Can you name anyone else in the history of the US who served a life sentence for handing over information to an alley?
People have done less time when caught spying for Cuba, and the USSR.
My son is careful not to hand over military secrets to his own Dad, who has an even higher clearance than he does. He sure as heck wouldn’t hand it over to a foreign power, even an ally.
Death to traitors.
Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. And cry me a freakin’ river while you are at it.
“Pollard also confessed to passing a TS/SCI document to the Pakistani government in the hopes it would take him on as a spy. The Pakistanis rejected his offer. Pollard then became involved with numerous other foreign governments’ representatives in Washington in an attempt to be a middle-man weapons broker, selling for a profit their weapon systems to Afghanistan via South Africa. Pollard admitted he was “addicted to money” stating, “It consumed him.”
Pollard was never charged for these crimes.”
