Keith Olbermann talks with Jonathan Turley (law professor) about a piece in the conservative Daily Telegraph where Boris Johnson, Mayor Of London, advises George W. Bush not to bring his book tour to Britain, because he could face arrest as a war criminal.
Listen to this famous prosecutor make his case against Bush for first degree murder in the deaths of 100,000 innocent Iraqis and 4,000 American troops. It's airtight and indisputable. He argues that Bush should receive the death penalty with just cause.
Vincent Bugliosi is an American attorney and author, best known for prosecuting Charles Manson and other defendants accused of the Tate-LaBianca murders. His most recent book is "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder."
Vincent spoke before a Tent State University / Alliance for Real Democracy event held at Cuernavaca Park in Denver, Colorado during DNC.
The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder is a 2008 book by former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi. It argues that George W. Bush took the United States into the invasion of Iraq under false pretenses and should be tried for murder for the deaths of American soldiers in Iraq when he leaves office in 2009. The book was virtually ignored by the mainstream media but still sold over 130,000 copies within its first three months of release.
Bugliosi argues that Bush intentionally misled Congress and the American people about the evidence that he said mandated going into Iraq and overthrowing Saddam Hussein. Therefore, Bugliosi argues, the deaths of over 4,000 American soldiers and 100,000 Iraqi civilians since hostilities began (as of spring 2008) amount to murder. He further states that any of the 50 state attorneys general, as well as any district attorney in the United States, has ample grounds to indict Bush for the murder of any soldier or soldiers who live in their state or county. Bugliosi says that if he were prosecuting the case, he would seek imposition of the death penalty, and that impeachment alone would be "a joke", considering the magnitude of Bush's alleged crimes.
The strongest evidence against Bush, Bugliosi says, is a speech on October 7, 2002 claiming that Iraq posed an imminent threat to the security of the United States and was capable of attacking America at any time with his stockpile of weapons of mass destruction. However, a National Intelligence Estimate of less than a week earlier stated that while Iraq did have WMD capability, it had no plans to use it except in self-defense. Moreover, according to Bugliosi, the president and his administration edited the "White Paper", or declassified version of the NIE released to Congress and the public, in a way that made the Iraqi threat seem more ominous than it actually was. In addition, Bugliosi says that the Manning Memo shows that, far from making serious efforts to avoid war, Bush considered the possibility of provoking Saddam into starting a war by sending U2 reconnaissance aircraft, falsely painted in UN colors, on flights over Iraq along with fighter escorts. He also argues that Bush pressured intelligence agencies to find proof that Saddam somehow helped al-Qaeda plan the 9-11 attacks.
I don't know where the world courts stand with everything in truth but I would be all for seeing Bush, Chaney and the other hawks in their little sewing circle brought up on charges and more. I know of at least one Top Ranking and heavily Admired General that would testify against them alongside an extensive list of other elected as well as military personnel, some of whom witnessed his tyraids against Iraq and Sadam well before his daddy fixed the elections for him... err, before he became President .
The crew of troublemakers should be Water Boarded first and forced to live under Abu Ghraib conditions and other such fun & games for the year+ it will take to organize the trial. Torture them for the same of doing so, just so they can understand what Torture is and isn't.
I think it would be wise to have such sessions broadcast on the Net so the American public can hear for themselves, how this team deceived us on purpose about the war, the profiteering, and all the shenanigans they are guilty of when it comes to favoritism of corporations over the nation. We may as well hang them for treason as well as the crimes against humanity/war crimes.
Don't forget Tony Blair in all of this. He stood side by side with Bush on all decisions and has even said he supported the removal of Hussein even WITHOUT evidence of WMDs. Perhaps, if that London Mayor dude wanted to arrest someone, he would have someone already living in his jurisdiction.
Just an observation.
Yep, Blair most certainly shares a fair part of the burden here.
My more curious bit of interest centers on how the Bush Admin manipulated the smaller nations into compliance. . . not the cover story but the "CIA" side of things, to put it kindly. I simply can't help but believe that some blackmail antics were afoot.
