James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA, told Israel National Radio's Alex Traiman that Jonathan Pollard should be freed.

Speaking at the Herzliyah Conference (19/01/07) Ex-CIA Director, James Woolsey was asked by Arutz7's Alex Trainman for his opinion on Jonathan Pollard. Woolsey responded that though he has favored a significant punishment for Pollard in the past, "now that he has served over 20 years in prison, my view is that 20 years is enough. I also think that the close relationship between the US and Israel is also of some consideration, and at this point I think he's served long enough."
