Abstract (Document Summary)

Weldon L. Kennedy, the veteran FBI official who is directing the Oklahoma City bombing investigation, was named Tuesday to the bureau's No. 2 position.

He succeeds Larry A. Potts, who was removed by FBI Director Louis J. Freeh because of a controversy over his role in overseeing a 1992 siege at Ruby Ridge, Ida., where a white separatist's wife was killed by an FBI sharpshooter.
