(Newser) – A Seattle coffee merchant has sent 2,200 copies of Vincent Bugliosi’s bestselling The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder to DAs whose districts have lost residents to the Iraq war, the Seattle Times reports. The damning book “was the first time in 8 years I had seen anyone lay out a clear blueprint of what we could do because of what Bush has done,” said Bob Alexander.

The book argues that local authorities can hold Bush responsible for Iraq war dead because he lied about the reason for invading. While Bugliosi is in awe of Alexander’s dedication to the cause, prosecutors aren’t biting. “We can't prosecute someone for a murder that occurs in California under Washington state law,” said a local DA. "How can we prosecute for someone that was killed in Iraq?"
