New details are emerging about an American who has been missing in Iran since 2007.
The Washington Post reports retired FBI agent Robert Levinson was working for the CIA investigating the Iranian government, not conducting private business as previously claimed.
Levinson vanished in what's been described as a rogue operation inside the CIA.
The agency allegedly paid Levinson's family $2.5 million to head off a revealing lawsuit. Three veteran CIA analysts were also forced out of the agency and seven others disciplined.
The CIA has also rewritten its rules restricting how analysts can work with outsiders.
There is no confirmation who captured Levinson or who may be holding him now.
Although U.S. authorities have investigated possible involvement of drug traffickers or terrorists, most officials say they believe Iran is either holding him or knows who has him.
