Famous Prosecutor Wants Bush Tried for Murder

Posted by libhom Thursday, July 24, 2008

GDAEman edited some Democracy Now video with an interesting twist on the visual imagery of "credits" at the end.



Here's the full transcript of Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez's interview with Vincent Bugliosi. His brief bio follows:

JUAN GONZALEZ: We now turn to a man considered to be one of the best prosecutors in this country. In his career at the LA County District Attorney’s office, he successfully prosecuted 105 of 106 felony jury trials, including twenty-one murder convictions without a single loss. Alan Dershowitz calls him “as good a prosecutor as there ever was,” and the legendary F. Lee Bailey calls him “the quintessential prosecutor.” His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his classic book, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history. Two of his other books, And the Sea Will Tell and Outrage, also reached number one on the New York Times bestseller list.

Bugliosi has a strong sense of mission.
VINCENT BUGLIOSI: Well, in my book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, I set forth an airtight legal case against George Bush that proves beyond all reasonable doubt that George Bush took this nation to war under false pretenses, on a lie, in Iraq, and therefore, under the law, he is guilty of murder for the deaths of over 4,000 young American soldiers in Iraq fighting his war, not your war or my war or America’s war, but his war.

Interestingly enough, there have been billions of very harsh critical words written and said about George Bush, none of which he could possibly care less about. So the words are absolutely meaningless. But up until now, other than words, no one has done anything at all to George Bush. No impeachment, no investigation of him.

But this book here, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, in it, I put together a case against George Bush that could result—it absolutely could result in his being prosecuted for first-degree murder in an American courtroom. I set forth the legal architecture against him, the overwhelming evidence of his guilt and the jurisdiction to prosecute him. And I say that if justice means anything at all in America, and if we’re not going to forget about these 4,000 young American soldiers who are in their cold graves right now as I am talking to you and who came back from George Bush’s war in a box or a jar of ashes, I say we have no choice but to bring murder charges against the son of privilege from Crawford, Texas.

I may be sounding presumptuous to you right now, Amy and Juan, but I’m telling you this: I am going after George Bush. I may not succeed, but I’m not going to be satisfied until I see him in an American courtroom being prosecuted for first-degree murder.

The criminality of the Bush regime is something that seldom is even whispered about in the corporate media. That's one of many examples of why we need honest, independent media like Democracy Now.

  2. It would be wonderful if Bush would be tried. Clearly he has evaded impeachment for the past 6 years because no one in Washington cares about the truth. It would be better if Bush could have been removed from office years ago, but justice is something bought and paid for in America. I doubt anyone with half a brain doubts the fact that there is a massive and ongoing network of the very wealthy who influence it. The fact that Nancy Pelosi flip-flopped on this is some evidence. Too little, too late.

  4. Bugliosi initiates his book asking the reader to see the elephant in the room, in this case that a "president of the United States" can, and has, committed felonies. The next steps then follow logically.

    As for the list of other criminals at the end of the video, I'm always looking for more to add, so feel free to add your suggestions.
