You don't know what you don't know...

Okay...those who have followed Serpo (or intel) closely have heard the phrase "You don't know what you don't know" pretty often.

Well apparently someone within Intel gave Donald Rumsfeld a crash lesson on the concept. Check out how he tried to explain it to reporters. Dear lord - the man puts even Bill Ryan to shame.

"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. "

Donald Rumsfeld
