Free Bobby: the petition


I've set up an online petition to President Ahmadinejad asking for the release of Bob Levinson:

We the undersigned call upon you to acknowledge the Islamic Republic of Iran's unjust and illegal detention of U.S. citizen Robert A. Levinson, who disappeared from his hotel room on the island of Kish on or about March 8, 2007, and has not been heard from since.

Numerous reports in the Iranian and Western media attest to the fact of Mr. Levinson's detention, without charge, by Iranian authorities. Yet the government of the Islamic Republic has refused to acknowledge his detention or even the fact of his presence in the country.

We ask that Iran inform the U.S. State Department immediately of Mr. Levinson's whereabouts and the state of his well-being and make prompt arrangements for his return to his family in the United States.

I tried to find one elsewhere on the Web, but since I couldn't, I decided to roll my own.

You can sign it here.

I strongly encourage you to do so—and to ask all your friends to do likewise.

Who knows? Maybe  President Ahmadinejad will respond to the pleas of his fellow bloggers. Stranger things have happened.
