In February and March 2003, Mr. Bonifaz served as lead counsel for a coalition of US soldiers, parents of US soldiers, and Members of Congress (led by Representatives Conyers and Kucinich) in a federal lawsuit challenging the authority of President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld to launch a war against Iraq absent a congressional declaration of war or equivalent action. His book, Warrior-King: The Case for Impeaching George W. Bush (NationBooks-NY, January 2004, foreword by Rep. John Conyers, Jr.), is accounting of that case and its meaning for the United States Constitution.
Mr. Bonifaz is a 1999 recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship and a 1992 graduate of Harvard Law School. For further information on Warrior-King, including a video interview of Mr. Bonifaz, see www.ireadnet.com.
