WATCH: The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder Now a Movie

George W. Bush took this country to war in Iraq under false pretenses. Thousands of people have died as a result: American armed forces, Iraqis, aid workers, and others.

After reading Vincent Bugliosi’s The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, journalist-turned-lawyer Charlotte Dennett was moved to act. She ran for State Attorney General of Vermont, enlisting Bugliosi as her special prosecutor in the event that she won. She lost the race, but found a movement: the movement to hold Bush accountable for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Now, Bugliosi’s bestselling book is a movie. You can watch the 9-minute trailer below. (h/t AfterDowningStreet.org)

DETROIT, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ — THE PROSECUTION OF GEORGE W. BUSH FOR MURDER
is based on the book “The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder”by Vincent
Bugliosi (Vanguard Press), a New York Times hardcover bestseller.

Mr. Bugliosi and GWB, LLC formed a production company to produce the
documentary of his book. The film is Directed by David J. Burke, Produced by
Kip and Kern Konwiser and Executive Produced by Peter Miller.

IT IS SCHEDULED FOR RELEASE IN FEBRUARY, 2010.

TODAY, NAFTC STUDIOS PRESENTS AN APPROX. 9 MINUTE EXTENDED TRAILER
ATwww.indiegogo.com/bush Please be kind enough to forward to friends &
colleagues.

In the spirit of grassroots political campaigns, THE PROSECUTION OF GEORGE W.
BUSH FOR MURDER team is starting this week on www.indiegogo.com/bush to raise
money from the public in small donations to help market this historic film.

The film is not only about the monumental crime committed by George W. Bush
and members of his administration in taking America to war in Iraq under false
pretenses (as Vince Bugliosi makes a strong case for in his book and the
movie). It is equally about deterring future Presidents and their
administrations from knowingly going to war on a lie, because a Bush
prosecution will tell them that the law will be enforced and there will be
legal consequences. No one is above the law.
