Clinton did not tell Netanyahu Pollard would be freed. At the Wye River conference, which lasted almost a month, a day or so before signing the agreement that had been reached, Netanyahu told Clinton that he must take Pollard home with him or there would be no agreement. When Clinton reported this conversation, the Director of CIA threatened to resign if Pollard were released, the Defense Department became furious, and congress threatened hostile hearings if Clinton agreed. When Clinton told Netanyahu no, Netanyahu said there would be no agreement. But the Israelis signed the agreement anyway. A few days after returning to Tel Aviv, Netanyahu abrogated the agreement.
