Donald Rumsfeld, poeta

rumsfeld Encuentro este "poema" de Donald Rumsfeld en un blog de poesía. En realidad, se trata de algo que dijo el secretario del Departmento de Defensa en una conferencia de prensa el 12 de febrero del 2002. Un dato curioso que encontré también en ese blog: Rumsfeld fue, a la vez, el secretario de defensa más joven (con 43 años, durante la corta presidencia de Gerald Ford) y el más viejo (74, durante la administración de George W. Bush).

 

The Unknown

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.
