Former civilian Navy intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard is now serving a life sentence for selling highly classified data to Israel in the mid-1980s.

Navy officials and members of the intelligence community have objected strongly to such a move. A panel talks about the Pollard case: what Pollard actually did, and why the case has come under review.
