During college, Cooper spent two summers as an intern at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Although he technically has no formal journalistic education, he opted to pursue a career in journalism rather than stay with the agency after school, having been a self-proclaimed “news junkie” since he was “in utero.”
After his first correspondence work in the early 1990s, he took a break from reporting and lived in Vietnam for a year, during which time he studied the Vietnamese language at the University of Hanoi. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anderson_Cooper
The following brief piece is from the usahitman.com website Posted Jan.2013
I found out something very interesting: CNN’s Anderson Cooper spent two summers interning for a career with the Central Intelligence Agency, according to a report at a gossip website that no longer exists.
“Following his sophomore and junior years at Yale—a well-known recruiting ground for the CIA—Cooper spent his summers interning at the agency’s monolithic headquarters in Langley, Virginia, in a program for students interested in intelligence work,” reports Radar Online.
Of course, if the evil Cooper were one of many CIA assets in the media, he would hardly admit it. He has kept the experience a secret, sources say, out of concern that, if widely known, it might compromise his ability to travel in foreign countries and even possibly put him at greater risk from terrorists.
from Chris VanLandingham: “After Anderson ‘left’ the CIA he went to Burma and got involved with dissident students fighting the government there while claiming to be a reporter though having no affiliation with any news outlet.
After that he went to Vietnam, Somalia, Bosnia, and Rwanda. Nope can’t be CIA. He would have told us.” Source: http://usahitman.com/aciacia/
