In 2007, that's almost 10 years back an ex-secret agent of the CIA volunteered to go to the Iranian island of Kish to recruit a person for US intelligence. His cover was blown and the Iranians knew why he was on the island. He left the hotel to proceed to the airport, but he never reached the destination. Subsequently, Iranian TV which is government owned announced that the man named Bob Levinson was in custody of the Iranian security. This was the last the US and his family heard about him. Later the Iranian leadership flatly denied any knowledge of the whereabouts

of the spy.

A video did emerge in 2010, which showed that Levinson was alive but after that, it has been one big blank. The Iranians disclaim any knowledge about him. The wife of the ex-CIA agent is convinced her husband is

alive and she is waiting for him. On Thursday, the US Department officials held a meeting with the family of Levinson to see what can be done to get the CIA man back. However, privately many officials on the promise of anonymity said that probably Levinson is dead. If it's true then it's really sad.

Donald Trump has promised to put pressure on Iran and get it to cooperate, but the Iran state is the sworn enemy of the USA and one wonders what they will do to help out. In the meantime, the family of the CIA agent is planning to sue the Iran government for at least 400 million dollars for the disappearance of Levinson.
