Death Penalty for Bush?

Bugliosi Makes the Case
June 2008
If Vincent Bugliosi were prosecuting George W. Bush for the murder of the more than 4,000 American soldiers who have died in Iraq, he would seek the death penalty.
“If I were the prosecutor, there is no question I would seek the death penalty,” Bugliosi told CORPORATE CRIME REPORTER in a wide-ranging interview.
Bugliosi is the author of the just published book The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder (Vanguard Press, 2008).
“I’m urging here that an American jury try George Bush for first degree murder. I want to see him on trial for murder before an American jury. And if they convict him, it will be up to the jury to decide what his punishment is. One of the options would be the imposition of the death penalty. If I were prosecuting him, absolutely I would seek the death penalty. As Governor of Texas, George Bush signed death warrants – 152 out of 152 – most of them for people who only committed one murder.”
Bugliosi said he is sending a copy of his book to all fifty state Attorneys General, offering his assistance in prosecuting Bush for homicide.
“I’m herein enclosing a copy of my book The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder,” Bugliosi writes in the letter to the Attorneys General. “I hope you will find the time to read it and that you will agree with its essential conclusion – that George W. Bush is guilty of murder for the deaths of over 4,000 American soldiers who have died fighting his war in Iraq.”
Bugliosi said he’s also meeting with a high profile California District Attorney to urge him to bring the case.
“I am going to meet here soon with a very prominent DA,” Bugliosi said. “I don’t think he is going to do it. But I do think he will give me some ideas as to who would be likely to do it. I’m going ask him to do it. My guess is he is not going to do it. But he attends DA conventions. And he may very well know someone. There may be a case where a DA or an AG lost a son over in Iraq.”
“I offer my services to help out in any way that they see fit,” Bugliosi said. “But I want to convey the thought that this is a serious thing. This is not a fanciful reverie. At my age, I don’t have time for fanciful reveries. If I had to guess what the probabilities are, my guess is that there is not a high probability of it. But I think there is a very substantial probability that George Bush, as a direct result of this book, will end up in an American courtroom being tried for murder. And the main reason that I say that is because of the great number of American prosecutors that I’ve established jurisdiction for.”
Bugliosi said that the homicide prosecution against Bush can be brought by the U.S. Attorney General, any of the U.S. Attorneys, any of the 50 state Attorneys General, or any of the hundreds of district attorneys – if a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq is from their districts.
Bugliosi says that even if the prosecution of Bush doesn’t come about for a number of years, he wants to plant in the President’s mind the idea that such a prosecution is possible.
“The least I can do is put that thought in his mind until he goes to his grave,” Bugliosi said. “That’s the least I can do for the thousands of American soldiers who came back in an aluminum box or came back as a jar of ashes. And the parents are told – don’t open the box, it is unviewable. They are getting back limbs and body parts. And this – I don’t want to use a cuss word here – this small, horrible human being – while young men who never had a chance to live out their dreams, being blown to pieces by roadside bombs – and this guy is having a ball dancing. I want to put the thought in his mind that in any time in the future, five years from now, ten years from now, some aide is going to tap him on the shoulder and say – Mr. President, there is this prosecutor, I don’t know how to pronounce his name, he’s up in Fargo, and he’s charging you with murder sir, and we are due for an arraignment next Wednesday in Fargo, sir.”
“Bush will never know whether that will happen. They went after (former Chilean strongman Augusto) Pinochet for murder 33 years later. I want to put that thought in Bush’s mind. This guy has been enjoying himself throughout this entire war. And the suffering and the horror and blood is unbelievable. And he has enjoyed himself throughout this whole thing.”
At the center of Bugliosi’s indictment of Bush is a October 7, 2002 speech to the nation in which Bush claims that Saddam Hussein was a great danger to this nation either by attacking us with his weapons of mass destruction, or giving these weapons to some terrorist group.
“And he said – the attack could happen on any given day – meaning the threat was imminent,” Bugliosi says.
“The only problem for George Bush – and if he were prosecuted, there is no way he could get around this – is that on October 1, 2002, six days earlier, the CIA sent George Bush its 2002 National Intelligence Estimate, a classified top secret report. Page eight clearly and unequivocally says that Saddam Hussein was not an imminent threat to the security of this country. In fact, the report says that Hussein would only use whatever weapons of mass destruction he had against us if he feared that America was about to attack him.”

The Bush Tax Cuts destroyed the American Economy

Opinion of the Editor 'James'

The Clinton administration left office while at the same time leaving the country in an envyable fiscal position. The U.S. had no deficit and was on track to have no debt at all. With that said, George W. became President and passed his enormous tax cuts in June of 2001. The tax cuts in 2001 were $1.3 trillion dollars, which esentially put the country in reverse and undid the successes of Bill Clinton with the economy in a very short period of time.
What people may not remember is that George W. introduced his tax cuts just three months before 9/11. Then because of 9/11, the United States went to war, and on a global scale. To show how morally and fiscally irresponsible George W. was, he cut taxes and then started a major war that still is in operation today. If he was a fiscally responsible and morale president, the sobering thing to do would be to resind those brand new tax cuts. If he would have said this at that time right after the start of the war, nobody would have blinked an eye. He didn't resind the tax, but instead continue to wage a very expense war at the same time.
The story gets even more rediculas at this point. In 2003 George W. decided to start another war simitaniously with the war already running in Afghanistan, this time in Iraq. Ironically, not only did George W. decide to wage two wars and not resind his tax cuts, but he created another $300 Billion dollar tax cut and signed the bill on May of 2003 just months after the war in Iraq commenced. He claimed it would help boost the economy. But why did the United States let the president act morally irresponsible by cutting taxes after starting yet another war? George W. didn't have the funds to pay for the war, but he took advantage of the American people and first tricked them that the second war in Iraq was necessary because Sadaam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, when it was later proven that they did not have any weapons of mass destruction. He convinced the country that U.S. tax cuts was more important than funding the war or protecting the American people both at home and abroad.
Was he out of touch with the problems that this country was now facing or what. It was ok that the Federal government continue to wage war without no longer having the funds to do it, but he doubled-down on his stupidness by creating more tax cuts that crippled the economy almost immediately. President George W is so proud of what he accomplished as far as his 'Bush Tax Cuts'. Then, he gets re-elected, because the country had blindfolds on. The country belived in President Bush and what he was doing in Afghanistan and Iraq, and none of these followers could or would ever had believed that this war would be waging even today. Now his party has the outright gaul to say that President Obama is the cause for why this country is in debt. What George W. and his pea-brain followers do not know is that the only way to reverse the damage George W. has created is to introduce new taxes. The sad thing is that if George W. would have resinded his 'Bush Tax Cuts' after the war he had started, we would not be in such a fiscal nightmare, and our national credit rating would still be AAAA.

Need I say more. If anyone believes that President Obama is at fault with his method of balancing the budget, just take one step back and realize about what was said here. Understand how the country went into debt in the first place and than unless taxes are collected, the U.S. debt will never go down. Yet, the conservative republicans believe that there should never be new taxes. All of the republican presidential candidates believe in that fact.

One thing is for sure. George W. proved himself time and time again that he hadn't a clue as to what was going on in the world, not even at home, as his two wars were much more important than health care and the well being of the American people. George W. continued to put American soldiers in harms way just for his pushing of soldiers in a war that still hasn't been won ten years later.

George W., the epitimy of failure as a president of the United States, and believes with his heart and soul that he was a great war time president, but only in his pea-brain mind could such a belief exist.

George W - A Disgusting President with NO SHAME

Opinion of the Editor 'James'

In a recent report, it says that George W. was troubled to make the decisions he had to make. That was evident when his secret service told him again that a second plane struck the world trade center. At that moment in time, he realized when White House Chief of Staff Andy Card's of Massachusetts whispered again in his ear while at the gradeschool in Florida. George W. was literally frozen with fear and disbelief. But for a long moment that seemed to be an eternity, George W. just sat there in front of the children, and did not react. Eventually he did make an announcement at the school about the planes flying into the world trade center and that he had to return to Washington D.C. immediately, even though his Secret Service refused to take him  immediately back to Washington. In mid-air they were diverted to a plane un-announced.
Then when George W. heard about the plane that turned around and started heading towards Washington which eventually crashed in Shanksville PA, he then ordered planes to intercept and shoot down if necessary any planes that did not respond with the orders to land as immediately as possible because orders were now given by the President that all planes must land immediately.
Today in a CNN report, he claims that he was very troubled to send military jets armed with missles to shoot down comercial aircraft with civilians on board just because the plane may pose a threat to the United States.
But this is the same man that initiated a war in Iraq, and is responsible for killing 4000+ American troops, and now George W's supporters want to blame our present President Barack Obama. What a sense of mis-justice. Everything George W. stood for was bad for the country. It is a wonder how George W. sleeps at night. Does he even feel any sense of remorse or regret for sending American troops into harms way to fight his war that shouldn't have started in the first place. He received permission from the Congress to attack Iraq and begin the hunt of Osama bin Laden on unjust grounds, stating that there were weapons of mass destruction, and there wasn't any to be found, not even a trace.
To be honest, I don't feel any safer now that I was then, so what good has his war on terror done. Yes it was done for a good cause, but at what price. For him, it's ANY price for freedom from the tyranny of Al-Qaeda even at the cost of more American lives, as if not enough people died on that fateful day on 9/11.
