A federal judge in Manhattan has issued a default judgment against the Islamic Republic of Iran, its top officials and various political and military subdivisions in finding that the defendants provided direct and material support to al-Qaida in connection with the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. After a lengthy examination of allegations, 276 findings of fact and 35 separate conclusions of law, Southern District Judge George B.
