Biden’s Pollard remarks perplexing


To the Editor:

I am stunned that Vice President Biden made the remark “President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, ‘Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time.’ ” And he said it to an audience of rabbis and executives from Jewish organizations. This is truly baffling and troubling. What does the Biden statement say regarding President Obama and the Jewish vote?

As Pollard is scheduled for parole consideration in 2015, I am concerned that the Obama-Biden White House would use its influence to prevent him from being freed.
