      White House: No Current Plans to Release Pollard


      Channel 10 News reported on Monday evening that President Barack Obama has no current plans to release Jonathan Pollard, despite recent revelations that the United States conducted surveillance on Israeli leaders.

      When contacted by Channel 10 regarding Pollard, officials in the White House said that Obama "stands behind what he said just before his visit to Israel. Pollard committed a very serious crime, and there is no intention to release him.”
