Somehow we missed your report on Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oran (falsely) claiming that Jonathan Pollard was a spy not for Israel but rather for some rogue organization.
He made a lot of waves with this denial. Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu had no choice but to deny that, and came out saying so. Now the Ambassador has “clarified” his denial too.
The day before the ninth of the Hebrew month of Av is Pollard’s birthday. Make a nice, long article about his disproportional imprisonment.
Many US and Israeli politicians seem uneasy about this clear case of political confinement. But hey – you’re AP. You can handle hot potatoes!
