Former CIA Chief: Pollard Relase Only on Humanitarian Grounds

Former CIA and NSA director Michael Hayden said this week that if Jonathan Pollard were to be released, it should be on humanitarian grounds and not as part of a deal that would see Israel freeing hundreds of terrorists from its prisons.

Hayden spoke to Newsmax amid reports that the U.S. had offered Israel to free Pollard in exchange for Israel releasing over 400 Arab terrorists and freezing construction in Judea and Samaria so that peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA) can continue.
