KOCO-TV Suppresses an Explosive 9/11 News Report

I have not been keeping this a secret all this time. I started putting this information online at my own website in December 2002.
In the fall of 2001, a librarian at the University of Oklahoma in Norman (OU) told me that she was present when the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted an interview about the fact that an airline ticket for a 9/11 hijacker was purchased from a computer terminal at that school’s library. She said it was for United Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania.
This is very important. The purchaser was not a hijacker. He was a white American male and a temporary library employee. Apparently the FBI already knew the IP address of the terminal, and with that evidence librarians were able to locate it in the facility. The librarian speculated that he was a neo-Nazi who shared Al-Qaeda’s hatred for Israel.
Months passed, and no one was ever arrested for this. I began to suspect that the purchaser was a covert CIA operative infiltrating Al Qaeda, and that immunity from arrest was quietly arranged for him later. In response to Freedom of Information Act requests, the FBI has refused to identify him and will not answer the question about whether he was arrested. They have stated that the requested material "is located in an investigative file which pertains to a pending investigation." It occurs to me now that, if my suspicion is correct, they are relying on the 1982 Intelligence Identities Protection Act as justification for not answering my question.
If he were indeed a CIA operative and still alive, then Americans do not need to know his name (but I actually suspect that he is dead.) We do deserve to know whether he was a covert operative. If I am correct, then he clearly crossed a terrible boundary from legitimate surveillance to active participation in a horrendous crime. The U.S. Congress and the public deserve the opportunity to scrutinize this kind of "surveillance." It obviously was not effective in obstructing the 9/11 attack. On the contrary, it facilitated it.
A declassified CIA document confirms that the agency not only infiltrates terror cells, it also manipulates them (CIA-RDP85-00671R000200250001-4). I suspect that this 9/11 ticket purchase gives an example of their style of "manipulation." The president of OU is former U.S. Senator David Boren, patron and mentor of ex-CIA director George Tenet. I have earlier reported some details about this relationship to Bella Ciao : http://bellaciao.org/en/article.php...
KOCO-TV Broadcasts It But Later Conceals It
Four different people have told me of seeing an Oklahoma City KOCO-TV news broadcast about the ticket-purchasing incident at OU. In October 2003, I called KOCO and tried to buy a videocassette of this broadcast. A woman at the news desk named Melissa confirmed that they had reported this, and then transferred me to the voice mail of Terri Watkins, the reporter who made the broadcast. I left a message there asking to purchase the videocassette.
To my surprise and indignation, when I checked my answering machine later, there was a message from Watkins denying that the station had reported it.
Obviously, the station was pressured into suppressing the report. The pressure probably came from the CIA, FBI, or both. Recordings of these contradictory communications from the two women can be heard here:
Any resident of central Oklahoma who is willing to confirm having seen this suppressed news broadcast is encouraged to contact me.
