OK, I found these doing research for my project.

These are the people in government we're dealing with...

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.

Feb. 12, 2002, Department of Defense news briefing

You're going to be told lots of things.
You get told things every day that don't happen.
It doesn't seem to bother people, they don't
It's printed in the press.
The world thinks all these things happen.
They never happened.
Everyone's so eager to get the story
Before in fact the story's there
That the world is constantly being fed
Things that haven't happened.
All I can tell you is,
It hasn't happened.
It's going to happen.

I think what you'll find,
I think what you'll find is,
Whatever it is we do substantively,
There will be near-perfect clarity
As to what it is.
And it will be known,
And it will be known to the Congress,
And it will be known to you,
Probably before we decide it,
But it will be known.

A Confession
Once in a while,
I'm standing here, doing something.
And I think,
"What in the world am I doing here?"
It's a big surprise.

May 16, 2001, interview with the New York Times

No surprise here!!!

And if your sister is your aunt and your mother marries your uncle, you'd be your own grandpa.

I know what you mean. All they like to do is take us in circles until we get so confused that we give up and just agree with whatever they say.

"We don't know the unknown. We don't have the clarity to perceive what is unknown, we don't know what is going to happen. In fact we know feck all"
