    Laura Bush book suggests poison at German summit

    France24 - Laura Bush book suggests poison at German summit: report

    AFP - Former first lady Laura Bush writes in her forthcoming autobiography that she and her husband George W. Bush may have been poisoned when they became ill at a summit in Germany in 2007, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

    Writing in her book "Spoken from the Heart," due to be released in May, Laura Bush says that the US Secret Service probed whether the presidential delegation may have been poisoned at the G8 summit.

    George W. Bush spent part of the summit bedridden.

    Doctors concluded that they had contracted a virus, she said, according to the Times report.

    However "we never learned if any other delegations became ill, or if ours, mysteriously, was the only one," Laura Bush wrote.
    Dear Mrs Bush,

    May I be so bold as to remind you that Germany did not take part in the assassination of foreign leaders such as Saddam Hussein?

    May I be so bold once again as to remind you that the last time a POTUS was killed, it did not happen in Europe but down in Texas?

    Have a nice retirement.

    Yours trully.

    Ah revisionist history.

    Saddam was tried in a court of law and hanged.

    Pick up a dictionary.

    So your logic is that presidents only get assassinated in Texas?

    Step away from the wine and your 32 hour work week.

    "The U.S. Military's Assassination Problem," by David Case. Mother Jones, April 2008

    "Since 1976, when it was revealed that the cia had made repeated attempts on the life of Fidel Castro, every American president has issued an executive order banning political assassinations. This ban, however, never applied to leaders with whom the United States is at war, and so the military has launched strikes against Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic..."

    Also, are you denying that the only time a POTUS was killed, it happened in Texas, USA?

    PS: Some of us enjoy a 35 hour work week btw. Educate yourself. I recommend you stay away from Texas textbooks...

    And this has what to do with whether or not someone tried to poison them? Since it hasn't happened before, it can't be possible?

    he doesn't have to. 2/3 presidents that have been assissnated in the US were killed in D.C. (see lincoln & garfield).

    there was also an attempt on reagan in D.C.

    I did not know, thank you. But still, all of these assassinations happened on US soil, not in Europe....

    Which does not mean that an assassination could not take place in a foreign country.

    History just shows that we do not try to kill your leaders, even when we dislike them, period. That is a practice you do on your own

    Of course not, but come on, you have to admit that you are more enclined to do it than us, as your history shows.
