    Pollard loses life sentence appeal

    According to this article, from the BBC, an American who sold secrets to Israel has lost an appeal to have his life sentence reduced:

    Jonathan Pollard, a former civilian US naval intelligence analyst, was caught in 1985 after handing over more than 1,000 of pages of classified material. He argued he had not been given adequate legal assistance but US judges said his case was not convincing. The Pollard case dramatically soured ties between Israel and the US who are normally seen as the best of friends. The Israeli government, which has given Jonathan Pollard citizenship, has repeatedly called for his release.
    Of course, Israel would call for his release, given it has benefitted from US military secrets. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
