The Fog of War quotes

  • Robert McNamara: One of the lessons I learnt early on, was never say never... never, never, never... never say never. And secondly, never answer the question that is asked of you. Answer the question that you wished that was asked of you and quite frankly I follow that rule, it's a really good rule.

  • Robert McNamara: If we can't persuade nations with comparable values of the merits of our cause, we'd better reexamine our reasoning.
