Eugene Glenn, the FBI field commander at Ruby Ridge, today testified that he felt the internal investigation into the 1992 shootout was little more than "damage control." Glenn's coverup allegations target officials as high as former FBI Deputy Director Larry Potts. His testimony came as four more FBI officials - including Richard Rogers, chief of the FBI hostage rescue team - notified the Senate panel that they intend to invoke their Fifth Amendment right. "It certainly makes the FBI look very bad to the public," reports Elaine Shannon from the hearings. "That four top officials all are going to take the Fifth gives the impression of a stonewall, and that doesn't help the bureau at all. Morale is extremely low among the rank and file. And for the FBI, morale is everything."
