Today On Holden’s Obsession With [Saturday’s] Gaggle

Dana Peroxide Is AClueless Twerp Who Can’t Be Bothered To Keep Up With What’s Going On In The World

Q On the Strait of Hormuz incident, do you have a current understanding of the details of what happened — how close they got, what they dumped overboard, what they said when they said it — that you could run over for us?

MS. PERINO: No, I haven’t received any additional since we’ve been on the trip.

Q And the questions raised about exactly what happened?

MS. PERINO: No, I would refer you to the Pentagon for more. The Navy is doing the investigation.

Q But just to follow up on his question, does the President still believe that the incident was as serious as he described it on Monday when he —

MS. PERINO: Absolutely.

Q He’s not — because the reports seemed to suggest that maybe it was not as serious as the White House and others had indicated.

MS. PERINO: Whose reports? The Iranians’ reports? I mean, I’ve heard nothing different from what we have said, and I would just refer you to the military in terms if they found — if they have any more. But they released what they did to the media, which I — they did it in as timely a manner as they could so that they could help answer questions about it.

Q Was there a particular reason the President had such sharp words about it on Monday, given the fact that the details did not appear to — still seem murky?

MS. PERINO: I don’t know who is questioning the details. I know that the President got briefed on this by his National Security Advisor and from the Pentagon. He takes it as a very serious incident, and I’ve heard nothing to change that. I will be happy to check again, but —

Q Well, the fact that the video now is not clear that the statement that “we’re coming after you” was referring to these five boats; that’s a new fact that’s different than —

MS. PERINO: I have not heard that.

Q — a couple days ago.

MS. PERINO: Mike, as you know, I have been traveling. I try to read as much as I possibly can on these trips. I don’t — that’s the first I’ve heard of that, but —

Q There is some question, though, what the origin —

MS. PERINO: I saw the Iranians put out their version of a video, but beyond that, I haven’t heard any question —

Q It seems as there is some question about what the specific origin of the radio message was, whether it came from the boats, or could have come from somewhere else. There’s also some question about what exactly, if anything, was dumped overboard. Those were two of the things that were cited as the prime examples of what was threatening about their behavior. So, that’s what —

MS. PERINO: I’m happy to check, but in the meantime, refer you to the Pentagon.

Q And how close they came to the ships, as well.

MS. PERINO: Again, I’ll refer you to the Pentagon for now, but I’ll check.

  1. “I’ve heard nothing different from what we have said”
    And that’s really all you need to know.

  2. Gulf of Tonkin redux?
    I guess that Dana was the best they could get to sign on for press abuse with so little time left. So embarrassing all around. But then, look whom she is called to defend. Who could do it?
