    Eitan is 100% correct. The US Department of Justice and the judge were in cahoots. The Department of Justice fed the judge all sorts of anti-Israel statements about Israel's support of South Africa. At that time , I raised the question of “how could Pollard, a very low level analyst, get that much information that the government could claim substantial harm”. I also questioned the fact that none of Pollard's supervisors who were required to certify his documented " need to know" for every document that Pollard had procured were never, in any way, admonished or punished for their breach in security. I was part of the camp have believed that "Pollard should be locked up and the key thrown away." Now I know much more, I regret my previous views. As a military and intelligence operative I fully believe that Pollard should be released immediately and that several of the attorneys who served in the Justice Department and sabotaged any vestige that Pollard had of being given fair hearing should be punished for their transgresses.
