Lockerbie: The New York Times

On the very day (March 12 1991) Lord Fraser warned that he may make public the truth regarding the Lockerbie investigation, the New York Times published an amazing story:

 Jordan Link Reported for Spies Slain in Syria

“Two undercover agents who were killed by Syrian terrorists last fall, apparently after the United States compromised their identities during a diplomatic exchange with Syria…

The two agents were unmasked and killed by an unidentified terrorist group after the United States passed information about Syrian terrorism in a series of diplomatic exchanges to that nation’s President, Hafez al-Assad, as well as to its Foreign Minister, Farouk al-Sharaa, and to lower-ranking Syrian diplomats.”

There is just one glitch. Such event never actually occurred. Now, can you guess who planted this story? And what do you think was the purpose of such a disinformation job?
