Famed Charles Manson prosecutor and three time #1 New York Times bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi has written the most powerful, explosive, and thought-provoking book of his storied career.

In The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, Bugliosi presents a tight, meticulously researched legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial in an American courtroom for the murder of nearly 4,000 American soldiers fighting the war in Iraq. Bugliosi sets forth the legal architecture and incontrovertible evidence that President Bush took this nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses—a war that has not only caused the deaths of American soldiers but also over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women, and children; cost the United States over one trillion dollars thus far with no end in sight; and alienated many American allies in the Western world.

As a prosecutor who is dedicated to seeking justice, Bugliosi, in his inimitable style, delivers a non-partisan argument, free from party lines and instead based upon hard facts and pure objectivity.

A searing indictment of the President and his administration, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder also outlines a legally credible pathway to holding our highest government officials accountable for their actions, thereby creating a framework for future occupants of the oval office.

Vincent Bugliosi calls for the United States of America to return to the great nation it once was and can be again. He believes the first step to achieving this goal is to bring those responsible for the war in Iraq to justice.

Editorial Reviews

Vincent Bugliosi is the only American true crime author who has written three New York Times bestsellers. His record as a lawyer is even more impressive: In his career at the L.A. County District Attorney's office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including all 21 homicide cases. In The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, he tackles his most challenging case yet. This controversial book presents a searing legal indictment against the 43rd president of the United States, arguing that he must be held accountable for crimes related to the Iraq War. Meticulously researched and volatile.

Mr. Bugliosi clearly lays out the facts of how Bush, Chaney and co. lied to us to get us into a war that has cost us so dearly. Why is there no outcry for an investigation? Are we all sheep? Mr. Bugliosi's anger in the book is palpable, as it should be. Maybe if the American people educate themselves on Bush and co. deceit and rush to war, justice may prevail...

After reading this book, I can't help but disagree with the entire premise of this book. I found it very well documented and researched, but deeply flawed. From the beginning the Author make his intent clear, and is blinded by many of the facts he uses that could be used to make the exact opposite case. It is just another one of those books, that if you hate this current President, then you will agree with the author. If we were to agree with the premise that this author uses, then every president before this one would have to be placed on trial as well.

Vincent Bugliosi presents the now documented facts of the real truth why America is in Iraq. They lead to the door of non other than George W. Bush. Many in his administration are guilty too (i.e. Rove, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Powell to name a few) as well as those in Congress who also had knowledge of the very facts but did nothing to bring the truth to light. This book focuses on and presents the facts in a simple and straightforward manner. These facts, along with the blood of those spilled in Iraq, calls for American justice to hold those accountable as no one is above the law. Let justice prevail. If done, I truly believe the rest of the world will take notice and America will regain its credibility for doing so. Thank you Mr. Bugliosi for taking the time to present some of the material that is evidence enough. You probably only scratched the surface. Eric Holder has a no-brainer of a case sitting on his doorstep. But will he take action for America ?

The title grabbed me and I had high hopes for this book. It is poorly written, and worst of all, there is not a single piece of objective evidence. Instead, this is a man writing from wild emotions and extremism. Save your money.

9-11_WAS_INSIDE_JOB More than 1 year ago
Making the legal case easily understandable for those like me who never studied law, this book proves BUSH IS GUILTY OF MURDER FOR THE DEATH OF EVERY US SOLDIER IN HIS FALSE WAR and shows how how he can & should be charged by the Attorney General of the US (as he explains, unlikely), any state or district attorney of any county where soldiers resided (more likely). It explains how, once that happens, NO VERDICT BUT GUILTY CAN BE REACHED. I only gave 4 stars for Research because in the book he says 9-11 wasn't an Inside Job, dismissing it without providing any evidence, failing to do what he asks readers to do in the intro: be open-minded & weigh the facts. It's been proven far beyond any reasonable doubt 9-11 WAS INSIDE JOB. To research it, read "The New Pearl Harbor" by Dr. David Ray Griffin, "Inside Job" by investigative journalist Jim Marrs, "The Shell Game" by NY Times bestselling author Steve Alten and many more thoroughly researched & well-documented books. Google "WTC7," "NORAD stand down," "Pentagon missile," "WTC Controlled Demolition," "PNAC document signed by Cheney called for New Pearl Harbor," etc. See documentaries on "Loose Change," "The Great Conspiracy," "David Ray Griffin speech," etc. View (over 600 Architects & Engineers demanding Congressional Investigation, proves all 3 WTC collapses were Controlled Demolition), (hundreds of former govt. & military officials--many very high rank--explain how govt. story of 9-11 is clearly opposite of truth), & sites by pilots, physicists, demolition professionals, etc. all saying the same. The 9-11 Truth Movement is the 21st century's biggest cultural phenomenon, uniting millions in the US & many more worldwide, especially Europe where media is not as controlled. It's even breaking through US mass media. FX hit show "Rescue Me" (about FDNY post-9/11) explores it throughout its 5th season, starting April 7 Tuesdays at 10:00. In the 2nd episode, a firefighter played by star Daniel Sunjata (part of the 9-11 Truth Movement in real life) explains Bush staying in school after 2nd tower was hit & PNAC plan for world domination to a French reporter. Still, this book shows how the easily proven lies of Bush, Cheney, Rice, etc. make them all guilty of murder, there's no statute of limitations, & all it takes is 1 prosecutor in the local, state or federal level. He offers to volunteer service as Special Prosecutor or advisor, which is like Michael Jordan still in his prime asking to help your basketball team any way he can. Since the book's release, he's testified on it to Congress (see on YouTube) & held press conferences with an Attorney General candidate who promised to prosecute Bush for murder if elected. This can & likely will happen. Spreading awareness of this book is the best means to make it happen as soon as possible, hopefully before these mass-murderers get to live out their natural lives.

I have finally read what I have been wishing I could write. I feel sorry for those who have written negative reviews but of course, they are misguided Bush fans so we could not expect less. Fortunately, I have heard Republican friends voice their dismay with this presidency.

Mr. Bugliosi has made it clear that our servicemen who lost their lives were misguided about what they were fighting for as are those who are still fighting. They do as ordered by others who do as ordered who may or may not believe the propaganda of Bush et al.

Of course, if there had been a draft the streets would be filled with protesters. But as long as there are enlistees we keep quiet. The sad thing is even we who have hated the process since 9/11, have been too weak-kneed to speak up, except for a few peace marches, letters to our congress people, and complaining to family and friends.

Thank you, Mr. Bugliosi!

the writer needs to read the quotes of Al Gore who wanted the end of Saddam's regime. Bill Clinton also bombed Iraq. If there was a no star rating that's what this deserves!!!

If anyone wants to know the truth from a reputable author, I recommend reading this book. Politics aside, people need to recognize what really happened during the "W" years and what the true agenda was. It was the war the bankrupted our nation. People need to see beyond the hype.

This latest offering from California's literary lawyer, certainly stokes the passions of its readers. But then it would, wouldn't it? A detailed exposé of an unpopular president during an election year coupled with a very unpopular war was bound to fire-up aggrieved Democrats and all those who are anti everything else. It would be churlish to suggest that that might have been its intention. Mr Bugliosi is a man of many talents. He is an acclaimed and accomplished criminal layer with significant successes to his credit. He is a successful politician. He writes New York Times best sellers. But most of all, he has almost frightening singleness of purpose. Once he gets into something, he is like a dog with a bone. All of these talents and character traits come together in 'The Prosecution of George W Bush for Murder', to very good effect. Fundamentally, Bugliosi's premise is that for reasons unknown (Bugliosi never offers a motive for the alleged offence), George Bush conspired with others to fabricate a justification for a shooting war with Iraq resulting in the unlawful killing of 4000 American soldiers. The book is a courtroom drama. The first act is a summation to the jury. Bugliosi uses his best endeavours to prepare them (readers), for the evidence to come by destroying the President's character. The second act provides the . who said what, and when did they say it, narrative. The final act rubbishes the Bush Administration generally, and those closest to the President in particular. If you believe that all Republicans are pond-slime, and GWB is the slimiest of them all, you will enjoy these 352 pages. But if you are of a more balanced persuasion, you will be mindful of the fact that it is written by a rabid Democrat, with an unquenchable thirst for celebrity. Regardless of the amusement value of the work, it is based on a false premise. The President took the country (and 32 other countries), to war, of that there can be no doubt. The question is not the effect, but the cause. Mr.Bugliosi does not know the reason why the President took the USA to war. And the President does not have to tell him or anyone else why he did what he did. And that is why an indictment for murder would fail. George Bush would only have to confirm his name to the court; every other question would inadmissible on the grounds of National Security. Mr.Bugliosi knows that perfectly well. Bugliosi's compilation of the evidence is strikingly impressive. His attention to detail deserves the cover price alone. But where he falls down, and I suggest looses his readers, is his uncontrollable need to insult everybody. He refers to Condoleezza Rice as a water-carrier. Bush and everyone working for him are 'pusillanimous small men'. I shall spare the reader other, and more offensive invective. Once you start abusing the accused, your case is lost. If you believe - as Vincent Bugliosi does, that George W. Bush is a heartless criminal who sacrifices American youth with reckless abandon, then this work should find a place on your shelf. I will end by suggesting that you look at pictures of George Bush when he was elected, and look at him now. He has aged 25 years. After reading Bugliosi's book, you might be astonished by this, as he informs us that ol' George spends all his time on holiday having fun, and doesn't give a thought to the misery of grieving parents - or anything else come to that.

I agree with every thing in your book, however i think you and America have missed the true reason for book. in oct. 2001 areil sharon said to Shimon Peres." WE THE JEWISH PEOPLE CONTROL AMERICA AND THE AMERICANS KNOW IT.HE WAS REFFERING TO THE REPUBLICAN WHITE HOUSE, NOT YOU AND ME This statement can be found on this web site along with other truths." RADIOISLAM.ORG" Ahmed Rami I will be sending you via snail mail in the near future a book titled the protocols of zion.PLAN FOR WORLD ENSLAVEMENT and if you read on RADIOISLAM.ORG web site the "TALMUD" I will be sending you the four volume set of editorials Published in Henry Fords newspaper the Dearborn independent published in the erarly 1920s I am sure you will see the real CONTROL OF the puppet Bush lie hose AND THE TRUTH YOU PUT FORTH IN YOUR BOOK WIL BECOME MANAFEST. IRAQ IS ISREALS' ENEMY NOT AMERICAS. HOW WAS SADDAM A THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY WAS HE GOING TO SEND HIS NAVAL ARMADA TO DESTROY US??? I WILL MAIL YOU ALSO SOME STATEMENTS MADE BY G WASHINGTON AND THOMAS JEFFERSON ON THE SUBJECT. PLUS I WOULD RECOMMEND A BOOK BY JOHN PERKINS "CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN" ABOUT THE THINGS HE WAS DOING WITH OUT REALIZING WHO WAS THE MASTERMIND BEHIND HIS TRAINING AND ACTIONS. when He finally come to his senses he quit. same tactics used in ROME, SPAIN, and GERMANY THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

Like many of Vincent Bugliosi's books his writing captures the reader with his style. After our President has recently admitted to beginning the Iraqi war for no good cause and with the VP's confession claiming he approved of torture on National TV also, many of us wonder, Will one Prosecutor in the United States arrest these men for what they have done to our country and over 4000 of our soldiers? Read the true reason for why Bush did what he did in beginning a war that can't be won. As Bugliosi explains to us with painfully spelled out details, I believe he makes the case for murder. I found myself not surprised but horrified that so many have died for one very unpatriotic, self important man. Born on third base and having assumed his entire life that he has by himself hit a triple, we find the real reason Bush commmitted thousands of our soldiers to a senseless death for his own self serving reasons. None of these reasons have anything to do with anything so honorable as his protecting us. There are his people and the rest of us to Bush. It made me furious, it made me cry for the deaths he caused for nothing. Does he really hate American's who "Are not his people" and are there really so few of his "people" to begin with controling the rest of us? I'd recommend this to anyone who needs the truth, and to those who can handle the facts as they are there in all of their heartbreaking honesty. I believe the case for murder is made. The question is can America handle the facts and do something about it so that no President does this to us again. Bush belongs in jail and so does Cheney. The facts are in the book.

Vincent Bugliosi is a prosecutor. This book is written in the prosecutorial style prefered by Mr. Bugliosi. All the facts are layed out for the potential jury, and all the counter arguments and mitigating circumstances are countered for the judge and jury.

Mr. Bugliosi's courage and audacity in writing this book are astounding. To suggest that the U.S. prosecute a president for murder for taking the country to war is certainly audacious.

It made me wonder why the major book reviewers declined to review this book. After reading the book it's clear to me that they probably chose to not review this book because it is poorly written. Sarcasm is used to little affect. Mr. Bugliosi's pattern of speech is colloquial rather than cogent and concise. That's a shame, because Mr. Bugliosi is an intelligent educated man. His anger is understandable. After all, W chose to attack Iraq for no discernable reason. Mr. Bugliosi discussed potential reasons for the attack, but like me, is unable to get inside W's head to figure out why he attacked another country.

I would love to see a prosecutor choose to prosecute W for his act of taking the U.S. to war in Iraq for no reason. If murder is the charge, that's fine with me, but I would love to see him prosecuted for war crimes. Perhaps that would set an international standard that would make other world leaders think twice before firing the first shot.

With all its flaws, this is an important book. It tells the Americal public that the emperior has no clothes. That's a lesson we need to take to heart. We often confuse patriotism with compliance. Patriotism is much more difficult to achieve.

You would have to be a fool without a brain to believe George Bush would be guilty for "murdering" 4,000 soldiers. The majority of the soldiers in Iraq know what they're fighting for. A problem I have with this is accusing a president who was dealt extremely difficult circumstances with murder and not the actual cowards who kill our brave soldiers. A disgrace...don't waste your money.
