House to vote on Levinson bill

Tomorrow at around noon, the House of Representatives will debate H.Con.Res. 36, the resolution encouraging the President to engage with Iranian officials to obtain information about the whereabouts of Robert Levinson.
The vote will likely take place later in the day.
Levinson, a former FBI official, disappeared on the island of Kish in 2007.  Led by Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Robert Wexler, both of Florida, members of Congress have frequently raised the issue of Levinson’s disappearance with administration officials working on the Iran portfolio.
While it is still a mystery exactly what happened to Mr. Levinson, it is hoped that the Obama administration’s outreach to Iran will elicit greater cooperation from Tehran in locating the disappeared father of seven.
