“….the depth of Pollard’s info that he passed on to Russia (amongst others) was as damaging as the Rosenberg’s was during that era.  Devastatingly state of the art. Virtually everything that we knew/know about nukes….” (US Navy nuclear weapons expert exclusive to Veterans Today)

It is the third  day since the Israeli government demanded the release of “nuclear super-spy” Jonathan Pollard.  Tel Aviv calls it a “spy swap” but it isn’t spies they are offering but rather the lives of Palestinian hostages.  Israel has promised that, if the US releases Pollard, it will hold off its plan to begin additional “resettlement” operations against Palestinian villages on the West Bank.

In the past, Israel, criticized for “ethnic cleansing” operations against Palestinians paralleling Serbian operations in Bosnia 0r those of the apartheid regime in South Africa, has resorted to the use of “blitzkrieg” tactics with the predicted high levels of civilian casualties.

Officials of the Obama administration have, thus far, failed to give in to Israeli demands.  In an almost identical scenario in 1979 in Iran, American diplomats were held hostage for 444 days, released only after coverts shipments of high-tech weaponry were promised by the Reagan administration, weapons still being used by Hizbollah fighters in Lebanon today.

President Obama has little reason to submit to Netanyahu’s demands as the Israeli leader has failed to keep to any agreements he has made in the past.

    “President Obama has little reason to submit to Netanyahu’s demands as the Israeli leader has failed to keep to any agreements he has made in the past.”

    This is supposed to be a deterrent or disincentive to “giving in” to Benny’s petitions?

    Take another look at the video of his presentation before the UN recently… five will get you ten that he will release Pollard before the elections this fall.

    Mark these words, and remember “I told ya so!”

    America, once “the land of the Free and the home of the Brave” is a gone Goose… greased, stuffed, fucked and roasted to a cinder. The hand puppet President, a Kosher Oreo…, bought, paid for, bagged, gagged, sold out and delivered downriver.

    It was an act of mercy not to have executed this traitor: Jonathan Pollard. If he had not been Jewish and spying for Israel, Pollard would have been executed. We note how Israel took Pollard’s handiwork and promptly traded our national security to the Soviets. Some friend’s eh? Will the ‘President’ cave? Are there no real Americans left in our Government, in our intelligence community, that will stand up to the Israelis and prevent Pollard’s release?

    Sadly, we were giving the Russians nuclear documents long before the Rosenbergs were busted.(reference “Major Jordan’s Diary)Jordan was involded in the “lend lease” program during WWII. He discovered(in those shipments) documents and materials needed to develop the bomb.

    Jonathan Pollard was the worst spy in the world. Worst in this case means the least competent. Any good spy knows how not to stand out. Pollard stood out like a sore thumb because of his bad behavior at work: rude, obnoxious, unproductive (at his supposed job), and disruptive. His boss was desperate to fire him. Abuse of classified information is one of the few acceptable reasons for firing federal workers so his boss decided to try investigating Pollard for that. The rest is history.
    If Pollard was so incompetent yet so successful, we must ask how many competent spies are still at work. Thousands, at least. We must assume Israel, China, Russia, and anyone else has access to all our secrets. Anything we invent will be used against us. Money talks; most men have their price. China has most of our money! Israel has all the money we give it every year. Suggestion: let’s give up our empire. Let Germany and Japan build the next generation of warplanes and warships. Let THEM defend themselves so we don’t have to do it. Israel, unlike Iraq and Iran, actually has working nuclear (or NookYeller) weapons. We don’t need to defend Israel from Iran. They don’t appreciate it so let’s just stop wasting our money on other countries.
    Elect Ron Paul and bring all our troops home. Worried about terrists? Catch them at our borders.
