The most explosive and controversial book of the year by famed prosecutor and No. 1 "New York Times" bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi. "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder" hit the "NYT" bestseller list on publication in the US in June 2008 with a massive media campaign.Famed Charles Manson prosecutor and three times No. 1 "New York Times" bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi has written the most important and thought provoking book of his career. In a meticulously researched and clearly presented legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial for murder after he leaves his Presidency, Bugliosi delivers a searing indictment of the President and his administration. With what he believes is overwhelming evidence that President Bush started the war in Iraq under false pretences - a war that has caused great loss of life, cost close to $1 trillion, and alienated most of the world - Bugliosi argues that it is George W. Bush who must be held accountable for what he considers to be monumental crimes.In this ground-breaking book, Bugliosi, in his inimitable style, presents a powerful case against the man in the oval office, who he feels has yet to be brought to justice.
Who Is Responsible When the Man in Charge Makes Mi
I've read Bugliosi's work before; "Helter Skelter" & "Outrage." He's not the finest writer you will ever read. His prose is very reminiscent of a prosecutor's presentation to a jury. But he is very effective in making points and backing them up. What's a little surprising is that he says he's always been a Republican. This is not a hatchet job of some Democrat making political hay. He presents an argument to the public that our presidents should be responsible for what they do just as any CEO of any corporation. He makes a distinction between what George W. Bush did and what some corporate executive did by pointing out that corporate executives don't have people killed. Their mistakes cost money and they are usually mistakes in judgment or failure to predict a market trend. Bush went far beyond that and, according to the evidence Bugliosi presents, lied to the public and ignored information that was not in keeping with what he wanted. Then after eight years, billions of dollars, and thousands of lives, he goes home to his ranch, does nothing and lives better than most people in this country without the slightest accounting for what he's done. As a country, we should be asking if this is what we expect from out president. And Bugliosi does a remarkable job of framing that question.Bugliosi has more references than most text books. He makes no statements without quoting sources, giving dates, and any other relevant particulars to check for yourself. Even if you are a Bush supporter, you should at least take a look at the evidence. We need to ask ourselves why we have such widly varying standards when it comes to presidents. Why should Nixon have been impeached for a break-in and Clinton nearly so for voluntary sex between consenting adults, but someone who lies to start a war gets to walk away without a word.

The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder
This book has been very interesting. It is very well written and focuses on all of the reasons why the President could/should be prosecuted. I recommend it anyone that is interested (+or-) in George Bush, the two wars going on today, and whether the Iraq war was justified or not.
