Watch List: Pollard and Kadish

Jonathan Pollard, on our Pardon Watch List, says he does not know Ben-Ami Kadish, who was recently arrested for spying for Israel between 1979 and 1985. Pollard's wife says her husband had only heard of Mr. Kadish, a former Army engineer, when the arrest was publicized. This report also says Pollard's wife "further played down speculation that the new affair could hurt Israel's efforts to win clemency for Pollard, who is scheduled to go free from prison in 2015." Meanhile the L.A. Times blog observes:

Critics of Israel and numerous intelligence professionals have long maintained that Pollard was the tip of the iceberg. For many out there, the infamous tale of the Israeli art student spy ring remains one of the criminally under-explored stories of recent years.
