The job required high-level security clearances, and the Navy, which knew nothing about the C.I.A.'s assessment, eventually gave them to Pollard. His initial assignments dealt with the study of surface-ships systems in non-Communist countries, and, according to Pollard's superiors, his analytical work was excellent. While at Suitland, however, he repeatedly told colleagues far-fetched stories about ties he had with Mossad, the Israeli foreign-intelligence agency, and about his work as an operative in the Middle East.
Pollard had help; did any of his supervisors or peers get nailed?

"Pollard had help"
Agreed, either it was poor security review or he was sponsored.
The hiring of such a flagrant screwball/zealot is curious say the least.
