Warren Weinstein, a former USAID worker who has lived in Pakistan for five to seven years, was taken from his home in Lahore by eight gunman on August 13, 2011. In December, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri said he was holding Weinstein because he has been involved with U.S. aid to Pakistan since the 1970s. The 70 year old Weinstein is currently working for J.E. Austin & Associates as Chief of Party for Pakistan Initiatives for Strategic Development and Competitiveness.
63 years old Robert Levinson was kidnapped in Iran in 2007. The former FBI agent served for 33 years and was acting as a private investigator when he was kidnapped on Kish island. His family received a video last year and released it in December of 2011. In the video, Levinson said that he was not in good health and is running out of diabetes medicine. The US government has no evidence showing who is holding Levinson and the Iranian government has denied any involvement. Clues suggest he may be in Pakistan or Afghanistan in the hands of an independent terrorist organization. If you have any knowledge about Bob Levinson's location, please visit www.helpboblevinson.com.
