U.S. Ambassador Richard H. Jones Apologizes
for Remarks regarding Jonathan Pollard
U.S. Ambassador to Israel Richard H. Jones has issued the following statement to the press:
I apologize for the remarks I made this morning regarding the case of Mr. Jonathan Pollard, which were misinformed and misleading. They did not reflect my personal views nor those of the Bush Administration. I certainly do not personally believe that Mr. Pollard should have received capital punishment and I was appalled to learn that I had given that impression. I regret any distress that I may have caused Mr. Pollards family and loved ones.
