David Boren Undermines Investigation of University of Oklahoma Bomb

Rojan Gunaratna, author of Inside Al Qaeda, is a terrorism expert who testified before the 9/11 Commission. In his book he reports that there was an Al Qaeda cell in Oklahoma in 2001. After 9/11, Norman became famous as the residence of Zacarias Moussaoui for six months, when he was taking flight lessons there. It now appears that Al Qaeda still might be active in the community.
On the evening of Saturday, October 1, officials of the University of Oklahoma in Norman told the press that a person was found dead after an explosion near the stadium while a football game was in progress. KCCI news of Des Moines reported that Kerry Pettingill, Oklahoma homeland security directory, said the motive behind the explosion is unknown.
The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City newspaper, made this statement in its Sunday issue: "It was unclear late Saturday if the explosion was an act of terrorism, said Sgt. Gary Robinson of the university police department."
But OU President David Boren, the former U.S. Senator widely known as the mentor and patron of George Tenet, seems very interested in undermining the investigation. He is sending a strong signal to the police that he will not tolerate any conclusion that terrorism was involved. Contradicting both the OU police and the state’s homeland security director while acting like a monarch accountable to no one, Boren is quoted by the AP as saying that the death was "an individual suicide." He also told the press that no one inside the stadium was ever in any danger.
The Oklahoman also reports that a second bomb was found after the first explosion. It was detonated by a robot. Coincidence ? Did someone else leave the second bomb? Certainly that one wasn’t intended as an "individual suicide."
Additionally, the blast from the first bomb could be heard and felt at least four blocks from campus. Boren would have us believe that someone intent only on committing suicide without killing others would:
1. use a bomb; 2. use a bomb of such magnitude; 3. be in the vicinity of the stadium on a game day; 4. apparently leave a second bomb.
It appears that the bomber was on his way to the crowd with the device, but it accidentally detonated earlier. And if officers agree with Boren that there is no reason to fear terrorism, why was entry onto the South Oval of the campus being prohibited on Sunday morning while the bomb search was still under way?
The bomber has not been identified to the press. Unconfirmed reports circulating on the Internet allege that he was a resident of Parkview Apartments, which are a short distance from the Mosque.
While claiming that no one inside the stadium was ever in any danger, Boren himself admits to having ordered a search of the garage area near the stadium along with lower levels outside the stadium. This was reported by The Norman Transcript.
Among Boren’s many problems is the fact that his gargantuan stadium expansion undertaken in 2002 encumbered the athletic department for 30 years with an annual debt service of $5 million. He has already been raising tuition and robbing the OU general fund to pay off this debt. He would hate to see revenues from ticket sales decline because of bombing fears. He prefers keeping football fans uninformed about a realistic assessment of risk associated with being part of an OU stadium crowd. That explains the "individual suicide" nonsense.
