I think people here either forgot or did not know what he did.
I am pro-Israel, but he gave the Soviet Union US Nuclear defence secrets. It was Casper Weinberger’s testimony on the damage he did that got Pollard his sentance.
Pollard did very serious harm to the US. He should never be released alive.
Pollard had nothing to do with the Soviet Union.
He was passing secrets to the Israelis, not the Soviets.
You’re probably confusing him with Aldrich Ames or Robert Hanssen.
