Huckabee for Pollard Release

Visiting United States Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee expressed his support on Tuesday for the release of Jonathan Pollard, who has served 25 years of a life sentence for passing classified information from the U.S. to Israel.

Huckabee noted that senior figures, such as former Secretary of State George Schultz, former Central Intelligence Agency head James Woolsey and others had called for Pollard's release.
