Another UPI Story About the CIA Disappears

Recently I was studying some television news video which was broadcast in May 2004, after the beheading of Nick Berg. Greta Van Susterin of Fox News asked a good question when she wondered why Berg, who had attended Ivy League schools, would decide to enroll at the less distinguished University of Oklahoma. She was interviewing William Brunch, who did not have much of an answer. He described Berg as an "idealistic" and "eccentric" young man who "wanted to travel." He concluded, "We’re not exactly sure how he found the University of Oklahoma, but that fits in with the pattern of his life."

Last year I came to suspect that Berg had been a CIA operative in the OU area had been supervised by David Boren and his protege George Tenet. Boren is a former U.S. Senator with close ties to the CIA. Interestingly, in the summer of 2001, Boren arranged for the appointment of another top spook to a "visiting professor" post at OU. This was David Edger, who had earlier been responsible for CIA surveillance over the Al Qaeda cell in Hamburg. The answer to Van Susterin’s question might be that Boren brought Berg to OU.

Recently UPI posted a story with this headline: Oxford dons blast CIA student spies. This was listed by a Google news search:

When I clicked on the link, I was greeted with the news that UPI had yanked the story.

Another interesting coincidence is that former Rhodes Scholar Boren has ties to Oxford too.

UPI seems to be making a habit out of posting and then quickly removing articles about the CIA. Go here for documentation about other disappearing stories:
