Collected wisdom of Rumsfeld

I thought it was funny - didn't know where to post it.



'I would not say that the future is necessarily less
predictable than the past. I think the past was not
predictable when it started.'


'We do know of certain knowledge that he [Osama Bin Laden]
is either in Afghanistan , or in some other country, or dead.'


'We know where [Saddam's weapons of mass destruction] are.
They're in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad and east, west,
south and north somewhat.'


'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.'


'Freedom's untidy, and free people are free to make mistakes
and commit crimes and do bad things... Stuff happens.'


'I believe what I said yesterday. I don't know what I said,
but I know what I think, and, well, I assume it's what I
said.'


'Needless to say, the President is correct. Whatever it was he
said.'


'Well, um, you know, something's neither good nor bad but
thinking makes it so, I suppose, as Shakespeare said.'


'I'm not into this detail stuff. I'm more concepty.'


'If I know the answer I'll tell you the answer, and if I
don't, I'll just respond, cleverly.'


'I don't do quagmires.'


'It's not my business to do intelligent work.'

I dont think she hates America, just she dislikes rumsfeld. Plus when you speak of America, you are talking about Canada, Mexico, Guatemala,, Peru, etc.. So you should Say The United States.

One of my favourites from Bush is that:

We've also got to understand, in order to power the power-generatig plants that are now being built in California, we need more energy.

Well, Lila, it is true, Osama is in Afghanistan, or in some other country, or dead. Why pick on Rumsfield for telling the truth???

What, you don't get that? It's pretty obvious. Let me explain it to you in this chart:

Yes, and this disproves the "Chris Martin invented everything theory" as well, so it can help everyone a little bit.
