Fbi & Jewell FBI Director Louis Freeh says the investigation continues into who leaked the name of security guard Richard Jewell as a suspect in the Atlanta Olympics bombing. Freeh said at a Senate hearing today that no progress has been made in finding the source of the leak to the news media. NPR's Paul Miller reports that Freeh said at least 500 people in law enforcement knew that Jewell was a suspect. Jewell was investigated by federal authorities for months, and was scrutinized by the news media after the leak, but ultimately was cleared of suspicion.
