Laura Bush Poisoning Attempt?

Laura Bush, in her new book, alleges that someone tried to poison her and her husband, then-President George W. Bush, in 2007.

The attempted poisoning happened in Germany in 2007, when the bushes and numerous other staff needed medical attention after getting sick under mysterious circumstances. They were all successfully treated by doctors in Germany and fully recovered, but Laura reports that poisoning was suspected, and it was even investigated but no firm conclusion was found.

Said Laura, "Nearly a dozen members of our delegation were stricken, even George, who started to feel sick during an early morning staff briefing, one of our military aides had difficulty walking and a White House staffer lost all hearing in one ear. Exceedingly alarmed, the Secret Service went on full alert, combing the resort for potential poisons. George felt so ill that he met with Sarkozy and did not even stand up to greet him... We never learned if any other delegations became ill, or if ours, mysteriously, was the only one."

Laura Bush is suggesting she, her husband, and several aides were poisoned during a 2007 visit to Germany for the G8 summit - one of several new details in the former first lady's forthcoming memoir, "Spoken for the Heart." Due to hit bookshelves May 4 but purchased by CNN at a Washington-area bookstore, Mrs. Bush says she and former President George W. Bush became mysteriously sick on the Germany trip to such a degree that the president became bedridden. According to Mrs. Bush, doctors and the Secret Service investigated the possibility a poisoning had occurred but were unable to make a definitive conclusion.
