Knowing the system better than anyone else, pesky details and metrics interfere with implementation. Why afford people an opportunity to criticize when what was said was not done, or when articulated results aren’t achieved? Been there, done that on healthcare. Whatever happens is the plan, the results were the objective, and the details and metrics are those of the military. Presidential! .
