It's all about the person in charge

Jen Lemen wrote a post about her concern over the senate paper that critiques the intelligence used to justify Bush's decision to go to war in/with Iraq.

Her post ends with the following:

we can't turn our brains off on this one. it makes you wonder if there are any other quiet hunches lurking in the bush administration that can be translated into public policy without any real foundation, open public debate or even common sense? i really don't want to find out.

I think this translates into any administration, whether it's a government, a homeowner's association, or a church. How many "quiet hunches" lurk inside the minds of pastors, leadership team members, deacons, elders, whomevers... that become group policy without any forum for those who will be affected to learn about the decisions that will be made for them or to provide any input?
