Speaking on Meet The Press this morning, FBI director Louis Freeh said evidence points to catastrophic mechanical failure, and NOT a bomb or missile.

The final report will be out by the end of summer.
All 230 people on board the plane died when it blew up in the air last July.
Freeh dismissed speculation that a wayward American missile brought the plane down, and started a massive government coverup.
