But first tonight.
The family retired FBI agent Robert Levenson release an extraordinary photos of him as a hostage in 2007.
Levinson vanished into thin -- on the Iran an island of quiche and then two years ago a hostage video anonymously sent to Levenson spam link.
Raising the possibility that Levenson has been held by terrorists.
But now US intelligence officials say the -- government may be behind the video and the just released photos.
-- is -- Christine is calling for added pressure on Iran and she joins us good evening.
Thank you have a -- And -- getting here every time that -- we have the on air I think someday.
You and I will be talking in your house we sitting right next to and these photos did -- that -- now released tonight give me you know a lot of hope that your husband is still alive -- take that you believe he's still alive.
I believe he is still alive I believe that he is spending every waking hour making sure.
But he is well enough to come home to us.
Now when you look at these pictures -- any idea when they may have been taken -- -- they dated and anyway.
I that they have not been able to find a date on these I do think that they were taken earlier and then another video.
Only because I've been told.
But doctors have looked at the video and said that he could not possibly have grown.
Hair like he has in this.
Picture the -- in the short amount of time between the pictures and the video.
Now we don't show the Hostin video here we're just using these still pictures but I'm curious when you found -- when you look at the picture -- any doubt whatsoever that that's your husband.
No no not at all that is my husband.
-- it was sick is was suggestion by -- state Clinton at least a year ago maybe almost two years ago that he was being held someplace in south -- -- and is suggesting might be in Pakistan being held by terrorists.
Do you know why she thought that.
That email came from Pakistan.
And that is why I believe com we started looking at the possibility.
But I don't believe that he is there I believe he is still in -- When you say email you -- the email containing these photos is that right.
Yeah I know that an effort was made to try to find the source of the email do you get any information at all as to who might haves and the -- that sent them to you.
-- that email address was used one time and one time only.
-- that was it an emailed to you directly or somebody else.
It was directly to me.
So I mean I guess that he -- They -- -- I assume that the email was obtained from your husband your email address session that's how they get that they got it was that your assumption.
I assume so because he had that -- his person when he disappeared.
Or was now or was taken.
So now there's been a shift now the united state of the State Department believes and out of -- do you believe this is well that he is not being held by terrorists but by the Ronnie and government or someone in Iraq.
I do believe that they -- running our running government has my husband.
If when you go back in history the last couple years the United States has been very aggressive to try to help get Americans home best example probably of the three hikers three young college since -- -- constant.
-- -- -- -- Are -- trying to help you what do they do they feel.
Well the F.
But the people working the case on a daily basis are FBI agents.
And they have tried very hard to find out information about five.
And get him return to our families safely.
Unfortunately that hasn't happened and they haven't been able to get the kind of information we would hope they would be able to obtain.
It takes a long time for each diplomatic request to go through all the channels.
And I know over the the course of all these years that.
Government and the state departments have tried to do that but -- have been unsuccessful.
I feel that -- needs to be more attention to the case and that's why I am putting these pictures out and trying to get everyone.
To remote it took to be reminded that Bob is still missing.
Have a question -- -- -- -- some some communications many not directly between the US and Iran but through some you know some other the third nation.
How has his Enron from ever made an admission that they know where he is that there -- -- for an effect Arabs want him for any particular reason.
Or they denied flatly that they have him.
Only time we ever received information about Bob -- in April of 2007.
When -- states' sanctions.
The station press TV.
A page that said that Bob was in -- -- custody and that would be released in a few days.
What can we do for you and your family.
I'm just hoping that.
You will make sure that everyone is aware that he is not home that all of the that Americans.
A rainy and Americans and Americans -- have been held in Iran have been returned home and Bob has not.
This is very frustrating our oldest starter is getting married in -- month and we don't have any reason why Bob is being held.
And we have no information about how to get him home and we know that it -- can do that.
Have you spoken -- chance to speak on New -- directly to secretary of state Clinton or President Obama by your husband.
I have spoken to each of them.
And they've said what.
That they will do everything they can to help us get -- home.
And what are -- doing.
I believe that they're working through diplomatic channels.
As I said.
The ones I know are working on a daily basis -- the FBI agents and may have been.
Extremely diligent in uncovering anything they can find about -- Well I know that they've been very patient your family's been very patient and -- know that you want the government to do anything can I just hope that of the United States and sort of step up the pressure.
Would -- like to leave Americans overseas like that anyway Christine thank you always nice to see you and you know c'mon back thank you.
