Episode details

Author, Steven Markoff, joins us to discuss his book “The Case Against George W. Bush,” where he dispassionately lays out the three major war crimes the former president committed by invading Iraq. Plus, David, Ralph, and Steve discuss the Biden infrastructure plan.

Steven Markoff is the founder of several public service educational websites, including procon.org. He is the author of “The Case Against George W. Bush.”

“There are a lot of people that look at George [W.] Bush since his presidency and they say ‘Gee, you know, he’s been a pretty good guy. He’s really been helpful. He’s been more of an elder statesman. And we should give him a pass because he’s been a nice guy.’ Well, if you have a neighbor that murders three people, and after the murder he brings in stray dogs, and he’s nice to people, and he brings you a cake when you move in? Still a murderer. And… I believe that one of the reasons that Donald Trump was able to attack our democracy in the way he did, is that he looked back at George W. Bush and said to himself ‘Look at all the terrible things that guy did, and he’s never had to pay for it.’”

Steven Markoff, author of The Case Against George W. Bush

“When I finished the book, I offered the book to everybody that I had quoted, which was… around ninety authors. I offered it to Condoleezza Rice, I offered it to Dick Cheney, I offered it to the [George W.] Bush [Presidential] Library. I haven’t heard from one person about the book.”

Steven Markoff, author of The Case Against George W. Bush

“Normally, when you write an advocacy paper or book, there’s a lot of facts on the other side… But in all of the books that we went through– and we went through 130 published books, plus government reports, plus other reports– there is really no data that counters what I’ve quoted in the book.”

“Censorship comes in many forms. One of [them] is a colossal moral indifference to official crimes at the highest levels of our government.”
