Yes, I Cited Rummy Approvingly
In my latest CIC piece, I build on latest week's theme at CIC on deception in IR. I had fun with it, as I basically used Rummy's classic quote of known knowns to show that uncertainty and lying can co-exist. That Rummy was pointing out something important, that there is much we don't know, but he was doing it mendaciously. Anyhow, take a look at the post (I even sneaked in a link to a robot chicken bit on "A Certain Point of View"). I did not link to this classic Sam Jackson/Boomtown clip. Have to draw the line at NSFW although some would argue that Rummy is NSFW.
