For me, Pollard betrayed America. These people didn't give secrets away. They were trying to make money. It wasn't really an honest way, but this seems to be a case of entrapment. They were basically set up. They weren't spying and what not. I am not a legal expert, but I am not sure how useful these arrests were. What do they accomplish? The FBI agent wasn't a real African minister. He was used to set these guys up. Big deal.
