Product Description

About the Author

Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the L.A. 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 classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history. Two of Bugliosi's other 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, has been heralded as "epic" and "a book for the ages."Bugliosi has uncommonly attained success in two separate and distinct fields, as an author and a lawyer. His excellence as a trial lawyer is best captured in the judgment of his peers. "Bugliosi is as good a prosecutor as there ever was," Alan Dershowitz says. F. Lee Bailey calls Bugliosi "the quintessential prosecutor." "There is only one Vince Bugliosi. He's the best," says Robert Tanenbaum, for years the top homicide prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.'s office. Most telling is the comment by Gerry Spence, who squared off against Bugliosi in a twenty-one-hour televised, scriptless "docu-trial" of Lee Harvey Oswald, in which the original key witnesses to the Kennedy assassination testified and were cross-examined. After the Dallas jury returned a guilty verdict in Bugliosi's favor, Spence said, "No other lawyer in America could have done what Vince did in this case."Bugliosi lives with his wife, Gail, in Los Angeles.

Be prepared to do some thinking outside the box if you read this book, but it will certainly pay off. Renowned former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi makes a compelling case that U.S. President George W. Bush could be realistically put on trial for murder (and possibly given the death penalty!) for his utterly false reasoning in going to war with Iraq.
Bugliosi's justifiable rage percolates throughout the book, his main argument being this: Bush said Saddam Hussein was concealing weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in Iraq, and therefore this presented an imminent danger to the national security of America. But as we all know, no WMDs were ever found in Iraq, therefore Bugliosi argues that the reason behind the whole war was a sham, and the thousands of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq should be on the legal record of Bush.
If U.S. Presidents (or any high elected official) could be prosecuted legally for murder, perhaps they would put a lot more thought into going to war if they knew they could be held accountable for their actions in a court of law - just like the rest of us.

For anyone with any interest in this crazy world of ours this is "must" reading. But make sure you have your blood pressure medication on hand if your on "meds". During his career the author prosecuted 106 cases and won 105. He prosecuted 21 murder cases and won them all. This is by no means a frivolous book! Clearly the charges are serious and the author takes great pains to make his case.

To find out why Bugliosi believes that the unholy triumvirate of Bush, Cheney and Rice should be prosecuted for murder you'll have to read this book. Get it and read it!!

Bugliosi was an outstanding prosecutor and is a good writer. The book is thought provoking and well represented. However, as strong as the argument is, reminded me of Don Quixote. That, perhaps, is more a comment on who you are and/or what office you hold as to where you are in relation to the law - above or below it. Especially interesting in the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.

The book was an interesting read and it was supposed to be a rant against Dubya so that's all good, but I find the author too often displayed what I thought was partisanship. Perhaps the former president should be tried as a war criminal, Mr B did all the research and I take him at his word in so far as the assertions he makes in the book, and if he's telling the truth than I'd be inclined to agree with the conclusion that Mr Bush and those around him at the time should be required to answer some hard questions. However, I think he goes out of his way to make Mr Bush look bad, even to the point of making things up. At one point, when talking about 911 and the fact that the White House did not respond to excessive chatter leading up to the event, he frames it as though he believes a bunch of evil men from a far away country flew airplanes into large steel frame buildings, causing them to collapse from the resulting fires and killing hundreds of people. I just find it hard to believe that a person with such intricate knowledge about such matters can possibly belive that story - I mean saying that there are mountains of indisputable evidence which suggest that, at the very least, the authorities took extreme measures to cover things up would be a gross understatement (not to mention the fact that science, as we understand it, absolutely disproves the government's conspiracy theory regarding the events of September 11, 2001). Then he goes on to insult people in the know about 911 by calling them "left wing nuts". Unless the author is himself an idiot, I have to believe the only reason he would perpetuate the grand myths surrounding the event, and even slander the people who have a clue about it, would be because he's on a mission to further a particular point of view.Read more ›
