LISTEN: The People v. Bush Author Charlotte Dennett on The Jeff Farias Show

No matter what President Obama says about looking forward and not backward (code for “we’re not going to prosecute my predecessor the war criminal”), there is a national grassroots people’s movement out there that’s gaining momentum. Attorney Charlotte Dennett has been involved since reading Vincent Bugliosi’s The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, even running for the office of State Attorney General of Vermont on a promise to hold the former president accountable for his actions.

The path to justice can be a lonely, often discouraging, road, but Dennett urges us to take heart.

From The Jeff Farias Show:

JF: Well, and I guess that’s part of what the book, your book, touches on. It’s not only taking Bugliosi’s work a step further, but talking about the fact that there is a real people’s movement out there. People are concerned about this, and maybe we shouldn’t be so discouraged and thinking that these bastards are going to get away with it.

CD: Well, the worst thing, the worst thing is to be discouraged. That’s exactly what they want. And, you know, now, I think now ol’ Rove is doing us a favor. He’s come out with a book. In fact it comes out tomorrow. And he’s just repeating the lies. He’s saying that Bush didn’t take us to war on a lie. In fact, all the people that have been involved in orchestrating this war, you know, they’re all being questioned, or they’re going on their book tours. But, you know, there’s the whole investigation going on in England right now. But you had Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister, and he lied, you know, he said that we went to war because Saddam was a threat. This is a lie. I mean, this is the total, this, this is the essence of actually the murder charge, and Bugliosi was the first person who really articulated it. That Bush knew—knew—that he was taking our troops to war on false pretenses.
