I disagree with the reader who stated that one's enjoyment depends on politics. This book should be required reading by every American -- our country was lead into war. We need to hold those responsible accountable. There is nothing partisan or political about the legal analysis.
Only quibble is -- as the Publisher's Review quote notes -- the attempts at humor and conversations with the grand jurors seems forced and cutesy. Stick with the facts of your case -- they are an absorbing read all alone.
Like reviewer Prall, I found a number of small errors in the text, but the criminal behavior is quite clearly defined and there is plenty of evidence to exceed the "Probable Cause" standard for issuing an indictment. On page 48 de la Vega refers to "all 24 of you". On page 238 the Grand Jury is called a "group of 25 people", which appears to be another error unless the court reporter and AUSA are included in the group! Federal Grand Juries (in my district at least) are populated with exactly 23 members, not 24 or 25. Any action taken requires 12 jurors to vote in favor. The odd number of jurors avoids tie votes.Read more ›
Readers waiting for the next protest march to begin as well as those waking up from a six year coma should consider this required reading.
The service Ms. de la Vega has done with this work is the stuff of true patriotic heroism. I Thank Her, it remains up to the rest of us to see that this is step one not the end of the story.
Elizabeth de la Vega has produced a tantalizing, highly readable analysis of the run up to the war in Iraq. Through the device of a fictionalized grand jury presentation, she brings the story to life without turning it into a flight of fancy. And de la Vega builds a powerful case for greater accountability and integrity in our nation's highest offices. The facts revealed in "U.S. v. Bush" are ones that, for the sake of our country, we cannot afford to ignore.
