Interesting article here about Jonathan Pollard who spied for the Israelis (yep, that great friend and ally of the United States) and who has been described by US intelligence personnel as the "worst traitor ever".
Should he be released? If so, why? Or should he just rot in jail?

There are a few more...
The Walker family spy ring: John Jr., Michael and Arthur Walker, and friend Jerry Whitworth. Navy officers and enlisted men spying for the Soviet Union during the 80s.
Possibly the worst is former CIA agent Aldrich Ames. The Soviet mole in the agency, revealing names of virtually every Western agent -- including both U.S. agents and Soviet double agents -- who had worked against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War, and at least 12 were executed.

The difference between the Walkers, Whitworth and Ames was that they were all spying for the Soviets. Pollard was spying for the Israelis - a country that really only exists thanks to the Americans. It appears that the Israelis sold US secrets stolen by Pollard to numerous nations, including China - and ever since his capture the Jewish lobby has been trying to get him released.
Should America cave in to such pressure by its fair-weather 'ally'; and shouldn't they have punished Israel for its actions by the cutting of military supplies and funding, which would have saved the US taxpayer billions of dollars every year?

Yeah dude, Israel sucks big time. This affair is a most legitimate reasons why the Palestinians are right and should have the world's full support. Comprehensive sanctions against the Nazi-Fascist-Children-murdering-Blood-thirsty Israelis NOW!
