Robert "Bob" Booker Baer had previously worked in Lebanon, and was assigned the monitoring of martyr Imad Mughniyah. Baer arrived to Lebanon in 1984.

He was accused by Hizbollah in a televised speech of Hassan Nasrallah dated July 2nd 2011 that in 1985 he allegedly saw through an explosion targeting in Bir al-Abed the late Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah.

He also had other missions in the Middle East.

In an interview on Abu Dhabi TV, Robert Baer explained how he had the mission to trace Imad. The latter was always alert and warned, camouflaging his whereabouts.
