Gordon Duguid’s daily press conferences at the State Department: Not really on the level of the 2002-vintage Rumsfeld Show of obscurantism and bluster and misinformation, but still entertainingly unhelpful enough to merit that inapt comparison.
QUESTION: Can you elaborate on Ambassador Holbrooke’s brief cordial encounter with the Iranian representative?
MR. DUGUID: No. (Laughter.)
QUESTION: Was it deliberate? Was it accidental?
MR. DUGUID: I was not there. I heard it at the same time as you did on the press conference that we were all listening to. So again, if we get some information on that, I’ll be happy to share that later. But I learned of it just as you did from the press conference.
