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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.
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!!
