He’s restating the “Johari Window”, a psychological technique for describing the gap in understanding between oneself and others. It’s taught in many management classes, including the one I attended.


By dividing knowledge into two axes, things one knows on one, and collective awareness on the other, all outcomes get covered.

It’s just a lot more of a mouthful when described instead of shown as a simple chart.

Poor Rummy, he rightly gets a lot of stick but I think he did a pretty good job of verbalizing the concept.

I am sure Rumsfeld participated in creating all the deceptions so to him everything is Known Knowns. This is why he would not answer when asked if there were unknown unknowns about Iraq.

Rumsfeld would have also known where the 2.3 trillion dollars went that he announced on 9/10/21, (22) 9/10/2001: Rumsfeld says $2.3 TRILLION Missing from Pentagon – YouTube. What a dirt bag this guy was.
