durbnpoisn: Dog Welder: Obligatory:UNCOMFORTABLE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ATTACK: Was it an inside job?1) Why were a handful of rebel fighters able to penetrate the defenses of a battle station that had the capability of destroying an entire planet and the defenses to ward off several fleets of battle ships?Because the Empire didn't consider a single-man starfighter to be any sort of a threat. That is why they didn't have a tighter defense.Besides, the ability to destroy an entire planet was harnessed completely in it's superweapon, which would be useless against a single fighter.2) Why did Grand Moff Tarkin refuse to deploy the station's large fleet of TIE Fighters until it was too late? Was he acting on orders from somebody to not shoot down the rebel attack force? If so, who, and why?Who says they had they largest fleet of Tie Fighters? Even the 2nd Death Star didn't deploy any. All those fighters came from the fleet of Star Destroyers.In any event, Vader DID have the idea to go out and "destroy them ship to ship". Which they succeeded in doing with the exception of 2 XWings and 1 YWing. Tarkin also had no reason to believe that there was any sort of danger. He was expecting to fire one shot, and go for a light lunch.3) Why was the rebel pilot who supposedly destroyed the Death Star reported to be on the Death Star days, maybe hours, prior to its destruction? Why was he allowed to escape, and why were several individuals dressed in Stormtrooper uniforms seen helping him?It's pretty well known that they were allowed to escape so the Empire could track the escaping ship to the Rebel base.4) Why has there not been an investigation into allegations that Darth Vader, the second-ranking member of the Imperial Government, is in fact the father of the pilot who allegedly destroyed the Death Star?There are no such allegations. The Emperor was the only one around who was aware of Vader's true identity. Well, him, a couple of Jedi, one of which was dead, and Luk ...

trappedspirit: There's no space to launch a full rebuttal of the conspiracy theorists. (It took 1,632 pages for Vincent Bugliosi to do that in his 2007 book http://www.amazon.com/dp/0393045250/?tag=slatmaga-20" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(102, 0, 51); text-decoration: none; font-family: sl-ApresBold; font-size: 15px; line-height: 27px;">Reclaiming History.)If it takes 1,632 pages to supposedly disprove something, it's probably true.

Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: Rapmaster2000: That's why you never win on arguing the merits of a conspiracy theory. To even attempt so, just proves that you are one of The Sheeple who doesn't see the powerful people controlling precisely every aspect of our lives.I think that's the wrong attitude to take, and, ironically, just shows your desire to feel superior to people who have different ideas than you..
