PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Health officials are investigating an outbreak of illnesses at a Philadelphia hotel that recently played host to about 200 Republican leaders, including President Bush.

At least 69 guests at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel -- all attending a business conference -- went to the hospital last week when a mystery bug caused dizziness and vomiting. More fell ill, but did not seek medical attention.

In addition, two people at a GOP retreat to discuss party policy January 29-31 -- a member of House Speaker Dennis Hastert's staff and a second staff member's spouse -- became ill the day after checking out, an aide to the Illinois Republican said Tuesday. Neither was hospitalized.

Could Terrorist have known he would be staying there and planted a little "surprise" that would not be known until now ?

Sounds more like something minor like a small 24 hour flu. I would think more into it if in fact the people involved were still sick, but according to the article that is not the case.

Seems like nothing serious if you ask me.

probably something similar to the Norwalk virus.

There have been similar cases in Philly in the past, it turned out to be Legionnaires' Disease.

It appears that if it was a terrorist action the terrorist failed to get his target.

If, in fact, it was a terrorist, why would they try to give Dubya the flu?? Kinda lame...
