News of the criminal trial for an alleged 9/11 perpetrator reminds me that Jonathan Pollard got no trial -- just an open plea "bargain" followed by a life sentence. The alleged 9/11 person is set for a fair trial; the fair trial not granted Pollard. Pollard's ongoing incarceration should, I think, be troubling to people who believe in justice. Would, say, a American caught giving secrets to Britain be in prison for life. I don't think so. I don't think someone giving an ally informatiion without authorization would get more than a slap on the wrist. Pollard should be proof that Israel and the US are not really allies. And now, I sense that after his death in prison, the Pollardphobes will demand his remains stay behind bars. Wonder where Bibi is on this and,, say, Haaretz?
