Best Way to Begin Federal Prosecutions of Bush/Cheney Is Through Collateral State Actions

By In Essays

After weeks and weeks of unbelievable work, we have completed compiling a database of the current contact information for every state district attorney, for every county in the country. And we have put it all together into an easy one click lookup function to help organize contacting your nearest state

prosecutor, to call on them to step up to the plate, to stand up for justice and accountability, by prosecuting George W. Bush and Dick Cheney for their crimes.

In particular, renowned former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi has laid out a compelling case for charging both Bush and Cheney with the premeditated murder of American service men and women, for starting a war with Iraq on patently false pretenses. By using this new lookup page you can instantly get the mailing address, phone, fax, and in many cases also the email of your local prosecutor. This action is so critical we have dedicated our entire main site homepage to it. Local Prosecutor Lookup: http://www.peaceteam.net

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not asking anyone to file a “formal” criminal complaint yourself. Common sense tells us that state prosecutors will only act, in the exercise of their own discretion, if they believe there is a non-frivolous case to bring. But by speaking out, we can let them know there is community support for them to do so.

There are nearly 3,000 county-level state prosecutors in the country. And these are often very politically sensitive elected positions, where citizen pressure can have huge impact. Indeed, if you look at current members of Congress, a large number of them started out as district attorneys. Who among these 3,000 has the courage to take on the urgency of pressing these historic charges, and perhaps then replace some of the partially inflated punching bags that many members of Congress have allowed themselves to become?

To hear the Sunday morning Washington chucklehead pundits talk about it, whether to prosecute war crimes or not (as if it were optional) is an inside the beltway political decision. Oh really? Well maybe our United States of America is a little bit bigger than their little beltway.

Attorney General Eric Holder is already coming under enormous pressure from rabidly lawless Republicans, for just simply declaring what any first year law student would have to say to keep from getting flunked, that torture is a CRIME. And if Bush and Cheney ordered torture, as they have brazenly admitted on TV, they MUST be prosecuted. End of story.

But we cannot only rely on getting an honest attorney general who will do his duty (though we must have that too), nor can we rely much on the mostly whiny weenies in Congress to finally put together an investigation with teeth. No!! The critical move now is to drum up collateral actions at the state level, as counseled by Bugliosi, and that will help force the hands of everyone else.

Imagine what it would be like if we found just one crusading state prosecutor to respond to the call of destiny. Imagine what it would be like if a dozen or more suddenly sprang into action, because of our many letters, and phone calls, and faxes and emails. We can open up a whole new third front, and keep it open. Local Prosecutor Lookup: http://www.peaceteam.net

So after you use the local prosecutor lookup, you can also request one of the new “Convict Dick & W” caps from the same page, complete with a little embroidered cowboy hat on the “W”. Yes, a tiny cowboy hat for a very small man, the Cowboy from Connecticut, our first presidential felon to be, George Bush. It’s perfect.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
