    ...a spy, that even their own citizens may have more allegiance to a foreign state, whether Israel or Iran. That is a REALITY, the way of the world. Jesus was born on Roman soil, so I'm sure the Romans considered him or other rebellious/anti-Rome Jews "traitors"...but they never CHOSE to be Roman. So Pollard is therefore no better or worse than any other spy: ALL SPIES ARE WILLING TO LIE TO THE NATION THEY'RE SPYING ON to get clearances, get away if there's a weak/circumstantial case against them: IT'S PART OF THE JOB, whether a national of the party they're spying on or not, they ALL know & are taught that they may need to lie to gain trust falsely at some points, so your point is moot...and frankly, naive. And if USA has an Israeli citizen willing to help CIA/NSA, you'd really say with a straight face that CIA/NSA has never & would never use an Israeli citizen as an asset? That's the silliest thing I've heard in a long time; we all know CIA/NSA better than that.
