Jonathan Pollard could be freed as early as November 21st. Reports state that the U.S. Justice Department will not oppose the release of the man convicted of treason once he completes the full thirty years of his 30 to life sentence at that time.
In 1985 Jonathan Pollard was convicted of selling secret information to Israeli agents while he worked as an analyst for America’s Naval intelligence service.
The news comes as a surprise since for years American intelligence officials have taken a strong stand against letting Pollard out of jail.
Rumors abound that the decision was made as part of an attempt to placate the Israeli government over the recent nuclear deal reached with Iran.
