Documents filed and sealed in Posada Carriles case

Click to see log showing the filing of secret documents and exhibits
The government and the defense filed documents last week in the Luis Posada Carriles case. All the documents are sealed and so it's impossible for most people to know what's going on in the case.
Both sides will try to use secrecy to their advantage.
- The government will likely push to keep documents sealed if they disclose details about Posada Carriles' past connections to the government, if they reveal government efforts to assist or cooperate in attacks on Cuba, or if they reveal investigative techniques and methods.
- The defense would want to seal any documents that incriminate Posada Carriles. I wonder if the defense has been able to force the government to make secret certain documents that while incriminating Posada Carriles also expose past U.S. government collaboration with the accused anti-Castro bomber.
Will we ever know details of what went on behind-the-scenes in the Posada Carriles case?
