I’m one of those adamant lefties and Rumsfeld haters, but I have to agree with you here. We might be better off if our politicians were allowed to admit they don’t know everything. Nor do any of us.


To say that something is an “unknown unknown” is not unusual. I hear other engineers and military guys refer to the “unk-unks” all the time. Not too hard a concept: we don’t know what we don’t know.
