    Pollard was blamed for compromising the identities of Soviet nationals spying for the U.S. These individuals were apparently identified by Ames and Hansen -- NOT Pollard. Pollard was certainly a self-aggrandizing, individual but the information he improperly released to Israeli intelligence was apparently information about IRAQ -- which they were entitled to have access to. Unfortunately, Pollard did not find a friendly person on either House or Senate Intelligence Committee to raise the issue. His Israeli handler was stupid to give him money for the information. Caspar Weinberger (of Hungarian Jewish "origin", though he converted) wrongfully blamed Pollard for the execution of these Soviet nationals working for the U.S. and Weinberger's "classified letter" to the judge in the case alleged that Israeli intelligence was infiltrated by the KGB -- and that this was the reason that such individuals were "outed." I would think that Tenet was bluffing. I doubt he has any principles.
