Findings from an Associated Press investigation of CIA contractor Robert Levinson's March 2007 disappearance in Iran.
— Levinson was on an unauthorized spy operation for the CIA when he disappeared.
— After Levinson's disappearance, the CIA told lawmakers he had previously done contract work for the agency, but he had no current relationship with the agency and there was no connection to Iran.
— In October 2007, Levinson's lawyer discovered emails in which Levinson tells a friend at the CIA he was working to develop a source with access to the Iranian regime. The emails were turned over to the Senate Intelligence Committee, which touched off an internal CIA investigation.
— Three veteran analysts were forced out of the CIA and seven others were disciplined as a result of a breach of agency rules.
— The CIA paid Levinson's family $2.5 million to pre-empt a lawsuit.
