interested in watching his father’s funeral. His father must have been so proud of him....
It was Iran too, but Iran was a sort of alley to Israel at the time (with a crumbling relationship).
It’s believed Pollard revealed that the US had been double dealing, and providing arms to both sides of the Iran-Iraq war, specifically, chemicals and cluster munitions to Saddam.
The information the U.S. ignored and didn’t share with its allies included Syrian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare capabilities. It also included information on ballistic missile development by these countries and information on planned terrorist attacks. Pollard is the only person ever charged with giving information to U.S. allies! Those who gave information to our enemies were given far shorter sentences. The plea bargain promise of the U.S. government was breached in this case. He was to receive a sentence of a few years in proportion to the crime. There has been a lot of anti-Israel falsehoods about Pollard and his case perpetuated. History will call Pollard a hero who placed human safety first, even at the risk of going to jail for his choice to shared information that could save millions of people.
