About the Author

Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder convictions without a single loss. His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his true-crime classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history. Two of Bugliosi's other true-crime books--And the Sea Will Tell and Outrage--also reached #1 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list. No other American true-crime writer has ever had more than one book that achieved this ranking. His latest book, Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, was also a New York Times bestseller, and is being made into a ten-part HBO miniseries, for which Tom Hanks will be a producer. Bugliosi lives with his wife of many years in Los Angeles.

From AudioFile

The Charles Manson prosecutor and author proposes trying George W. Bush for murder. He cites the evidence in detail and discusses the legal issues in a reasoned analysis that does not conceal his anger at our 43rd President. Bugliosi himself narrates for the first half-hour, and his tone of unrestrained petulance makes the listening painful. Narrator Marc Cashman then takes over, using an objective tone more appropriate for tender ears. Cashman's imitation of Bush's speech mannerisms when he is delivering quotes may bring the only moments of humor to the production. Using a normal voice for all other quotations, Cashman says "quote" and "unquote" before and after each. Because there are hundreds of quotes, this repetition becomes a distraction.

Any nut off the street can write a book that claims Bush should be tried for murder. But Vincent Bugliosi is no nut -- he's a respected criminal prosecuter and author of several well researched, well received books.

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.

What else would one expect from this brilliant lawyer? He is not afraid to address the issues that everyone else turns away from in a state of denial. His treatment of the deception the Bush administration used to promote the Iraq war for political purposes is the detailed account that Frank Rich's THE GREATEST STORY EVER SOLD did not quite make. Why? Because he starts with the premise that the Bush administration really can be shown to be criminally negligent at best. And while I loved Rich's book, Bugliosi's is such a knock-out punch that it's truly hard to read it as "over-the-top" even if you start reading it and expect to feel that way.

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.

I highly recommend Vincent Bugliosi's new book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder (Vanguard Press, 2008). Bugliosi is a highly admired prosecutor. He prosecuted the Manson family trials. He has never lost a murder conviction. He usually votes Democratic, though he supported McCain in 2000. He now offers an objective, factual, spin-free treatise on one of the greatest crimes in American history.

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.
