Levinson family wants meeting with FBI chief James Comey

By: CNN National Correspondent Susan Candiotti

The family of long-missing former FBI agent Robert Levinson has renewed its request for a meeting with the bureau's new director following reports Levinson had been working for the CIA when he vanished, the family's lawyer said Monday.

Levinson disappeared on a trip to Iran in 2007, and U.S. officials say they have no idea where he is now. The Associated Press and The Washington Post reported last week that he had been working as a contractor for the CIA, but the White House said Levinson "was not a U.S. government employee" when he disappeared.

    If he is CIA you cannot legally name him as CIA, if AP want Mr Levinson regardless checking with legal as they did before they ran the story. The FBI will come around and arrest all involved in the naming of a CIA agent. Fact check that mate.

    A rogue op that was when neon Leon ran up to the hill about the not operational assassination program on al-Qaida operatives. Bob Levinson did not work for the CIA and was on private business regardless of what the aerobic instructor was up to. That is how Iran should see it, because we say so and it is the truth. Carrie the character was a real person the President would send someone like me to liquidate her. That is the reality. If any civilian has information that would aid the national security of the US, that is why the CIA has a contact point. It does not mean what AP are saying and they know me too over the drama between Gates and the video footage of the dying soldier is truth. Nor does any monies paid due to an inappropriate relationship. The CIA, FBI, State and two Admins have tried to bring Mr Levinson home, as would be the case for any US citizen, especially due it being Iran our history and it is still raw. And they know it and like to play on the alleged CIA angle. As I have said before I believe it is a rogue faction of the MOIS and IRGC that are holding him without the knowledge of the Ayatollah or the President and the proof of life ruse was as much as pulling the US off the sent as covering their own behinds. You can see the infighting over the nuclear deal, the factional fighting over Ahmadi. This is no different regardless of the Ayatollah's rulings.

    I hope they take a good lawyer with them. The govt thinks they can wave his resume around to avoid responsibility for bringing him home, if he's still alive. Ask Jarrett...she'll know.

    Hmm, this family merely wants a meeting and I'd say that's the least that could be done for them, so do it.

    Kudos to the State Department, CIA, FBI, media, etc. for staying on top of this and working towards releasing American brother Levinson from the dark bonds of captivity in the land of the evil Ayatollah.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.
