President Obama will sign a bill to strengthen security cooperation between the United States and Israel.
The White House expressed its regrets about President Obama's use of the term "Polish death camp."
President Obama has received a letter from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, requesting clemency for convicted spy-for-Israel Jonathan Pollard. "I think it is important to underscore that Mr. Pollard was convicted of some of the most serious crimes that anybody can be charged (with)," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters Wednesday “We have received the letter and will review it,” White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said. Neither spokesman said how long the review process would take and what steps were involved.
