Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger joined the long list of current and former senior American and Israeli officials calling for the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard on Monday when a letter he wrote US President Barack Obama was released to the press.

Kissinger, who served under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, told Obama that he had given much thought to the question of clemency for Pollard and decided to back the effort after speaking to fellow former secretary of state George Schultz.
