Stuff you may have missed: December 12, 2013

In a stunning reveal, the Associated Press reported that long-detained American Robert Levinson, who has been held in Iran for the past seven years, is actually a CIA agent on a unapproved mission. Here’s why the AP finally published the story.

In Bangladesh, Abdul Qader Mulla, a leader involved in the 1971 war for independence, was executed for crimes against humanity. He was initially sentenced to life in prison, but then a popular protest broke out.

Democrats in the Senate are currently punishing Republicans for that whole not-approving-judicial-nominees thing by holding votes during all hours of the day.

The “affluenza” defense apparently worked well enough for a Texas teen that he skipped jail time for a fatal DUI crash. But is “affluenza” actually a thing?

Don’t feel bad, producers of “The Butler.” The Golden Globes gets it wrong—often.

Since 2007, former FBI agent Bob Levinson has remained missing, but despite a video informing people of the danger he faces making the rounds in late 2011, little has been done to help him. So his family has taken another step, releasing photos of Levinson supposedly taken in Guantanamo, according to the signs Levinson’s holding — but more likely taken in an Iranian prison. His family received the photos 18 months ago, but held off on their release, only putting them out now because his plight wasn’t receiving enough attention.

Above is the video of the former agent talking, along with his family talking before the clip. Bob Levinson went missing in Iran in March 2007, with little known about his situation — until today. In this clip, his son and mother show up beforehand. ”Please tell us your demands so we can work together to bring my father home safely,” his son David says in the clip above. In the clip, the elder Levinson says that while he’s been treated well, he’s in poor health and low on diabetes medication. However, details on the group that has him are sparse and limited. The U.S. government believes he’s being held in southwestern Asia, and have asked the Iranian government for help in figuring out where he’s being held. source
