  • Why Jonathan Pollard is still in Prison? (revealing archive)

    11/17/2015 10:12:28 AM PST · by John S Mosby · 14 replies ^ | 28 June 2002 | Edwin Black
    "On January 7, 2002, former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu stepped through the two-doored entry chamber of a prison sallyport. After the first fudge-brown steel and armored glass door slowly closed right-to-left behind him, Netanyahu passed his hand beneath a black light reader along the left wall. It illuminated a small security stamp on his hand, not unlike the type disco clubs use. Behind opaque, silver-tinted windows, watchful security officers in the control room completed their checklist, approving Netanyahu's access....... The prison was not in Israel, it was in North Carolina. Netanyahu had flown to Raleigh Durham and then driven...

    I really feel like slamming some of the chickens**t American Jews who regularly comment - both on this blog and on Twitter and Facebook - that Jonathan Pollard should rot in jail because what he did was so terrible they're afraid of being accused of having 'dual loyalties' if they actually question Pollard's life sentence. Much of the infamous Cap Weinberger memo (that Pollard's lawyers were never allowed to see) has been declassified, and it shows that much of the US government argument for keeping Pollard imprisoned is based on lies and mischaracterizes what Weinberger (an anti-Semite in his...

    Former US Secretary of State who served under Ronald Reagan joins list of senior security officials calling for Pollard's release. Former US secretary of state George Shultz has joined a long list of former senior American and Israeli security officials calling upon US President Barack Obama to release Jonathan Pollard. In a letter obtained by The Jerusalem Post Tuesday night, Shultz wrote that he was impressed that the people who are best informed about the classified material Pollard passed to Israel now favor his release. He cited former CIA director James Woolsey, former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee Dennis...

    Reagan's War, Not Charlie Wilson's Media Bias: Hollywood would have us believe that Democrats defeated the evil empire in Afghanistan, and that President Reagan played only a minor role and even helped pave the way to 9/11. If you think Hollywood's idea of a Christmas movie being one about the Soviet defeat in Afghanistan is strange, even stranger is the plot line. "Charlie Wilson's War," which opened Friday, manages to reduce the president who won the Cold War to a background footnote. Charlie Wilson was a pro-abortion, Equal Rights Amendment-supporting congressman widely known as "the liberal from Lufkin." To his...

    All hell -- or at least most of it -- has broken loose in Pakistan. Some say President Musharraf has over-stepped his bounds. Others say he has not even yet gone far enough. One thing that is clear is that the United States is not altogether sure what its position is, and that is not a good thing. What is fact is that events are changing very fast in the Muslim nation. We know that President Musharraf wanted a court decision in favor of his recent re-election for President, which is in question because critics say he should have been...

    Reaganaut Realism Should Guide Foreign Policy by Richard V. Allen Human Events, Dec 04, 2006 This is the fourth in an occasional series of exclusive articles in which leading conservatives who served in the Reagan Administration explain how they believe the principles of Reagan conservatism ought to be applied today and in the coming years. This week, Richard V. Allen, who served as Reagan’s first National Security advisor, addresses foreign policy. These days, as foreign policy and national security challenges become ever more threatening, complex and costly, I am often asked how I think Ronald Reagan would assess the range...

    Lt. Col. Mark Mitchell is a Special Forces officer who's been deployed almost nonstop since 9/11. He won the Distinguished Service Cross for leading the action that put down the uprising at the Mazar-e-Sharif prison in Afghanistan in November 2001. (That story is included in the book Home of the Brave: Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror, by Caspar Weinberger and Wynton C. Hall.) Mitchell saw heroic, life-saving efforts by others daily. "It happens all the time, but it's not the type of stuff that gets reported," he says.

    If there is one overriding impression that readers will take away from Home of the Brave: Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror -- the last book by the late Caspar Weinberger and Wynton C. Hall -- it is the image of American Soldiers who are different from the rest of us: under attack, riding, running and even crawling toward the sound of the guns.

    It is the Memorial Day weekend, and a lot of people's historical perspective is lost on this. In fact, Cap Weinberger died not long ago. He wrote a book, "Home of the Brave, Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror." The Forge Press published the book. Home of the Brave, Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror. Cap Weinberger's book recounts the untold stories of 19 of the most highly decorated soldiers and sailors and airmen and Marines fighting in the war on terror. I got a copy of this book when I...

    The Washington Post raised eyebrows when it assigned Ann Scott Tyson to review former Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger’s posthumously published new book, "Home of the Brave: Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror." Weinberger’s last work has already been widely praised by former Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman, the 28th Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, General P.X. Kelley (ret.), the 2.4 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and conservative media superstar Sean Hannity...

    Stories of military bravery go largely unreported in the American press. We celebrate our movie stars, television kings and queens, anchor reporters, and professional athletes in a constant parade of glitter and extravagance, but for the men and women doing the real work of the nation, America has only the most fleeting of attention and respect, if that. That was the point of my father's...

    Soldiers who misbehave make the front page. Soldiers who perform nobly do not. When SFC Smith was awarded the Medal of Honor, the New York Times put the story on page A-13. I did a Nexis search on "New York Times and Abu Ghraib." It came back with more than 1,000 hits. The Times has run exactly one story that mentions Sgt. Peralta, and he had to share billing in it with SFC Smith and Sgt. Hester. "A nation that ignores, or, worse, attacks its heroes erodes and disparages its own ethos," warn Mr. Weinberger and Mr. Hall.

    "I then remembered the time Cap told me his favorite part of being secretary of Defense: visiting the troops. When he’d visit a ship he said he would make sure to go down to the engine rooms where no one ever went. 'They were always surprised and thankful someone had taken the time to notice them,' Cap said. 'They were grateful someone had remembered.' We feel the great untold story of this war has been the acts of heroism and hope the mainstream media refuses to report. But I now wonder..."

    For the last two years, former secretary of defense Caspar Weinberger and Wynton C. Hall had been working on their forthcoming book, HOME OF THE BRAVE: Honoring the Unsung Heroes in the War on Terror (A Forge hardcover). The book chronicles the heroic stories of 19 soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines and is said to contain a powerful defense of the Iraq War and the men and women in uniform Weinberger loved and served. Sources close to the book report that early reactions to the manuscript have drawn strong praise. Conservative commentator Sean Hannity has called the book, "The most...

    Caspar W. Weinberger, who oversaw the Pentagon's biggest peacetime spending increase as President Reagan's defense secretary and later was indicted for his role in the Iran-Contra affair, died Tuesday. -snip- Weinberger served as President Nixon's budget director and was given the nickname ''Cap the Knife'' for his efforts to slash government spending. Yet Weinberger's best-known role may have been as Reagan's defense secretary, when the classic cold warrior presided over a cumulative $2 trillion in military spending. -snip- it was also during this time that reports surfaced of excesses at the Pentagon, from $600 toilet seats to $400 hammers.
