If these guys were on the witness stand, under oath, in a trial and asked the question -
"Is the Governing Body the leaders of Jehovah's Witnesses?" and answered "No. Jehovah is the leader. We are merely the ones who take the lead in directing Jehovah's Witnesses as Jehovah's Holy Spirit directs us to."
These clowns would be brought up on charges of aggravated perjury.
It is a total political "double speak" answer. "We're not the leaders. Jehovah is the leader. He tells us what to tell you. If you disobey us you are disobeying Jehovah and therefor need to be shunned."
