THE WHITE HOUSE HAS BEEN LYING ABOUT THAT EX-FBI AGENT MISSING IN IRAN FOR SEVEN YEARS, BOMBSHELL AP REPORT SAYS

 

 

 

 

“ Robert Levinson went missing during a business trip to Kish Island, Iran,” that’s what the White House said as recently as last month about Robert Levinson, the retired FBI agent who went missing in Iran seven years ago.

  In March 2007, Levinson flew to Kish Island, an Iranian resort. Days later after a meeting with an admitted killer, he vanished. For years the U.S. has publicly described him as a private citizen who was traveling on private business. However, an Associated Press investigation reveals that Levinson was working for the CIA. In a breach of the most basic CIA rules, a team of analysts with no authority to run spy operations, paid Levinson to gather information. But even after the White House, FBI and State Department officials learned of Levinson’s CIA ties, the official story remained unchanged. (AP Photo/Levinson Family)

  That was a lie, according to a new bombshell Associated Press report.

  According to the AP investigation, Levinson was actually on a rogue mission sanctioned by CIA operatives that did not have the power to do so. And the agency paid Levinson’s family millions ($2.5 million, to be exact) to thwart a lawsuit about it. The scandal also led to three veteran analysts being forced out of the agency and seven others being disciplined.

The AP story explains:

In an extraordinary breach of the most basic CIA rules, a team of analysts – with no authority to run spy operations – paid Levinson to gather intelligence from some of the world’s darkest corners. He vanished while investigating the Iranian regime for the U.S. government.”
