But for Israel, it's stupid to put it back in the public eye. You're just pulling open an old wound and rubbing salt in it. For crimes of international espionage at this level, there are two ways out of prison - dead or in exchange for somebody on the other side in the same position. When treason is at the heart of the matter, the criminal is doubly damned and it becomes much harder to find that matching trading chip on the other side. If Pollard indeed cost American spies their covers and lives, no such trade will be possible. He knew the crime he commited, he knew the consequences, and he got caught. Now he will pay the price, for the rest of his days. Anything less is a betrayal of America's intelligence community, and an invitation for the same sick crap to happen again. Omega, anybody?
