Jonathan Pollard's Status Has Not Changed

The Washington Times reports that spokesmen for both the White House and National Security Council said yesterday that incarcerated Israeli spy, Jonathan Pollard's, "legal status has not changed." This, despite efforts by the Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, and the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Danny Ayalon, to raise awareness of his plight to senior government officials, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The quote attributed to WH Press Secretary Scott McClellan does not appear in transcripts of the past two days' press conferences; it must have been from an interview. AIPAC, AJC and B'nai Brith had no comment.
