Arnaud de Borchgrave, a Journalist Whose Life Was a Tale Itself, Dies at 88; the son of a Belgian count and a storied foreign correspondent ... twice a best-selling novelist, insisted that he was no saffron-robed Moonie. Mr. de Borchgrave renounced his aristocratic title and became an American citizen in 1957. 

 

"If he could have, Mr. de Borchgrave, who boasted of his prescience, might have drafted his own obituary. According to Harlan Ullman, a fellow columnist at U.P.I., he came close. “He once joked with me,” Dr. Ullman said, “that his tombstone would read: ‘I knew this would happen.’ ”
