In his interview with Raddatz, Kerry rejected the Levinson family’s claim that Robert Levinson was working for a rogue CIA operation when he disappeared.
“There hasn’t been progress in the sense that we don’t have him back. But to suggest that we have abandoned him or anybody has abandoned him is simply incorrect and not helpful,” Kerry said.
“The fact is, that I have personally raised the issue not only at the highest level that I have been involved with, but also through other intermediaries. So we don’t have any meeting with anybody who has something to do with Iran or an approach to Iran where we don’t talk to them about how we might be able to find not just Levinson, but we have two other Americans that we’re deeply concerned about,” he said.
