"Friends Don't Spy on Friends" - Yeah, Right
"Friends Don't Spy on Friends"
How many times have we heard that in regard to Jonathan Pollard?
Wikileaks just came out with revelations that Bush and Condy wanted to know a lot of info about Israel - including personal information of Israeli leaders.
There was a huge push for President Bush to commute Pollard's sentence at the end of his term in office 2 years ago. Unfortunately, this was unsuccessful.
I wonder if the basis of Bush's silent refusal was to have some leverage in case Israel catches one of their spies. They would be able to do a spy trade like President Obama later did with the Russians. I hope this is not keeping President Obama from a commutation coming from him. There is significant pressure now to do so, but if this spy program is still going on (of which there is no proof to the contrary), Obama may want this extra card up his sleeve while a Jew rots in prison.
At least now armed with this information, we can call his bluff.
