Israel’s Netanyahu Asks Obama to Release Convicted Spy Jonathan Pollard

WASHINGTON — Convicted spy Jonathan Pollard — who worked for Naval intelligence —  is back in the news again.

The Washington Post reports that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday sent a letter to President Obama asking for Pollard’s release. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1987 for spying for Israel.

The Post reported that the White House simply responded: “We have received the letter and will review it,” said Tommy Vietor, a White House spokesman.

Netanyahu read the letter at a session of parliament, the Post reported.

“Since Jonathan Pollard has now spent 25 years in prison, I believe that a new request for clemency is highly appropriate,” Netanyahu wrote. “I know that this view is also shared by former senior American officials with knowledge of the case, as well as by numerous Members of Congress.”
