Unknown Unknowns

It depends on what “Is” is? That use to be my favorite political statement and I thought it would never be topped. Well, I was wrong;

April 3, 2003

“There are no knowns. There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns – that is to say, there are things that we now know we don’t know but there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don’t know. So when we do the best we can and we pull all this information together, and we then say well that’s basically what we see as the situation, that is really only the known knowns and the known unknowns. And each year we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns.”

Donald Rumsfeld
Secretary of Defense

PS: “knowns” is not a real English word….
