Dear Mr. President:
I am deeply disappointed in your unfortunate decision to not commute the sentence of Jonathan Pollard.
The lack of any justification for such a decision lends credence to the allegations increasingly heard of wrongdoing by the United States Government.
Why you would want to cover-up for the Reagan-Bush administrations is beyond me, but this is certainly no credit to your administration.
