The Half-apology (technical admission-non-admission)

  1. a quasi-psuedo-admission

Examples:

  • when your wife asks if you're having an affair, you can "Half-apologize" by saying, "We only kissed once," even if you did more. Technically, you apologized for the affair (as far as she knows), but didn't admit to the full extent of the involvement.
  • when asked if America has ever tortured anyone, you can "Half-apologize" by saying, "Only three detainees have been waterboarded, plus waterboarding might not be illegal, necessarily."
  • As a brief disclaimer: "We'll, I'm sure I've done something wrong at some point."
