[Ed. – Some day the Iranian regime will get its comeuppance — if not in this world, then the next.]
Robert Levinson, a retired FBI agent and private investigator who disappeared from an Iranian island in 2007, is believed to have died in Iranian custody, his family revealed in a statement Wednesday.
The statement said U.S. officials agreed with the family’s conclusion, adding: “We don’t know when or how he died, only that it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
President Trump said he had not been told that Levinson is dead but said “he wasn’t well for years in Iran.
“He’s been sick for a long time, and he had some rough problems prior to his detainment or capture,” Trump said, adding that Levinson “was a great gentleman.”
Levinson was the longest-held hostage in U.S. history, and his family had fought for over a decade for his safe return, blaming the Iranian regime for his capture and imprisonment.
