TITLE-Territory of Lies by Wolf Blitzer. 1989,336 pp. [hardcover only but cost is at or below $5 on Amazon]
SYNOPSIS- A penetrating expose of the case of Pollard, an American Jew who worked for U.S. Naval Intelligence and spied for Israel. Blitzer, the Washington correspondent for The Jerusalem Post , interviewed Pollard (now in federal prison) and also made use of many contacts in the Israeli government. The tale Blitzer tells is of a bright but unstable man, a dedicated Zionist but questionably loyal American, who offered his services to the Israelis, who in turn mounted a poorly organized intelligence operation in the United States. Blitzer raises many issues about the case that will be debated for years–the harsh sentence given to both Pollard and his wife, the question of dual loyalties, and the possibility of a third party involvement. A thoroughly provocative tale that needed to be told and was done so with a great deal of passion.
