    Sen. Marco Rubio called out Sen. Ted Cruz by name Monday night for voting to "weaken U.S. intelligence programs," escalating their increasingly intense rivalry for the Republican presidential nomination. Calling it a distinctive issue in the campaign for the White House, the Florida senator said, "At least two of my colleagues in the Senate aspiring to the presidency, Sen. Cruz in particular, have voted to weaken the U.S. intelligence programs just in the last month and a half. And a weakening of our intelligence gathering capabilities leaves America vulnerable." Rubio, speaking before The Wall Street Journal CEO Council at the...

    During the "Cuban Missile Crisis"in 1962 we were led to believe that President John F. Kennedy was standing up to the Soviet Union by demanding that their missiles be pulled out of Cuba and imposing a blockade. But in a backroom in Washington, Attorney General Robert Kennedy was meeting Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin. They cut a deal to withdraw Soviet missiles from Cuba in exchange for US missiles being pulled out of Turkey. Also apparently in the deal a winding down of Cuban exile raids on Cuba and a pledge to not invade Cuba to overthrow the Castro regime like...

    Longtime prisoner Jonathan Pollard has just left the Federal Correction Complex in Butner, North Carolina, after over 30 years of being held on espionage charges, his wife Esther announced shortly after 11 a.m. Friday. Esther and a number of Pollard's closest confidantes were waiting to greet Pollard as he first tasted freedom, at 4:15 a.m. EST; from there they will set off for New York to begin their lives anew. There in New York, a probation officer will be assigned to Pollard by the US Department of Justice, and will inspect to make sure the 61-year-old stays within all of...

    Jonathan Pollard, an American convicted of spying for Israel, is set to be released on parole from a US prison. The former US Navy intelligence officer, now 61, was caught selling classified documents in 1985 and given a life sentence two years later. Pollard has been serving his sentence at a prison in North Carolina. His parole terms bar him from leaving the US without permission for five years. He has said he wants to move to Israel to be united with his second wife. Successive Israeli governments have tried to secure Pollard's freedom, in a case that has caused...

    "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...

    In 1981, Israel launched Operation Opera and directly saved millions of Israeli and Middle Eastern lives, while also making conditions far safer for Americans and for the western world. The task was clear and simple. Israel bombed Iraq's Osirak Nuclear Reactor and prevented Saddam Hussein from wreaking havoc in the Middle East. The strategy was reasonable and spoke to a reasonable era. Today's buffoonery is shameful and dangerous. The following is a possible solution and, at the very least, constitutes a sensible path. In 2006, those who opposed then President Bush yelled that he should have gone to war against...

    Leave it to Team Obama to expect Jews to accept a Hail Mary. The Justice Department confirmed Tuesday that Jonathan Pollard, who spied for Israel, was granted parole and will be released by November, after having served 30 years in prison. The news came almost a week after Justice officials said they wouldn’t object if a parole panel granted his release. Israel and many American Jews have long sought Pollard’s freedom, arguing that he’d spied for an ally, Israel, not an enemy, and that his life sentence was harsher than what most other spies received.

    The Obama administration is preparing to release Jonathan Pollard, who was convicted in 1987 of spying for Israel, in hopes of alleviating tensions over the Iranian nuclear deal, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. According to US officials cited in the report, some are pushing for Pollard’s release in a matter of weeks, while others say it could take months. Still other US officials mentioned in the report denied any link between the Iranian nuclear deal and Pollard’s potential release. ABC News’ managing editor tweeted Friday night that US officials had confirmed to ABC that the former Navy analyst was...

    The Obama administration is preparing to release convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, according to U.S. officials, some of whom hope the move will smooth relations with Israel in the wake of the Iran nuclear deal. Such a move would end a decadeslong fight over Mr. Pollard, who was arrested on charges of spying for Israel in 1985 and later sentenced to life in prison. The case has long been a source of tension between the U.S. and Israel, which has argued that a life sentence for spying on behalf of a close U.S. partner is too harsh. For decades, Israel...

The newspaper reported Friday that some U.S. officials are pushing for Jonathan Pollard’s release in a “matter of weeks,” but it may have to wait until his parole consideration date in November.

    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...

    No devotee of Yes Minister, yesteryear’s BBC’s classic, can forget St. Edward’s Hospital – that spanking new cutting edge facility that had no patients or medical personnel. Nonetheless, St. Edward’s hustled and bustled, a veritable hive of activity and creative energy. For 15-months since its much-ballyhooed inauguration, an administrative staff of 500 bureaucrats filled the hospital’s offices, pushed papers and generated red tape. Sounds exaggerated? A bit over-the-top for real life? Not really. John Kerry’s peace project, for example, replicates the parody’s blueprints with mind-blowing precision. It is for diplomacy what St. Edward’s was for health care – an incredible...

    Editor's note: Esther Pollard is the wife of imprisoned spy Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst who was convicted in 1985 of one count of passing classified information to an ally, Israel, and sentenced to life imprisonment in spite of a plea agreement that was to spare him such a sentence. Jonathan became the only person in the history of the United States to receive life imprisonment for spying for an ally. Esther discusses recent developments related to a bombshell lawsuit filed on behalf of her husband charging that Jonathan's lawyer at the time of his sentencing, Richard...

    Jimmy Carter weighed in on Friday on whether Jonathan Pollard should be released from prison as part of current Middle East peace talks, saying he would support freedom for the spy if the Israelis were to fully accept the deal from Secretary of State John Kerry. Carter said in an interview that he would agree to the release of Pollard, the U.S. naval intelligence analyst currently serving a life prison sentence after a 1987 conviction for providing classified information to Israel, only if certain conditions were met. “If the Israelis would agree to accept John Kerry’s proposal, if Pollard was...

    Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas did not announce his walkout from the negotiations with Israel or directly turn down the package of far-reaching Israeli concessions which US Secretary of State John Kerry assembled with Binyamin Netanyahu early Wednesday, April 1. He simply turned his back on the commitment he made ahead of the talks to refrain from unilateral applications to UN bodies while they were in progress. As soon as the US Secretary flew off to Brussels, he sent out applications for “the independent Palestinian state” to join 12 UN agencies as members. This was after the Palestinian leader upped his...
