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.

Format: Hardcover
Bugliosi's primal scream of rage and grief, documented with lawyerly precision, deserves attention for the revelations he assembles and documents. Whether a nation or a world in an already fragile and fragmented state could tolerate the divisive effects of his proposal is another matter, and this is perhaps why the mainstream media have ignored the book and failed to review it. The blue/red division in America is already unpleasant enough without the trial he proposes. Sensible men and women on both sides have already assessed George W. Bush, and the world will not (as Bush has claimed) have to wait for history to judge him for what he is. He has made himself known.

Beyond the imperfect nature of intelligence gathering and analysis underlying the entire matter of terrorism and the war in Iraq, Bugliosi has woven a credible tapestry of the deliberate lies and consistent incompetence on the part of key individuals named in the book that have cost America dearly in many ways and will do so for decades. Bugliosi's description, alone, of the outsourced (yes!) search for Osama Bin Laden and the failure to close on the known, identified and located source of 9/11, vs. the Iraq digression, is chillingly effective.

Despite its power and passion, and the orderly and systematic way in which the author presents his evidence and arguments, the book rants where it should speak with cold logic. If only the author and his editors (if any) had confined themselves to investigative reporting, which would have carried the case prima facie. Bugliosi's repeated over-the-top polemics and hyperbole belong on Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, not in print. Or do today's audiences listen only when screamed at?

Three significant omissions would have strengthened Bugliosi's arguments.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Vincent Bugliosi has written one of the most important books of 2008, clearly laying out the case against George Bush for lying our country into an illegal war and occupation of Iraq, and for deceiving the American people by creating the erroneous deception of linking Iraq to Al-Qaeda and the events of 9/11. There is no defense of the indefensible, and what George Bush and his co-conspirators have done to America is treasonous. May all Americans read this book, call for Bush, Cheney and Rice to be brought to justice, and help restore America's integrity and standing in the world. To do otherwise would be criminal. Thank you Vincent Bugliosi for writing this book.

Format: Hardcover
I had seen a pre-published version of this book and will now be buying it, as anyone with a sense of morality, ethics or patriotism MUST support its message, its conclusion and its brave author. I have all of Bugliosi's books, as he's one of the very few non-cowards writing in America today. He makes his case here, and to any rational mind (as opposed to the majority of the U.S. decision makers who pander to the marketplace of uninformed emotionalism), his conclusion is the only one possible or permissible in any civilized society -- which we in the U.S.A. (I don't say America, as Canada and the south Americas are generally more informed than we are on political matters), are every day becoming less qualified to call ourselves. This is an amazing book, full of unemotional wisdom, truth and common sense, and cannot be ignored by anyone interested in or passionate about the U.S. government.
