Hillary Throws the Key Away on Pollard

At yesterday's press conference in Tel Aviv:-

MS. NULAND: Next question (inaudible) Channel 2, please.

QUESTION: Madam Secretary...On the matter of Jonathan Pollard, we’ve been here for a long time. Don’t you think it’s a matter of justice and even a humanitarian issue that after almost 27 years in jail he should be released?

SECRETARY CLINTON: ...with respect to Mr. Pollard, he was, as you know, convicted of spying in 1987. He was sentenced to life in prison. He is serving that sentence, and I do not have any expectation that that is going to change.

Whose expectations?
