Posted on 10/01/2011 5:51:43 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
U.S. President Barack Obama was set to release Jonathan Pollard but his vice president thwarted the move, The New York Times has reported.
According to the report, Vice President Joe Biden met last week with 15 rabbis in Boca Raton, Florida, when he was asked by one of them why Pollard, who was convicted in 1986, was still in prison.
In response to the question Biden said, President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time.
He added, If it were up to me, he would stay in jail for life.

Are you questioning that there are 15 Rabbis in Boca Raton or that 15 met with the VP?
Trust me, with all the retired Jewish folk in Boca, there are many more then 15 Rabbis living there (most retired).
15 rabbis in Boca Raton walk into a bar.
Only a schmuck like Obama would put on Tefillin today. This was shabbat. No one puts on Tefillin on shabbat. (But he really wasn't at my shul. It was a JOKE!)
And the Rosenbergs were Soviet patriots. Anyone who is caught committing espionage against the U.S.A. must be given the severest penalty under the law. It should not matter for whom they were working or why. Israel’s prime directive is its survival, as it must be. If dealing secrets to Moscow or Beijing or Caracas helps them achieve that goal they will do so. Pollard knew that going in. He stays inside for life.
This seems like Kabuki, to me. I doubt they ever had a conversation about it.
“According to some declassified reports he gave Israel nuclear secrets, who turn, gave them to the USSR in exchange for Soviet Jewry.”
I understand that Soviet jewelry was not of great quality, but they do have some great diamonds.
Ping to laugh riot posts 1 and 2.
Presidential is a stretch, but, Plugs seems to know he has nothing to lose. Your point, DumBO is going to resign or he is going to dump Biteme.
I'll bet Biden was sent out by obammy to get this message out. That way obammy gets to pander to the Jews without having to actually do anything.
Ninty nine percent of the “janitors” will believe this good cop/bad cop horse hockey too.
Obama tried! He really did try!
IOW, Biden is taking the bullet for Zero. Didn’t know he had it in him.
Don’t worry about the small handful of simpleton Pollard apologists who show up here from time to time. Obviously, Biden got the same intelligence and background info some other members of congress got. Pollard is a traitorous, worthless piece of sh’+ who should die in prison.
LOL! ...with Jeremiah Wright at his side.
If you are telling me that Biden is the SMART one of the pair then I am not going to get any sleep tonight.
That’s what I’m wondering. Maybe Biden knows something. Yeah, I know that’s a stretch, but......
If he gets re-elected, he will pull the rug out from under Israel before you can say, “Mmmm mmm mmm Barack Hussein Obama.”
None of the rest of us do either. Personally, I think FUBO chose Biden as a foil against impeachment. Would the Congress want to exchange a Marxist for an idiot? Actually, the idiot looks better all the time.
We try to keep them in jail as long as possible to discourage others
And we do everything we can to get ours out - or no one in our side would bother to take the risk
Obama is trying to destroy the country, so he lets Pollard out to encourage other spies- who know he will be lenient with them
“...he told his college roommate at Stanford he wanted to woirk for the Mossad.”
Can’t imagine that roommate wasn’t questioned during the security clearance. Wonder why it wouldn’t have come up then?
When I was going thru clearance, in my mid- to late-20’s, they went back to my home town and interviewed high school friends’ parents! It seems a college roommate would know a LOT more about the subject’s thinking than a friend’s parents. Do they really think high school kids spend hours sitting around discussing politics and philosophy with adults?
