    Apparently, Donald Rumsfeld has just been awarded the "Foot in Mouth award" by the Plain English Society. Here's his winning quote

    Reports that say something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know

    Classic :D
    And this man is in charge of one of the largest armies in the world :?

    The answer to that is a known unkown to me, however before you asked it was an unknown unknown you know.
