Biden Blocked Pollard's Release by Obama

The NYT reported Saturday that in a recent meeting between Biden and 15 rabbis in Florida –meant to bolster the Jewish community's support of the Obama's 2012 presidential campaign –the vice president was asked about the Obama administration's reluctance to release Pollard, who was imprisoned in 1986 after he was convicted of spying for Israel.

"President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, 'Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time is up,'" Biden reportedly told the group. "If it were up to me, he would stay in jail for life."
