On Saturday, the day the U.S. announced that Iran had released five people,  including a Washington Post reporter ,  the FBI Agents Association  (FBIAA) called on the international community to redouble its efforts to gain the release of former FBI Agent Robert Levinson, who disappeared in Iran in 2007.

“FBIAA urges the U.S. and international community to press Iran for information on the disappearance of Bob Levinson,” said  FBIAA President Renaldo Tariche in a statement.  “We ask anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to come forward with any information that could bring Bob back home.”

Levinson is a retired FBI Agent who served 22 years with the FBI and six with the DEA.  Levinson traveled to Kish Island, Iran as a private investigator and vanished March 9, 2007. The FBI has been investigating the case.

“Bob’s former colleagues have not forgotten him.  We continue to stand with the Levinson family,” said Tariche.  “Bob, married for 38 years with seven children, has missed more than nine years of accomplishments and milestones in the lives of his children.   Each day brings renewed heartache to his family and friends.  We celebrate today’s release of Americans, but the world should not forget Levinson’s continued unjustified imprisonment and continue to work for his release.”

MEXICO CITY — Stripped to his undershirt and covered in filth, the world’s most notorious drug lord dragged himself out of the sewers and into the middle of traffic.

Disoriented from his long trudge underground, with gun-toting marines on his heels, he found himself standing across the street from a Walmart. Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the kingpin known across the globe as El Chapo, would have to improvise. His cavalry was not coming.

He and his top lieutenant commandeered a white Volkswagen from a passing motorist, but only a few blocks later, the car became engulfed in smoke, witnesses said. Desperate for another vehicle, the two men spotted a red Ford Focus at a traffic light, driven by a woman with her daughter and 5-year-old grandson.

“Get out of the car now,” said the lieutenant, his weapon trained on the woman as he lifted the door handle, witnesses said. She complied, prying the child from the back seat and leaving her belongings in the car. Politely, the lieutenant handed over her purse before speeding off.
