But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know."-- Donald Rumsfeld, February 12, 2002

"During the early stages of the Iraq War, members of the United States Army and the CIA, under the direct orders of the then Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld, committed a series of human rights violations and war crimes, known as the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse."--Sholem Stein
