And the award goes to....! "US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld has talked his way into the gobbledegook hall of fame. He got the Plain English campaign's 'Foot In Mouth' award for a statement on the problem of 'unknown unknowns.' He was quoted as saying: 'Reports that say that 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.'" But the consequences of the Bush administration's policies in Iraq are far from laughable. I offer following link to a movie about the U.S. use of depleted uranium in weaponry with two caveats: 1) if you don't have broadband, it will take a long while to download [943K]; and, 2) the images are immensely disturbing. Fair warning.
