    Dimitri Khalezov documented almost all that needs to be done, on your TRUTHJIHAD programS; in his other interviews, and in his book, which is unavailable in the U.S.
    There is no need for any investigations. The 9/11 crime associates-in-fact have all openly spoken; publicly confessed; and neatly spoliated (destroyed) almost all the physical evidence. What occurred amounts to a prosecutor’s shortcut to confession of a crime.
    Pursuant to American laws, when an individual, entity, or group of people, is publicly accused of an offence it has only one year to defend itself of the charges accused of. If it fails to do so the charges are deemed PROOF-OF-FACT. (see: Defamation Laws). In the past 10 years many such people and entities have been publicly accused and none of them have filed any lawsuits against their accusers, or even objected the accusations publicly, in order to avoid repeated perjuries. Therefore, the crimes are deemed proved by any judicial standards of this country, and need no further investigations. Any lawyer; judge; or legal-scholar, knows this. However, the DOJ, and the judicial system, have acted as integrated parts of the cover-ups, and will continue to do so, by killing any private lawsuits, or pressures to launch new investigation, just as they have successfully accomplished in the aftermaths of Kennedy murders, or the Apollo Moon-Hoaxings.
    Federal Rules of Evidence (FRE) apply to the presumption of the charges against this, and every similar, INSIDE-JOB culprits, including the charges of the atomic vaporization of WTC's which had been documented long before Khalezov's documents, and never contested, or refuted, by any authorities. Thus, all such criminal charges are deemed proofs of fact, similar to the public prosecution of the former president for murder with the publication of Vincent Bugliosi's famous 2008 prosecution book, which was not contested, thus it became proof of fact, just short of conviction.
    The specific provisions of the FRE applicable here are mainly sections: 101-106; 201; 301;302;601-615; 701-706; 803-807; 901-903; 1001-1008; Reference:

    Each of these documents is a proof of fact:

    Rabbi confesses that israel conducted the 911 attacks

    Why The Military Knows Israel Did 9/11

    Proof that Israel is responsible for 911, 1/2
