Former CIA Chief on Pollard: Pretend he Isn’t Jewish and Release Him
WSJ – Regarding Martin Peretz’s “The Mendacious Movement to Free a Convicted Spy” (op-ed, June 25): I recommended against clemency for Jonathan Pollard early in the first Clinton administration when I was director of Central Intelligence, but now, nearly two decades later, I support his release. What would I say has changed? The passage of time.
When I recommended against clemency, Pollard had been in prison less than a decade. Today he has been incarcerated for over a quarter of a century under his life sentence.
