His Satanic Majesty Donald Rumsfeld was well versed in the use of artfully vague language to bamboozle a nation into an advanced state of paranoia and fear. His nonsensical rubbish is best summed up in the following classic which preempted the American invasion of Iraq.

“There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.”

Couldn’t have put it better myself, my old cocker. Even if I was talking complete bollocks.
