The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA), representing more than 13,000 active and former FBI Special Agents, marked the 10th anniversary of former FBI Agent Robert Levinson’s disappearance and called on the Trump Administration and the international community to increase efforts to gain his release.

"It’s time to bring Bob home to his family,” said FBIAA President Tom O’Connor. “FBIAA urges the Trump Administration and the international community to press Iran for information on his disappearance. We are encouraged by the recent statement by a White House National Security spokesperson that Bob’s case is a priority and that the U.S. will never cease in its efforts to bring Bob home. We ask anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to come forward to help reunite Bob with his loved ones.”
“Our message to Bob and his family is that his former colleagues have not forgotten him,” said O’Connor. We continue to stand with the Levinson family. Bob has missed a decade of accomplishments and milestones in the lives of his children and his wife, Christine. We pledge to the Levinson family that we will not let the world forget Bob’s unjustified imprisonment and we will continue to work for his release.”
The Trump administration remained “unwavering” in its commitment to finding Levinson and getting him home, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer. “We want him back, and we will spare no effort to achieve that goal,” Spicer said today.
President Trump is a frequent critic of Iran, as noted in published reports. He has issued a "guarantee" that U.S. citizens held by Iran would be released.
