Hayden Equates Pollard To Snowden


pollard-snowdenIs it even a dimyon? Former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden today criticized a possible deal to release Jonathan Pollard to keep Middle East peace talks going, equating Pollard to Edward Snowden, reports Politico.

Pollard was convicted of passing classified information to Israel while working as a civilian intelligence analyst for the Nay in 1987.

“I don’t think it’s a good idea just to keep some people at the table, which apparently was the purpose of this offer,” Hayden said on “Fox News Sunday,” according to¬†Politico. “The second thing I’d offer…It’s almost a sign of desperation that you would throw this in the pot in to keep the Israelis talking with the Palestinians.”

“If this were to take place, the administration would be saying ‘Pollard,’ and everyone in my old community — the intelligence community — would not be hearing ‘Pollard,’ they would be hearing ‘Snowden,’ and they would believe that this kind of behavior could actually be politically negotiated away and that would be a very disturbing message for the people who provide America with intelligence.”

  1. So is an orange an orangutan? This guy would argue they’re the same species!
    He’s so wrong it’s laughable – only it’s somebody’s life we’d be laughing at!
    How did this guy ever graduate kindergarten!

  2. The only people deserving the life sentence are Hayden and his ilk – for 300 million counts of illegal spying against the citizens of this country. Snowden might have committed an illegal act, but that fails in comparison with what the NSA establishment commits every day. Pollard did not hurt this country in any way, and has no reason to be imprisoned – other than a personal jewhating vendetta of some power-craving little men.
