I_AM_IRON_MAN: Yeah, he said the Jedi injured him. With what, a chemical burn? I mean, his injuries seemed pretty unusual. We don't know what the general GFFA'er knows about the Jedi. Tarkin calls the Force a religion, and Han describes it as a mystical energyfield. I guess the Jedi are known for having mysterious powers, making it likely for them to believe that Palpatine looked the way he did because the Jedi unleashed those powers on him. I also think that the Jedi may have been popular during the Clone Wars, but I still think that Palpatine was even more popular. If he would say the Jedi turned against him, and backs this up with his scarred and deformed face, the people are likely to believe him.
