Pollard's crimes greater than previously known?
Israel wasn't the only country to which Jonathan Pollard gave US intelligence, according to the FBI.
According to new evidence released by the FBI on Monday, Jonathan Pollard not only passed classified information on to Israel, but also to Pakistan and Australia.
In a presentation given by FBI agent Ronald Olive, which was broadcast on Channel 10, it was revealed that Pollard was also involved illegally in arms sales to Taiwan, France, Kenya, Afghanistan, and Argentina.
In his report, Olive made no mention of what type of information Pollard passed to Australia and Pakistan, nor of how it was transferred.
Olive also said the FBI had initially believed Pollard was spying for the Russians, and that they'd had no idea at the time that Israel was involved or that Pollard was even Jewish.
It's worth noting that Olive has written a book
