Trailer for The Prosecution of an American President.
George W. Bush said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. They didn't. Bush said Saddam was an imminent threat to our national security. He wasn't. W. convinced us Iraq was involved in 9/11. It wasn't. And yet America, still reeling from the September 11th attacks, launched a full scale invasion of Iraq. The destruction was unimaginable: over 4,400 American soldiers, dead. Over a hundred thousand innocent Iraqis, dead. Millions displaced. A nation destroyed. Cost to U.S. taxpayers...almost a trillion dollars.
When we didn't find anything they simply said the intelligence was bad. But what if the intelligence wasn't bad? What if the entire Iraq war was based on a calculated lie? It would make every American soldier's death a murder.
This electrifying film documents the efforts of Vincent Bugliosi, one of our nation's foremost prosecutors, as he meticulously presents his case that former president George W. Bush is guilty of murder for deliberately taking our nation to war in Iraq under false pretenses. Based on Bugliosi's New York Times bestseller, the movie discloses shocking hidden details of how Bush and his people systematically lied to Congress AND the country.
To honor the noble heritage of America itself. Vincent Bugliosi presents a legal blueprint for the prosecution of a President. He shows incontrovertible evidence that Bush, Cheney, Rice, et al committed a monumental crime under our constitution and the laws of this land. He leads us through a legal understanding of what is needed to bring a formal prosecution...setting the stage for the biggest and most important trial in U.S. history.
