Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard could not have revealed the identities of American spies for Russia, because he did not have the necessary clearance to see such documents, American intelligence expert John Loftus revealed over the weekend in an interview with Ma’ariv.

Loftus, a former US government prosecutor and army intelligence officer, said Pollard was given a life sentence because he was wrongly blamed for betraying American agents. He said Aldrich Ames and Robert Hansen, who were later convicted of betraying the agents, had the clearance Pollard lacked.

“Pollard’s continued incarceration is due to horrible stupidity,” Loftus said.
