Peres: Obama Agreed to ‘Consider’ Deal to Free Pollard

10

peres-obamaUS government attorneys will consider a deal to release Jonathan Pollard from prison, according to President Shimon Peres. Peres said that he had discussed Pollard’s case with President Barack Obama in their meeting Wednesday, and Obama said that the US Attorney General would consider an “offer” Peres said he had mentioned to Obama.

Peres made the comments as he emerged from his meeting with Obama. Earlier, Peres had said that he would make a special request to Obama for the release of Pollard during this, the outgoing Israeli president’s last official trip to the US. Prior to Peres’ arrival, the Office of the President had submitted an official request to the White House to advance Pollard’s release.

“I made a specific offer, but I won’t go into details,” Peres told reporters Wednesday, adding that he had discussed the offer with Pollard family members before presenting it to Obama. “If I give too many details it will just ruin things,” Peres said, adding that Obama had agreed to weigh the offer. “I can’t say that he responded positively on the spot. I don’t want to add to what he said, which was that the US Attorney General would become involved,” Peres said.

  1. This is the slippery talk of slippery politicians when they want to show action without their committing themselves to anything. Like this, Peres can go back to Israel claiming he achieved something no one else was able to achieve (a worthless promise from a worthless person).

  2. I SUSPECT PERES AGREED ALL JEWS WILL EVACUATE ISRAEL AND MOVE TO UGANDA.

    LISTEN…YOU KNOW THAT PERES DIDNT PROMISE TO INVITE HIM TO THE NEXT LAG B’OMER PARTY

  3. Why did he open his mouth to the public altogether? Each of these empty promises and non-development innuendos hurts the man and his wife so much! Is it so hard to do as the Mishna teaches, ” S’yog Lachochma Shtika?”

  4. Better yet, he messed up with Eretz Yisroel, by selling out the country , and now he wants a legacy together with obama (whatever his name is), so he is trumping Pollard up for a release, in truth we want Pollard released and also Rubashkin, but it will not be to peres’s credit, only our tefilois!!!!!!

  5. Wow, Barry said he would “consider” it? He must get an award for that. Bush,Clinton,Bush,Obama, are all phonies.
