Supporters of Jonathan Pollard shut down the White House switchboard after flooding it with calls urging his release to attend his father's funeral. Israel also said Sunday that it would officially request that the Obama administration let Jonathan Pollard leave prison for a brief compassionate release to pay his respects at the funeral scheduled for Monday morning in Indiana. State prison officials will not confirm whether or not Pollard attended the funeral until after it has taken place.
