ALEXANDRIA, Va. - In a setback for the government, a federal judge ordered yesterday that four men whom prosecutors had linked to a violent terrorist group be released until trial - even as another judge ruled that a fifth suspect must remain in custody. Taken as a whole, the actions suggested a weaker case than the one the Justice Department portrayed last week, when it unsealed an indictment that it called a step forward in the war against terrorism. At one point yesterday, prosecutors even agreed that one defendant posed no threat to the community and should be released without bail until trial.
