Former Central Intelligence Agency head R. James Woolsey called upon US President Barack Obama on Monday to commute the sentence of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.

In an interview with Channel 2, Woolsey said Obama should not ask for diplomatic concessions from Israel in return for Pollard. He said America regularly catches spies, but they don't serve 25 years in prison and that after examining the entire case and others like it, he believes Pollard should have left prison five years ago when he first called for his release.
