That would be Jonathan Pollard... "Jonathan Jay Pollard (born August 7, 1954, Galveston, Texas) worked as an American civilian intelligence analyst before being convicted of spying for Israel. He received a life sentence in 1987." What nation does the CIA consider the biggest counterintelligence threat in the agency's Near East Division, "the group that oversees spying across the Middle East"? (It's not Iran) Should we ask Mitt? "If Mitt Romney wants to utterly bungle his visit to Israel, and he might, he ought to call for the release of convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard . "Pro-Israel types, wheeling out John McCain on their side, are already pressuring Romney to do so. And Romney, a relative ignoramus on foreign policy matters, might actually be thinking of playing the 'Pollard card.' Reports the Jerusalem Post : "In his only public comments about Pollard so far, Romney told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in December that he was 'open to examining' the case. "While one Jewish leader said afterward that he was confident that Romney would see the justice in Pollards case once he studied it, another Jewish leader present at the meeting said he was disappointed Romney did not call for Pollards release. "If he does, most of the U.S. national security community will come down on Romney like, well, a ton of halvah."
