Someone please explain this. Why do the Jedi would not suspect some thing is afoul when the clones being used for the Republic army were made using Jango Fett, who the Jedi know tried to assasinate Padme and kill Obi Wan (several times!!). That alone should have alerted them to some double-dealing or evil lurking. Then they find out the clones were ordered by Sifo-Dyas, a dead jedi, who the Kaminoans think is the Master of all Jedi. Clearly a lie. And let's not forget that the Sith are also present still. And just happpen to re-appear around the same time Sio-Dyas was killed. Then on top of all this, the Clones are now ready at the same time that Count Dooku and his CIS just happen to be ready to fight a war with all of their newly-made droids. And it just happens to be the same time as a vote is taking place for a Military Creation Act. It is also known that Dooku was using the dark side while he was still in the order. AND it's also known that the source of the clones, Kamino, was removed by "someone" from the Jedi archives. All of this makes it very obvious that there is some grand scheme going on. The Jedi should have figured this out easily. Obi Wan sees the clones for himself and fights Jango. And now he suspects nothing when the clones just happen to be ready for the Jedi to take?? And not to mention that Dooku tells him that the Republic is being run by Dark lords of the Sith (now I would not expect Obi Wan to take Dooku at his word, but once you see in the gladiator arena "VIP" box, Jango--clone template and Dooku, droid leader, standing together, it should be clear that someone is playing both sides.) I had all these questions before seeing the movie and was hoping that the film would resolve this. The Jedi not need to use their force snesitivity to know what it is going on. They just need common sense. I just don't see why Yoda would ever use the clones or at least know that someone in the Republic created them 10 years in advance specifically for this war, which would mean that it's all phony. Everyone is in on it except the Jedi. 2) Why is Shmi kept alive for the Tuskens for a month? How does she live? Was she fed and given water? How is it that hse happens to die at the exact moment Anakin rolls in?
