Storyline

Famed Charles Manson prosecutor and New York Times bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi makes the most powerful, explosive, and thought-provoking argument of his storied career. In "The Prosecution of an American President", Bugliosi presents a meticulously researched legal case that proves George W. Bush took our nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses and is therefore, under the law, guilty of murder for the deaths of 4,500 young American soldiers who fought and died there. Bush's unlawful war also cost the United States over a trillion dollars; alienated many of our allies; caused the deaths of over 100,000 innocent Iraqi men, women, and children; and pushed a previously tranquil nation into unending civil war, atrocities and chaos. As a prosecutor dedicated to seeking justice, Bugliosi delivers a non-partisan argument based on hard facts and pure objectivity. This searing indictment also outlines a legally credible pathway to holding our highest government officials accountable... Written by cougarah

Compelling and Logical Presentation for Prosecution
28 February 2015 | by NanoFrogSee all my reviews

It would help in the healing of the world, in a strong, absolute and powerful way, if Bush, Cheney, and all the others involved., were in fact to be brought before the American Court. Everyone knows, even those who refuse to say it aloud, that Bush and his ranking associates lied their way into a war with Iraq. That the consequences of this thoughtless act are even now not only unstable, unfulfilled, inadequate and failing; they are in fact mushrooming, expanding and instigating disasters of nearly biblical proportions in the advent of the Islamic State (ISIL), relentless, brutal civil wars throughout the Middle East and northern Africa, millions of homeless and misplaced persons, trillions of dollars of economic and infrastructure destruction, and ultimately the senseless deaths of United States soldiers and hundreds of thousands of innocent peoples. It is inconceivable at some level that not one ranking official in the United States will state clearly for the record that George Bush lied, that he should be considered a criminal suspect and brought before a jury trial. Even today, these facts are still true. Mr. Bugliosi makes a legal, correctly defined, logical, legal argument for this point of view; indeed, a blueprint for someone, somewhere to take up this cause. Perhaps the most insidious fact of our political system at this precise moment is the absolute impunity of men like Bush, Koch Brothers, Cheney, Fox News, even the GOP itself to violate law, disguise and hide the truth, and deflect blame, or even the need for blame. This tragic indifference to the integrity of our country is at least addressed on this theoretical, yet factual and legal argument by an intelligent and gifted prosecutor to fellow practitioners and students of the rule of law in the United States. It is also sad, and not a little suspicious, that this film is not widely known. The Main Stream Media, that faithless and faceless entity, has ignored it almost completely. Find it. Watch it. Pass it along.
