Today, the IRmep Center for Policy and Law Enforcement released a internal briefing video produced by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency that it obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. The video, called “Jonathan Pollard: A Portrayal,” was produced to convince American government employees to “report suspicious activities” of their colleagues.
From the video’s YouTube page:
This public domain video was released under the Freedom of Information Act on June 25, 2012 to the IRmep Center for Policy and Law Enforcement. It encourages government employees to report suspicions of espionage. An actress portrays “Susan” who observes Jonathan Pollard’s suspicious activities and tall tales, but fears reporting might lead to investigators “climbing all over” the offices.
The video reveals how the investigation was in fact discreet and highly effective, and urges people debating whether to report to immediately contact their security officer.
Jonathan Pollard has been serving life in prison since 1987 after being caught selling classified documents to Israel. Lately there has an increased effort to persuade President Obama to pardon him.
