Jonathan Pollard’s new lawyers are claiming that his first attorney 15 years ago was incompetent, and that he should be granted a new federal hearing regarding his life sentence for spying against America on behalf of Israel.
The new attorneys filed a 69-page motion in federal court in Washington, D.C., last week charging Pollard was deprived of his Sixth Amendment right to “effective counsel” and his Fifth Amendment right of due process because of a series of failures by high-powered Washington defense attorney Richard Hibey.
In a previous post I wrote about the hundreds of photos in my basement and pondered what will one day become of them.
Now, the same question applies to some 30 years worth of photo prints, most of them black and white, that have accumulated in The Jewish Week’s office. The office manager wants to be rid of them to make more room. To me, it’s akin to forgetting history.
