60 Minutes Releases Rare Archived Video of Pollard

The American CBS News outlet has re-released an interview with Jonathan Pollard on their website. Originally aired on 60 Minutes approximately 25 years ago, interviewer Mike Wallace visited Pollard in jail, who, while acknowledging he deserved to be punished, alleged anti-Israel bias from Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. Pollard also stated US investigators presented him with a list of prominent Jewish-Americans and pressured him to finger any possible spies.

Wallace also interviewed prosecutor Joseph DiGenova, who insisted that Pollard is a liar as well as an ailing Anne Pollard, Jonathan's then-wife who stated she was being withheld medical treatment while in jail.
