Former prosecutor Elizabeth de la Vega details the case against Bush, et al.
Mark Bebawi welcomes Elizabeth de la Vega back, to discuss her new book, just out this month:
In it, she has drafted a hypothetical indictment of President Bush and his senior aides, and presents the case for prewar intelligence fraud to a grand jury, just as if it were an actual case, using the evidence already in the public record. She builds a case that President Bush and top members of his administration engaged in a conspiracy to deceive the American public and Congress into supporting the war.
A former federal prosecutor, she retired last year after serving more than 20 years as a federal prosecutor in Minneapolis and San Jose. During her tenure, she was a member of the Organized Crime Strike Force and Chief of the San Jose Branch of the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California. Her pieces have appeared in The Nation, the L.A. Times, Salon, and Mother Jones.
