The question is in the title, but let me clarify and also expose my reasons for asking. I know that the Council decided, after all, to allow Anakin to be trained - the reasoning for which is not explained, but which we can all conjecture upon; he's become too visible to be left out of the Jedi having such a high Force sensitivity; the confirmation of the survival of the Sith (also a factor in the previous reason) endorses Qui-Gon's opinion of Anakin as the Chosen One etc. But, given that they know how.."dangerous" the boy's training would be why would they leave that training in the hands of a newly knighted Obi-Wan? Would someone who's fears and attachments they so clearly sensed not have been better being trained by a more mature Jedi, such as Yoda or Windu? Especially taking into account Qui-Gon's words to the Council "He still has much to learn of the living Force......". This is a young Jedi who is still learning. I know there is the argument that Jedi are always learning (or should be) but that doesn't cover the fact that Obi-Wan has only just become a Knight. Its not as if there was some teacher-padawan bond there to be broken, except for maybe his association with Qui-Gon. So, why did the Jedi allow the young and "dangerous" Anakin to be trained by Obi-Wan?
