Letter From Peres to Obama Asks for Release of Jonathan Pollard
by News Editor
Washington Post/AP – Israeli President Shimon Peres has dispatched a letter to President Barack Obama asking him to release convicted spy Jonathan Pollard.
The former U.S. Navy intelligence analyst received a life sentence in 1987 for leaking classified documents to Israel.
Many Israelis believe the sentence was too harsh, and officials often demand his release.
