The family of former Marine Jon Hammar had tremendous success getting their son released from a Mexican prison when they eventually went public with their story. Now, in a heartbreakingly sad story, the wife of missing former FBI Agent Robert Levinson is doing the same as her oldest daughter is getting married next month.
According to Fox News, Levinson, then a private investigator, disappeared in Iran in 2007 while investigating cigarette smuggling on the island of Kish. For the first time, Christine Levinson is releasing pictures she received of her husband two years ago showing him being held hostage.
A very gracious Mrs. Levinson told “On the Record’s” Greta Van Susteren the FBI has been working tirelessly to find her husband to no avail. She said that Sec. of State Hilary Clinton and President Obama have also been unable to get anything done through diplomatic channels. So, she has released the pictures to the American public and asked for help in putting pressure on Iran for information.
It is strongly believed the Iranian government is behind Levinson’s abduction, though the Iranians have repeatedly denied any knowledge of his disappearance, reported Fox News.
In the six years Levinson has been missing, Fox News said:
The consensus now among some U.S. officials involved in the case is that despite years of denials, Iran’s intelligence service was almost certainly behind the 54-second video and five photographs of Levinson that were emailed anonymously to his family. The tradecraft used to send those items was too good, indicating professional spies were behind them, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to talk publicly. While everything dealing with Iran is murky, their conclusion is based on the U.S. government’s best intelligence analysis.
