Wen Ho Lee

Attorney General Janet Reno and FBI Director Louis Freeh laid out their case against Wen Ho Lee before two Senate committees today. Reno said Lee is a felon, not a victim of government persecution. Freeh described Lee's alleged duplicating and deleting of restricted nuclear weapons information, and the FBI director said Lee's actions showed criminal intent. NPR's Barbara Bradley reports on the hearing, and talks with a spokesman for a scientists' group about whether the testimony shows Lee was, or intended to be, a spy.
