Who is Jonathan Pollard?

A heckler interrupted President Barack Obama's speech in Jerusalem Thursday, calling for the release of Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. intelligence analyst convicted of spying for Israel. Pollard has served nearly 3 decades in a U.S. prison. CNN's Wolf Blitzer reports on the Jonathan Pollard case and the shadow it casts on US-Israeli ties.

    If it is true that this was an Arab Israeli heckler, speaking Arabic and not even mentioning Pollard, it would be nice to see Wolf ponying up that correction.

    With the rate of advancement in technology over the last 30 years I doubt very much that anything he gave them is of any nation security importance. Pollard should be deported to Israel and use the event as a positive instead of letting the socialist media beat it over the head with a negative. Think about it for a second. If you heard someone gave away the plans to the model T Ford would you want to pay to guard him and give him 3 hots and a cot? That's what Americans are doing in this case.
