Jonathan Pollard. US Prisoner since 26 Years

1. Jonathan Pollard was a civilian American Naval intelligence analyst. In the mid 1980's (circa 1983-1984), Pollard discovered that information vital to Israel's security was being deliberately withheld by certain elements within the U.S. national security establishment.
2. Israel was legally entitled to this vital security information according to a 1983 Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries.
3. The information being withheld from Israel included Syrian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare capabilities - being developed for use against Israel. It also included information on ballistic missile development by these countries and information on planned terrorist attacks against Israeli civilian targets.
4. When Pollard discovered this suppression of information and asked his superiors about it, he was told to "mind his own business", and that "Jews get nervous talking about poison gas; they don't need to know." ...
55. On November 21, 2011, Jonathan Pollard will enter the 27th year of his life sentence, with no end in sight.

Barack Obama, release him now!

You know why the US President is not releasing him? Israel doesn't hold in custody 1000 Americans for exchange.
