    To my knowledge, Israel never returned to the US the nearly one million pages Pollard stole from US intel agencies and gave to Israeli officials, despite several formal requests, including a special trip made by the US State Dept's Counselor General, who was rebuffed. There were, and still are, many rumors that Israel traded some of these documents to the Soviet Union, in return for increasing the number of exit visas for Russian Jews.
