From The Jewish Tribune Canada: The former Director of the CIA under President Bill Clinton, R. James Woolsey, and former top US. Middle East negotiator, Dennis Ross, have each recently stated that convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard should be released after having already served twenty years in prison. Mr.Woolsey said, “Now that he has served 20 years of a prison sentence, my view is that a 20 year sentence, I think, is enough and I think the close relationship between United States and Israel as fellow democracies is also a consideration so, at this point, I think Pollard has served a long enough sentence” ( Israel National News, January 23, 2007).
Mr. Ross stated that Pollard’s sentence was excessive and that he should be released, noting that, “Pollard has been in jail for so long that whatever facts he might know would have little if any effect on national security today.” Ross also said that he had told Presidents George Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush that Pollard should be released. He said, however, that President Bush is presently showing no interest in releasing Pollard.
