FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
An Evening with Vincent Bugliosi
The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder
(VENTURA, Ca.) -September 28, 2008. The success of Vincent Bugliosi, in his quest to hold Bush accountable for the deaths of our military men and women who have been killed in Iraq has gained a greater likelihood of happening in the near term, with the promising candidacy of Charlene Dennett who is running for state district attorney in the state of Vermont. Vermont has 35 towns which passed resolutions to impeach Bush and the town of Brattleboro has passed an ordinance to arrest Bush for war crimes if he should enter there terroritory. With such wide spread agreement amongst the citizens of that state, Dennett is a powerful contender in that race.
Vincent Bugliosi, prosecutor extrordinarre and author of the New York Times best seller, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, will be speaking in Ventura County Oct. 10 at 7 PM at the beautiful Poinsettia Pavilion located at 3451 Foothill Road, Ventura, CA 93003. Bugliosi will be signing his book afterwards. Free admission with purchase of his book at the door. Otherwise admission is $8.
In his career at the L.A. County District Attorney's office, Bugliosi 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 th e basis of his classic, Helter Skelter, the biggest selling true crime book in publishing history.
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 over 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.
As a prosecutor who is dedicated to seeking justice, Bugliosi, in his inimitable style, delivers a non-partisan argument, free from party lines and instead based upon hard facts and pure objectivity. 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 has this to say, "I set forth an air tight legal case that proves beyond all reasonable doubt that George Bush took this nation to war under false pretenses, a lie, in Iraq. If justice means anything at all in America, we have no choice but to bring George Bush to court on murder charges for the deaths of over 4,000 American soldiers."
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. With Congress having, thus far, stalled impeachment efforts, trying the President for murder in a court of law for sending our military men and women to their deaths is a war based on lies may be the last recourse of the American people.
