Rumsfeld: NATO Threatened by 'Unknown Unknowns'

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld baffled
NATO allies and journalists alike on Thursday by saying the
greatest threats to Western civilization may lurk in "unknown
unknowns."

Rumsfeld was defending Washington's view that the United States
and its allies could not wait for "absolute proof" before taking
action against groups and states suspected of acquiring weapons
of mass destruction.

"The message is that there are no knowns. There are things we
know that we know. There are known unknowns, that is to say
there are things we now know we don't know. But there are also
unknown unknowns -- things we do not know we don't know."
