Follow Up With Your Local D.A. Now That They Have The Bugliosi Book On Prosecuting Dick & W


From We want you to know that we are gearing up for actions on many critical and substantive issues, health care, mass media issues, real food safety and more, and we will have much more on all these soon.

However, this week there is a special priority. We told you that another activist group was sending copies of the Vince Bugliosi Book, “The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder” to each and every local county district attorney in the country, nearly 3,000 books in the mail which were due to arrive at their destinations on or about Feb. 21, so they should be there by now.

To follow up we are asking all our participants to make it their mission to confirm with your local prosecutor that they got their copy of the book, and make sure to tell them that Vince Bugliosi himself wrote them a cover letter with the book, offering his help in any way, and highlighting the essentials of the case. There is a link to the actual text of this cover letter on the page below, where you can also instantly look up the contact info for your own local D.A.

Remember, unless we demand and achieve true accountability, there is absolutely no meaningful constraint on the potential war criminals of the future. So please read the Bugliosi cover letter yourself, and the words will come to you so you will know exactly what to say when you ask your own prosecutor to accept Vince’s help in bring the criminals from the last White House to real justice. And if you have not requested one of the new “Convict Dick & W” caps already, you can get yours from the same page above.

At the same time, we are also keeping the pressure on the appointment of real special prosecutor at the federal level. We will not settle for a so-called “truth” commission that’s just an immunity fest for the worst of international criminals. The following is the text of a joint letter drafted and released by our activist friends at After Downing Street, which many major progressive groups have already signed on to.

*Statement on Prosecution of Former High Officials *

We urge Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a non-partisan independent Special Counsel to immediately commence a prosecutorial investigation into the most serious alleged crimes of former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Richard B. Cheney, the attorneys formerly employed by the Department of Justice whose memos sought to justify torture, and other former top officials of the Bush Administration.

Our laws, and treaties that under Article VI of our Constitution are the supreme law of the land, require the prosecution of crimes that strong evidence suggests these individuals have committed. Both the former president and the former vice president have confessed to authorizing a torture procedure that is illegal under our law and treaty obligations. The former president has confessed to violating the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

We see no need for these prosecutions to be extraordinarily lengthy or costly, and no need to wait for the recommendations of a panel or “truth” commission when substantial evidence of the crimes is already in the public domain. We believe the most effective investigation can be conducted by a prosecutor, and we believe such an investigation should begin immediately.
