About the Author
Bugliosi has uncommonly attained success in two separate and distinct fields, as an author and a lawyer. His excellence as a trial lawyer is best captured in the judgment of his peers. “Bugliosi is as good a prosecutor as there ever was,” Alan Dershowitz says. F. Lee Bailey calls Bugliosi “the quintessential prosecutor.” “There is only one Vince Bugliosi. He’s the best,” says Robert Tanenbaum, for years the top homicide prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.’s office. Most telling is the comment by Gerry Spence, who squared off against Bugliosi in a twenty-one-hour televised, scriptless “docu-trial” of Lee Harvey Oswald, in which the original key witnesses to the Kennedy assassination testified and were cross-examined. After the Dallas jury returned a guilty verdict in Bugliosi’s favor, Spence said, “No other lawyer in America could have done what Vince did in this case.”
Bugliosi lives with his wife, Gail, in Los Angeles.

Vincent Bugliosi is pissed, and he does not mince words in this scathing indictment of George W. Bush. He admits to being a democrat, but lays out his "case" with rational, fact-based arguments. He lists HOW a state's attorney general would bring a case to court, how he would survive a grand jury, and specifically how he would try it. It is damning and effective.
Maybe this is where I should state that I am a Republican and have never voted for a Democrat in my life. So dismissing my comments as those of an angry liberal aren't going to hold water. This isn't about politics, right vs. left, blue vs. red. It's about being an American, and deciding on what we believe in. If you read this book and still fail to believe that George Bush LIED to us and COVERED UP many of those lies, than you need to get your head out of the sand.
George Bush is responsible for the deaths of our soldiers who died in Iraq. Period. If you don't believe me, read the book. Then tell me that you aren't bothered by everything that has happened. Iraq has never been a direct threat to the people of the United States. There was a time when we only fought when we were attacked. The threat of attack was the absolute minimum justification for going to war. Bugliosi clearly lays out the reasons we went to war, and I guarantee you if we knew now what we were lied to then, we would have risin up collectively and not allowed this to happen. At least I hope we wouldn't have.Read more ›
The author's folksy and informal style is a little surprising until you realize, as I did early on, that he is presenting the case as an advocate would in court. So it's not dry exposition, but passion that is driving the argument.
Remarkably, we live in a country where even people in the know should know better and don't. How many people today recall that it was the U.S. who kicked out the UN inspectors who were begging for more time to assure that there were no dangerous WMD in Iraq?
Bugliosi shows convincingly that Bush and his people had a perverse agenda of wanting a war, something that no other President had ever wanted. He paints a picture of Bush that makes Michael Moore's film look like hagiography. His research and command of the facts are exemplary, as one might expect from a star prosecutor and his appeal to common sense is such that one wonders why no one has made these obvious points before. (Actually, some of us have here and there, such as former Senator George McGovern, who declared that you would have to be crazy--or think Saddam Hussein was crazy--to believe that Iraq was an imminent threat to the U.S.Read more ›
The reason that Bush, Rumsfield, Cheney and Rice went to war with Iraq is because George W. Bush simply wanted to go to war with Iraq. Just as Hitler was planning to go to war with Poland and France long before he became Chancellor of Germany, Bush was planning to go to war with Iraq long before he became President. Even though there was no connection between Iraq and the events of 9/11, that tragic event gave him the opportunity to sell his war dreams. Going to war had absolutely nothing to do with national security or any kind of imminent threat to the United States. It had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11 or Al Qaeda. In fact, the security of the United States has been considerably reduced as a result of Bush's adventure in Iraq. Therefore, the reason that the sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, siblings, best friends of thousands of Americans (and tens of thousands Iraqis) have had their intestines blown out of their bodies to be commingled with the pulverized brain tissue of the soldier sitting next to them in their unprotected, armor-free humvee is NOT because they bravely gave their lives for our country.Read more ›
