Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Vincent Bugliosi has written the most important and thought-provoking book of his prolific career. In a meticulously researched and clearly presented legal case that puts George W. Bush on trial for murder after he leaves his presidency, Bugliosi delivers a searing indictment of the president and his administration. With what he believes is overwhelming evidence that President Bush took the nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses - a war that has caused great loss of life, cost this nation close to $1 trillion, and alienated most of our allies in the Western world - Bugliosi argues that it is George W. Bush who must be held accountable for what Bugliosi considers to be monumental crimes. In this groundbreaking book, Bugliosi, in his inimitable style, presents a powerful case against the man in the oval office.

Well argued, insightful and thought provoking!

This book is a must-read to all consciencious Americans, and students of logical thinking.

Bugliosi has built a tight, fact-based case against a criminal President.

The well-researched information provided in this book, supported by Bugliosi's experience as a successful prosecutor, helps elevate an average reader to the level of a critical observer.

I find my own evaluation and thinking (or lack thereof) of events post Sept 11 being challenged, and challenged well.

The audio is an interesting listen. The narrator does a great job presenting material. Not a moment of boredom.

Very disappointing

Bugliosi gained a lot of cred in my mind, with 'Helter Skelter' and even more so 'Reclaiming History..'. So I had high hopes for what I felt was a well-deserved reckoning for the father of the nightmare this country had to endure for the last 8 years and the aftermath from which we now have to resurrect our country's moral compass, for ourselves and in the eyes of the rest of the world. I expected a cool, concise and most of all convincing justification for such an audacious title - along the lines of 'Reclaiming History..'. This, however was way too much of an emotional rant; a rambling and sputtering gripe-session, so biased, and often distracted by irrelevant details, as to actually detract from the meaningful, and critical material that's being laid out. This was more like listening to a kind of bizarro Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter (and Cashman's subtle impersonation of Bush when reading his quotes doesn't help much in this regard). I'm glad he wrote it, but wish his publisher had held him to a higher standard, telling him to turn down the bile, and steering him away from issues like academy award-winning rap songs, sexual promiscuity amongst the younger generation, or chronicling Bush's 'happiness' in casual press conferences. Bugliosi's anger is justifiable; his base premise is spot-on. But the curmudgeonly background noise and judgmental tangents he slogs through have unwittingly framed them as the bitter rantings of a pissed-off grandfather talking about 'kids these days'. Criticism aside, I admire his courage, and still think there is a fundamental need for true justice and reconciliation if America to right itself. To that end and in the spirit of 'Prosecution' I highly recommend reading Scott Horton's essay in Harper's Dec '08: Justice after Bush: Prosecuting an outlaw administration.
I generally like your work Mr. B, but this one needs a serious makeover to achieve its ambitions.
