We Are About To Hear A Lot About The "I" Word-"US v George W. Bush et al"
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 06:48 PM by kpete
Impeachment off WHOSE table?? (with a Libby sideboard)

..............

We are, however, about to be hearing a lot about the "I" word when US v. George W. Bush et al., a new book by Elizabeth de la Vega on precisely that subject, comes out next month. The author gave me the final draft last month, and has now agreed to be interviewed for Cannonfire next week! This may be her first interview on the book circuit (I'll have to check on that), but it will be fun and stimulating, regardless, as she is both


A little about the book first, and then a little about her.

The book actually takes you into the ditches of the prosecutor's office, gathers evidence, reviews it and the relevant laws, and then presents the compelling package to a hypothetical grand jury. And the case carefully places Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, and Powell and their collective "lying us into war" in its legal framework, a conspiracy to defraud the United States.

......But neither the facts presented in this case nor the laws asserted to have been broken are in the least bit hypothetical; they are disturbingly real, and we know them to be true, from the Downing Street Memoes to the misleading use of aluminum tubes and African yellowcake. It is an exciting must-read, and I'm downright honored to know the author.
