Bob Levinson was the holy grail of “gets” in the hostage rescue/recovery business. I can’t tell you how many proposals to “get Bob” there were and how deeply frustrated and saddened his family and loved ones were and now are. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/25/robert-levinson-fbi-iran-us …
I am heartbroken.
Bob Levinson, a former DEA and FBI Agent, who was held hostage by the Iranian government for over 13 years has died.
Bob’s family members are remarkable, wonderful people who have dedicated the past decade to trying to get their husband/father released. https://t.co/QkUa6IDDCA

The paper of record can’t report that this American patriot died in Iranian custody without adding “on an unauthorized C.I.A. mission” to headline.

My and Heidi’s thoughts and prayers are w the family of Bob Levinson and all those who loved him. The Iranian regime thugs involved in his kidnapping, imprisonment, and death must be held accountable. I’ll continue to work w the admin to ensure that they answer for their crimes.
