The prosecution of Bush, Cheney, et al for murder?
Yes, there is a new book on that by Vincent Bugliosi, entitled "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder"(Vanguard Press, 2008) but I admit to not having read it yet. And I also admit Bugliosi still needs to repair some credibility with me after his ridiculously long tome (1,600 pages) about the JFK Assassination that managed to obscure the growing recognition that JFK was the victim of a Mob hit that may have included renegade anti-Castro CIA folks. See, most recently, David Kaiser's new book from Harvard University Press (yes, that should raise some eyebrows!), "The Road to Dallas."
But see this interview with investigative journalist Jane Meyer, one of the Wall St. Journal's top reporters--and one of the most respected among colleagues and official sources, too--in the past two decades. She is talking about her new book, "The Dark Side" (Doubleday, 2008). The interview is a persuasive introduction as to why Bush, Cheney, and Gonzalez, among others, should be investigated for potential criminal prosecution.
They knew what they were doing, they were lying and covering up what they were doing, and recognized they were on flimsy legal grounds for what they were doing. When one adds in what it was in fact they were doing, that is the type of conduct that raises the need for an investigation for criminal prosecution. Had enough Democrats and Republicans had the guts to impeach Bush and Cheney, we might already know more information to further support this conclusion. A shame, but at least things are starting to move a bit forward on that front now.
