Our resident elk will be along shortly to remind us that at least we don't have Hillary. That would have been worse.

I recall it was really serious, but is all the outrage and emnity here just Trump-based?  Or Israel-based?  The guy did almost 30 years in jail, then on parole since.

Spies John Walker (convicted '83) and Anthony Pelton (convicted '85) were convicted prior to Pollard ('87), are still in prison, all three were given life sentences what makes Pollard so special for time served?

Might it be spying for friendly government, rather than Russia for the other two?

Governments have to keep fighting for their spies, even if they are POSs.  It is so the other spies feel they will never be utterly abandoned. This accomplishes two other things. One, makes them a bit harder to turn. Two, it makes them more likely to spill only the beans they absolutely have to and not one more.

Some of ya seem to be a little slow in seeing the difference between the three cases . . 

Pollard spied for Israel - and the fact is that the pro-Israel faction in the US national security Blob has a huge influence.
