Yushchenko fell ill Sept. 6, a day after having late-night food and drinks with the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, among other people. Yushchenko's wife, Kateryna Chumachenko, said she noticed a strange taste on his lips when she kissed him that night.
"I tasted some medicine on his breath, on his lips," she said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "And I asked him about it. He brushed it away, saying there is nothing."
I wonder what effect this news story will have on people who have suspected that Arafat was poisoned.
