TRIAL OF GEORGE W. BUSH
A Novel
Terry Jastow

Following the worst terrorist attacks in American history on September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush pledged to bring those responsible to justice, especially the mastermind behind it all, Osama bin Laden. After failing to capture Bin Laden in Afghanistan, George W. Bush shifted his attention and that of his country to Saddam Hussein and Iraq, neither of which had anything to do with the 9/11 attacks (as history has proven). Bush, Jr., wanted a war in Iraq, and with the help of others in his administration, he succeeded in waging one regardless of its price in human lives or expense to his country's treasury. George W. Bush's Iraq War lasted eight and a half years, killed tens of thousands of people, and cost the United States trillions of dollars.
In Terry Jastrow's new novel, THE TRIAL OF GEORGE W. BUSH, past evil deeds are exposed and reckoned with in a most unexpected way. At a time when America's political leadership has alienated itself from the rest of the world, the scales of justice respond in a trial at the International Criminal Court in which former President George W. Bush is accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity. This fascinating trial brings together eyewitness testimony from a former Secretary of State, the Commander of US Central Command who oversaw military operations, an American counter-terrorism expert, and a female Iraqi blogger, who reads from the blogs she wrote while Bush's war was destroying her country.
As the trial ends after weeks of contentious statements and nonstop coverage by an overzealous media, a captivated worldwide public awaits the determination of Bush's fate. Will he be found guilty or not? The surprising verdict is revealed in Terry Jastrow's new novel, THE TRIAL OF GEORGE W. BUSH.
