The U.S Goverment is attempting to keep evidence gatherd about the 9/11 Hijackings from the families of victims involved in fighting for compensation from the airlines. A district Judge ordered the Goverment to allow access to un classified documents gathered for the prosecution of Zaccaria Mousaouia, a request the U.S goverment plans to fight.
ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (CNN) -- Prosecutors asked a judge to rethink granting 9/11 families suing airlines access to evidence gathered for the criminal case against al Qaeda terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema's April 7 order requires prosecutors to provide copies of all unclassified aviation security documents to attorneys representing September 11 families in a civil lawsuit pending in New York.

Prosecutors called the order "unprecedented" and urged Brinkema to withdraw it. The motion was filed by Chuck Rosenberg, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

the material has been gathered over 5 years, and has been used to prosecute the so called '20th' hijacker - zacaria Mousaouia. The families of victims want to use the material in a court battle for compensation against the airlines, a request a district judge has agreed to. This is hotly contested by the prosecutors, as they feel it will impede the 9/11 investigation. Now which ever side of the fence you sit on, is it feasable that 5 years on that this investigation is still going on after 2 wars to combat the terrorists behind this event? Isn't it time the families and the people see just what the goverment have gathered? Could this release not support the war or lend credence to it? or is it because there isn't much to go on?

So. is Martial Law already decared in the U.S.? did I miss something?

The Government can´t deny a district Judge order to release evidence for purpose of investigation can they? The U.S. Government is "fighting" this decision.
