Errmm...except where the very absence of evidence is the issue at hand. It's not an argument of 'logic' but addressing that in terms of it being a plot hole the very absence is the issue. I don't understand your point. All I've said is that the lack of any mention leaves whatever anyone wants to place there as legitimate as anything anyone else decides to put there. There is as much 'evidence' that there was an investigation as that there wasn't - ie there is no evidence one way or the other. What 'foregone conclusion' does that suggest? Really? That's it? Could you expand upon that, perhaps explain in what way you disagree? Let me help you out; We hear Obi-Wan say that he believed Sifo-Dyas was already dead by the time the army was ordered - and neither Jedi Master contradicts that; we then hear that Jango says he's never heard of Sifo-Dyas and that he was approached (to be the template of the clone army) by a man named Tyrranus - who we discover is Dooku. In what way does the dialogue not lead to the conclusion that Dooku was actually behind the clone army? This comes back to the same question you have been asked a number of times, and which you have ignored; what do you propose the viewer is supposed to take from that dialogue? Hence why I questioned how it came about that it went under the radar. Do I need to explain this? If the Jedi knew of it then....durrhh(slaps forehead and crosses eyes), how stupid must they be. So, we have a contingency order which no-one knows about (ie under the radar...) in an army for the Republic..... was there no due dilligence? Did the Kaminoans not pass that information on? None of it explained.
