DEAR MR. VICE PRESIDENT JOSEPH R. BIDEN:

WE WELCOME YOU TO OUR COMMUNITY.

WE HOPE, SOON, TO BE ABLE

TO ALSO WELCOME JONATHAN POLLARD

AFTER MORE THAN 26 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON

Now is the time
to tree Jonathan Pollard

Distinguished Americans are urging President Obama to Free Jonathan Pollard

"Dear Mr. President,
Justice would be served by
commuting Jonathan Pollard's
sentence."

"Dear Mr. President,
Jonathan Pollard has paid a huge
price and should be released from
prison."

Henry A. Kissinger

George R Shultz

"Dear Mr. President,
It is unjust for [Pollard] to serve
any more time in prison...
Commuting his sentence to time
served is the right thing to do."

"Dear Mr. President,
Failure at this time to commute
his sentence would be a
miscarriage of justice."

Senator Dennis DeConcini

Former White House Counsel

Former US Secretary of State

Former Chair of Senate Intelligence
Committee

Senator Alan K. Simpson

R. James Woolsey

Former CIA Director

Former US Secretary of State

Bernard W. Nussbaum

"Dear Mr. President,
It is patently clear that Mr. Pollard's sentence is
severely disproportionate and a gross miscarriage
of justice... Commuting his sentence to time served
[is] a matter of basic compassion and American
justice."

Co-chair of the President's Economic Commission

"Now is the time
to free Jonathan Pollard"

"Dear Mr. President,
[Pollard's] life sentence can only
be considered utterly
disproportionate to the crime."

Michael B. Muckasey

Former US Attorney General

"Dear Mr. President,
Mr. Pollard was not charged with harming America and has
repeatedly expressed remorse for his actions. Furthermore,
the average sentence for his offense is 2-4 years... Justice
would best be served by commuting Pollard's sentence to
the time he has already spent in prison. "

Lawrence J. Korb

Former US Assistant Secretary of Defense
