Jonathan Pollard To Be Released In November

The suggestion has been made that the feds didn't oppose this because Obama is hoping to soothe the Israelis.

Hey, want to hear another coincidence? The US government, which has adamantly refused to release Pollard to the Israelis up to now, didnít put up any opposition to release with the parole board. The WSJ also notes that the parole hearing turns out to be Ö quite unusual. As it turns out, he wasnít due for consideration for another 14 years, but then four weeks ago, something changed.

Ehhh, I can see them doing it because it really matters to Israel and doesn't matter much to Obama. I don't think it's Obama's style to try and placate Israel. He doesn't care that much. And, obviously, this doesn't offset the Iran deal.

"Here, take Pollard, I'm not sorry about the nukes," doesn't really cut it.
