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.
