Bush or Manson: You Decide

We've not seen or heard much discussion of Vincent Bugliosi's new book, though our television viewing is limited (non-existent, actually) but we happened to see it on one of our excursions to the book store from which we were banned (& fired) some six yrs. ago, just because we made an innocent little statement about having to get out of there before we killed someone. Former D. A. Bugliosi doesn't think George W. Bush is quite as innocent as we are. The book is titled: The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, & Vince ain't kiddin', folks!! Amazon says:
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. [...] 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.
Might be worth a read. It dropped (As the teens say, see how hep we are?) 26 May 2008, don't know why there hasn't been more (Has there been any?) controversy about it than the McClellan opus. Too hot to handle, perhaps. An actual plan & call for action, as opposed to yet another Washington post hoc mea culpa. Wait, some Googling reveals an exceprt on HuffPo.
