Vincent Bugliosi joins Janice Markham on Press for Democracy to discuss his latest book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder. A searing indictment of the President and his administration, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder outlines a legally credible pathway to holding President Bush accountable for his actions, thereby creating a framework for future occupants of the oval office.
Vincent Bugliosi is a renowned prosecutor and author. His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history. His book, Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, has been heralded as “epic” and “a book for the ages” and is being made into a miniseries by HBO produced by Tom Hanks.
In The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, Bugliosi presents a tight, meticulously researched legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial in an American courtroom for the murder of over 4,000 American soldiers fighting the war in Iraq. Bugliosi sets forth the legal architecture and incontrovertible evidence that President Bush took this nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses—a war that has not only caused the deaths of American soldiers but also over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women, and children; cost the United States over one trillion dollars thus far with no end in sight; and alienated many American allies in the Western world.
