    In a democratic country, a sentence should be proportionate to the harm done. The problem with applying that to Pollard is that we don't know how much harm was done. We know he transmitted to Israel, among about 2000 other documents, one of America's most secret documents: the RASIN books. These detail the entire scope of our nation's signals’ intelligence efforts. (The NSA's budget is at least twice the CIA's.) The problem is we don't know what Israel did with the "take." They have stonewalled every effort to find out. If Israel comes clean, and gives us a detailed account of what they did with Pollard's product, and if it turns out that the harm done was not as bad as the sentencing judge thought, he should get clemency. You need only consult this book: Capturing Jonathan Pollard, Naval Institute Press, 2006, By Ronald Olive. A good summary is here: http://recolumns.blogspot.com/2010/10/poor-jonathan-pollard.html. Olive was the chief ONI officer who tracked Pollard down when others ignored the evidence. He also led the delegation to Israel to take them up on their offer to “disclose all Israel knew” about Pollard. What he got was the same thing every U.S. inquiry has gotten: ye ole stonewall.
