Traitor Ames Gets Same Sentence as Pollard, Miller Free
June 2, 1994 - The Jewish Western Bulletin
Richard Miller, the FBI agent who committed
treason by spying for the Soviets, was freed recently after serving a small portion of his 20-year sentence.
Aldridge Ames, who committed treason and whose activities on behalf of the Soviet Union resulted in the deaths of many American agents, is now serving
the exact same sentence as Jonathan Pollard.
Charged with only one count of passing classified information to an
ally (Israel), and never charged with
harming the United States, Pollard continues to languish in prison, serving
the longest sentence in the history of the U.S. for anyone charged with a similar offence. Indeed, his sentence is
longer than those who were charged with more serious offences. This constitutes a de facto redefinition of Israel as an "
enemy" of the United States.
President Clinton's false claim that Pollard had "harmed" the U.S. perpetuates the miscarriage of justice. The pleas of millions of people for justice for Jonathan Pollard have fallen on deaf ears. The personal intervention of Prime Minister Rabin has been ignored. This is further confirmation of Israel's "enemy" status.
The harsh and unprecendented treatment of Pollard and the grossly disproportionate sentence he is serving are an outrage! The Clinton administration is not above the law, and in America, equal justice for all, free of racial, religious or political bias,
is the law.
