The Jonathan Jay Pollard Espionage Case: A Damage Assessment – 30 October 1987

The Jonathan Jay Pollard Espionage Case: A Damage Assessment – 30 October 1987

Background

According to this document:

“This study, undertaken by the Foreign Denial and Deception Analysis Committee (DDAC) at the direction of the Director of Central Intelligence, is one of two assessments of damage undertaken as a result of Jonathan Pollard’s espionage on behalf of Israel during 1984-1985, which are being issued almost simultaneously.”

Back in 2007, the CIA released the below document, heavily redacted.

Since nearly a decade had passed, in June of 2017, I requested a Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) of the record, believing that since so much time had passed, and there had been significant changes in politics and the world, I felt additional information could potentially be released to the public.

Sadly, on 1 August 2017, the CIA decided to simply send a copy of the previously released record reviewed in 2007.  What is frustrating, is that my letter clearly stated I was not seeking a copy of this previously released record, but rather, was requesting another review in 2017.

I have archived the document below for reference, however, I have submitted an appeal, as I consider this not responsive to my actual request, which asked for the following (in part):

This is a request for a mandatory declassification review (MDR), under the terms of Executive Order 12958, as amended, of the following document(s):

THE JONATHAN JAY POLLARD ESPIONAGE CASE: A DAMAGE ASSESSMENT – 30 October 1987.

I believe the record has been partially released before, but it has been many years since it has been reviewed. I’d like to get it reviewed again for possible further release.

Until that appeal is processed, you can view the record below.

 The Jonathan Jay Pollard Espionage Case: A Damage Assessment – 30 October 1987, 2017 release [166 Pages, 14.6MB] – This was a review done in 2017 and released to me in May of 2018. I requested an MDR and they re-sent me a 2012 version (see below this one) which I have archived here for reference. My appeal was granted, and they released this “new” version. However, although I did not go character by character in a line review, it appears to be the same document with a different MORI ID number. Something seems fishy — but alas — both are archived here.
