Robert Levinson: The American Left Behind in Iranian Prisoner Release

(ABC News) Brian Ross and Lee Ferran - Robert Levinson, 67, who served for more than two decades with the FBI before retiring, disappeared off Iran's Kish Island in March 2007. Levinson family attorney David McGee told ABC News that Levinson had a long-term relationship with the CIA, spying on Iran's nuclear program and on Hizbullah. "The CIA sent Bob Levinson to Iran to do an investigation on its behalf," McGee said. U.S. officials told ABC News that Levinson being left out of the prisoner release raises fears that he may not still be alive. "Bob's former colleagues have not forgotten him. We continue to stand with the Levinson family," said FBI Agents Association President Renaldo Tariche. "We celebrate today's release of Americans, but the world should not forget Levinson's continued unjustified imprisonment and continue to work for his release."
