Still and Yet






If you were a big fan of the series HOMELAND, you would know that the CIA's target du jour was the infamous terrorist Abu Nasir. The COUNTERTERRORISM UNIT assigned to the mission had just thwarted Nasir's attack but was unable to locate the mastermind.  

CIA Deputy Director David Estes sums up the report of the sting operation 

We still don\t have Abu Nasir yet
                                             
Is this an example of ....

  • double negatives?
  • emphasis?
  • inconclusive action?
  • intention?
  • certainty of achieving the task soon?
