Don't be ludicrious, Gary Powers simply was a pilot flying a spy plane.
Pollard over a period of time stole hundreds of this nations top secrets and gave them to a foreign power. One that has its own interests at heart.
Now Israel has been an ally but at times they also have attacked American soldiers.
Pollard deserved to have been hung, still should be.

To this day, Israel is selling cutting edge radar to the Chinese, in addition to a whole bunch of other stuff.
At one point, we had to step in and forbid/cancel a done deal that an Israeli defense company had with the PLA.
Israel is NOT an ally in the same way Britain is. Israel is all about Israel, and would step over our dead body to maintain that status.
