  1. I have mixed feelings about spies ever being released from prison. Pollard? I'm conflicted. But I don't know enough about the case to have an informed and sensible POV. John Walker? Never release!

  3. RT,

    Want to know more about Pollard? Read my magazine piece, which I link to above.

    As for John Walker, he was, in a way, released from federal prison. He died.
