The Unknown

The things we know. What follows are the exact words of the Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, as taken from the official transcripts of the US Department of Defense. Watch the Youtube video of him saying it live.

“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.”
