For Vincent Bugliosi, one of America ‘s foremost prosecutors and authors, George W. Bush’s purposeful crime of misleading America into war is a vile, despicable and prosecutable act. It angers Bugliosi deeply. So much so that he’s written a new book, The Prosecution Of George W. Bush For Murder.
To be clear, this is not a partisan effort. Not Republican v. Democrat or an assault on political ideology. It’s a legally binding and provable case for murder, that Bugliosi – an American patriot – would bring against any president regardless of any and all affiliation.
In Vincent Bugliosi’s own words:
“I want to state that in writing this book my motivation was not political. Whether I’m giving a final summation to the jury or writing one of my true crime books, credibility has always meant everything to me. Therefore, my only master – my only mistress – are the facts and objectivity. And this is why I can give you a 100% guarantee that if a Democratic president had done what George W. Bush did, I would have written the same exact book.”
It was obvious from his heartfelt delivery and palpable anger, that Bugliosi was telling the truth. The actions of George W. Bush have enraged him. Were Bush a Democrat, Bugliosi’s wrath would have been the same. First and foremost Bugliosi is a patriot, seeking justice for his nation – which will come in the form of a conviction.
Bugliosi’s presentation blew the roof off the venue at the Los Angeles ‘ Great Mind series, hosted by Progressive Democrats of America, and co-sponsored by CODEPINK, The LA Progressive, and several grassroots groups. He held the audience spellbound as he guided it down the twisted path of Bush’s hedonism and criminality. In true prosecutorial style, this master of law made his audience believe – and understand – that George Bush was guilty of murder.
True, the audience was principally progressive and already on Bugliosi’s side. Nonetheless, the evidence was overwhelming that Bush took this nation to war knowing there were NO weapons of mass destruction in Iraq . And despite the thousands upon thousands of deaths that he caused, George Bush wasn’t bothered in the least. In fact, while young Americans and Iraqis were dying, George Bush was having fun.
Bugliosi describes it this way:
“There’s no way to dispute it. The evidence is overwhelming that throughout the hell on earth that George Bush created in Iraq with over 100,000 people dying horrible, violent deaths and hundreds of thousands of their survivors crying out hysterically and having nightmares over what happened to their loved ones, George Bush smiled – smiled through it all. In fact you can look at a photograph of George Bush with 6 or 7 people in it smiling. And who’s got the biggest smile on his face? George Bush!
The evidence is very clear that while young American soldiers – 18 and 19 year old kids – who never had a chance to live out their dreams – were being blown to pieces by road side bombs in Iraq, George Bush was having a lot of fun and enjoying life to the fullest. I’m talking about running, bicycling, joking with friends, slapping backs, dancing and swirling his hips like Elvis… almost always seeming to be in the very best of spirits.
Oh I know the White House press people say he takes the loss of American lives hard and he suffers – but that’s just pure moonshine!… Suffering on one hand and having fun, joking around and enjoying life on the other, ARE SIMPLY INCOMPATIBLE.”
The audience, mainly comprised of American patriots angry at Congress for not impeaching Bush, erupted in a thunderous, albeit bittersweet response -messaging to Bugliosi that his observations were shared.
Seated in the audience were many attorneys – each in possession of a newly purchased book that they fanned furiously from footnote to text as they followed Bugliosi along. To say this audience was riveted is an understatement. In a nation demoralized by an unconstrained President and a spineless constrained Congress, Vincent Bugliosi offers the promise and potential for the justice that Congress failed to provide. The momentum is building.
