Robert Levinson, a 28-year veteran of the Drug Enforcement Administration and the FBI, vanished at a resort off the coast of Iran in March 2007. However, a sprawling AP report reveals that Levinson, now listed by the FBI as one of the longest held Americans in history, was working for the CIA when he went missing. Levinsons disappearance was reportedly brought about by a team of CIA analysts who, without the authority to authorize spy work, hired him to gather intelligence on the Iranian government. The AP agreed three times to delay publishing the story because the government insisted it was following promising leads on his location.
