Foreign Minister Says Assassination Attempt Possible
W2 Steps Up Security on the President (September 1, 2013)
WWN - President William "Will" Farr was injured in an apparent fall from his bunk bed. He has not issued a statement concerning the incident. Rumors have been flying around the capital of West Who for days. Some say that this was no less than an assassination attempt on the President's life!
What is know is that the Vice President and his wife were accompanying the President on a fact finding mission to Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Vice President confirmed that while investigating international trade opportunities the presidential envoy attended a Green Bay Packers football game with their American hosts. Later that night, the President was injured in a fall or was it a possible attack. He was treated for wounds to the head, face and leg. But, the question being asked is was it an innocent fall or something more diabolical?
Foreign Minister, Michael Farr, said this about the incident. "I was notified of the situation and I had some of our intelligence officers immediately assigned to the case. We know that there are counties out there who really resent the freedoms and liberty that we have here in West Who and there are people who would love to see our country brought to its knees. That's why I believe it is possible that the incident involving the President may have in fact been a sophisticated assassination attempt gone bad. We will take whatever measures that are needed to protect the President and we will get to the bottom of this." The Foreign Minister has informed the nation that "W2" the West Who Spy Agency will continue to investigate this incident.
