Cal Thomas: We Spy on Israel, But Pollard's in Jail?

John Calvin "Cal" Thomas, an American syndicated columnist, pundit, author and radio commentator, spoke of America's hypocrisy in light of the recent exposure of the US spying on its allies.

In a column which recently appeared in 550 US publicatons nationwide, Thomas called for the immediate release of Jonathan Pollard.

"When the US can spy on foreign leaders - perhaps even including the Pope - why is Jonathan Pollard still in prison after three decades for passing on information he thought important Israel's security," Thomas questioned.
