Plain English Compaign: Annual Awards

The Plain English Campaign has bestowed this years Foot In Mouth Award to United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld for comments in a press briefing:

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

One thing is certian, I know I don't know what this means.
