Vincent Bugliosi, the former LA County prosecutor who infamously convicted Charles Manson (which he wrote about in his bestseller, Helter Skelter), is now laying out a case for murder against President Bush, suggesting no less than a sentence of death.
In an excerpt of from his new book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, on the Huffington Post, *Bugliosi criticizes left wing pundits and the average man on the street for arguing that Bush may have misled or even lied to the public to create support for the war in Iraq, but not demanding consequences beyond being more skeptical the next time around.
…in America, we apparently impeach presidents for having consensual sex outside of marriage and trying to cover it up. If we impeach presidents for that, then if the president takes the country to war on a lie where thousands of American soldiers die horrible, violent deaths and over 100,000 innocent Iraqi civilians, including women and children, even babies are killed, the punishment obviously has to be much, much more severe. That’s just common sense…
…For anyone interested in true justice, impeachment alone would be a joke for what Bush did. [from HuffPo]
I get the feeling he’d take this case pro bono… imagine the amount of publicity and how it would help the book sales!
