Jeff Sessions has ended an alliance between the Justice Department and independent scientists to raise standards of forensic science

The review of forensic science has been enormously valuable for scientific and social reasons. 

To be independent, it is important that impartiality and objectivity are in play for those tasked with the review process, and like forensic science itself, an open assessment is conducted with evidence (infomation) from all parties considered.  

Forensic science reviews are as much about the legal system as the science, as this is where evidence will play out.  

I'm sure both sides of the argument around the closure of this review will be discussed further.
