Today on Holden’s Obsession with the Gaggle

From Holden:

Stephen “Yellow Cake” Hadley was on gaggle duty in Scottie’s place today, and the gagglers want to know more about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the new Iranian president Chimpy’s belicose words helped elect.

Q Steve, has the United States been able to determine whether Iran’s new President was indeed one of the captors of the 52 Americans who were held for 444 days?

MR. HADLEY: We have seen reports of that. I understand there’s some photographs. We obviously are looking into it. At this point, no determination has been raised. It obviously raises some questions, and we’re looking into that.


Q But when you talk about potential consequences, would he, if he is confirmed to have been one of the original hostage takers, then be in violation of Geneva Conventions or international laws of some kind?

Well, er –uh… um, violating of the Geneva Conventions and international laws does not disqualify you from leading a country, does it?
