Pollard is not guilty of Treason. The crime of Treason would have required, and still requires, that one offers aid and comfort to an Enemy. Israel is not an enemy. Treason is a capital offense -- constitutionally the ONLY Federal capital offense.
Those who are hot with desire to string Pollard up are stringing the Constitution up with him.

You don't think stealing US Intelligence and selling it to the enemy qualifies as treason?

In my experience, my friends don't break into my house and steal my personal papers and information.

According to a friend of mine who served in the IDF in the 60’s, Pollard gave Israel information that allowed them carry out the attack on Iraq’s breeder reactors that the French had built for them. The timing of this attack was at a point when most of the money had been spent on the reactor and it was going to be on line in less than a year. Why the United States didn’t provide this information is unknown, and perhaps they did provide it through Pollard. He wouldn’t be the first scapegoat ever used by our government.
