New Book: United States v. George W. Bush et al

A 20+ year prosecutor with the US Attorney’s Office does what she knows best in the face of gross criminal activity--she convenes a grand jury

United States
George W. Bush et al

in which Elizabeth de la Vega lays out a brilliant case against George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld,
Condoleeza Rice, and Colin Powell, for tricking the nation into war, or, in legal terms,
conspiracy to defraud the United States.

“On the basis of the evidence presented by former prosecutor Elizabeth de la
Vega, I'm convinced that George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and their
fellow "indictees" are fully entitled to a fair and honest trial—indeed,
several fair and honest trials—by juries of their peers.”
—Daniel Ellsberg
Former State and Defense Department official who revealed
the Pentagon Papers

“In her truly engrossing study, former Federal prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega conducts a hypothetical but technically impeccable grand jury indictment. She marshals the evidence to show that Bush et al deliberately misinformed the people about the reasons for our war against Iraq. It is much more powerful than the 9/11 report. A tour de force.”
--Chalmers Johnson
Author of Blowback and The Sorrows of Empire

“[A] front-row seat for the evidence of violent crimes by high officials of the Bush administration.”
--Ray McGovern
Retired CIA Analyst

"Any American patriot who would like to see a Grand Jury challenge this Administration's blitzkrieg against our constitution will relish Elizabeth de la Vega's book THE UNITED STATES V. GEORGE W. BUSH ET AL. Machiavelli believed fraud was laudable and glorious in matters of war. In her book; Ms. de la Vega invites us into the courtroom to consider the indictment of our modern day Machiavellis and the fraud they've perpetrated."
--Edward Asner

“It shines a brilliant beam of light into the fog of mainstream news and politics. If you're tired of partisan rhetoric and media evasions, read "United States v. George W. Bush et al." Elizabeth de la Vega puts you in the jury room—and gives you the evidence you need to decide whether Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and Powell worked as a team to defraud the USA while dragging the country into the invasion of Iraq. Apologists for the war have tried to evade and deny the facts that can be found in "United States v. George W. Bush et al." This meticulous book will make the evasions and denials more difficult.”
--Norman Solomon
Author of War Made Easy:
How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death

“De la Vega has accomplished an amazing feat with this singularly triumphant presentation of the intersection between political fantasy and legal reality. Reading the delightfully logical and clearheaded United States v. George W. Bush, et al is both incredibly sobering, and yet strangely hopeful. Real American patriots can only wish the United States godspeed in this case, and this brief is destined to be well studied by principals in all three branches of American government, as well as by those who serve as the Fourth Estate.”
—Karen Kwiatkowski

“What a great book. In the form of a fictional grand jury looking into criminal charges of conspiracy and fraud committed by the Bush administration concerning the war on Iraq, this book contains the documented details of public comments and secret actions of President Bush and his senior advisors in the year prior to the war. The Department of Justice led by Bush-intimate Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez will never bring such a case to the federal courts, but the United States Congress could lift sections of this well-researched case and use them as elements of articles of impeachment of George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and Condeleezza Rice. All impeachment would take is courage of members of Congress and a true love for our country, instead of loyalty to administration benefactors.”
—Ann Wright
Retired US Army Reserve Colonel (29 years) and US diplomat who resigned in
March, 2003 in opposition to the war on Iraq.
