Israeli Spy May be Released from U.S. Prison
The U.S. is reportedly considering releasing Jonathan Pollard from prison to keep Mideast peace talks alive. The release would be a coup for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and may help keep him talking about a Palestinian state. Pollard, a U.S. Navy intelligence analyst sentenced to life for selling secrets to Israel, may be freed in a bid to secure concessions, such as the release of Palestinian prisoners, sources say. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has made a last-minute trip to the region to jump-start stalled talks.
