(Anakin Skywalkar chasing female Clawdite bounty hunter with Obi-Wan Kenobi)

ANAKIN SKYWALKER – I think she’s a changeling…
(They catch her and as she was about to reveal to them her partner’s name, Fett killed her with a saberdart which eventually lead Obi-Wan Kenobi to Kamino)

DEXTER JETTSTER (examining saberdart) – This baby belongs to them cloners. What you got here is a Kamino saberdart.
(Kenobi found Kamino)

OBI-WAN KENOBI – There it is, R4. Right, where it should be. Our missing planet, Kamino.  obi van kanobi and clone army 2

(Kenobi welcomed by Taun We, a Kaminoan, as if they had been expecting his visit for some time. Prime Minister Lama Su then informed the Jedi of the progress of the clone army ordered by Sifo-Dyas some ten years ago.)

LAMA SU: Please tell your Master Sifo-Dyas that we have every confidence his order will be met on time and in full. He is well, I hope.

OBI-WAN: I’m sorry? Master ???

LAMA SU: Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. He’s still a leading member of the Jedi Council, is he not?

OBI-WAN: Master Sifo-Dyas was killed almost ten years ago.

LAMA SU: Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. But I’m sure he would have been proud of the army we’ve built for him.

OBI-WAN: The army?

LAMA SU: Yes, a clone army. And, I must say, one of the finest we’ve ever created.

OBI-WAN: Tell me, Prime Minister, when my Master first contacted you about the army, did he say who it was for?

LAMA SU: Of course he did. This army is for the Republic.

To all the CPOs take this as a learning; beware of the dark side creeping in your organization. If at all Master Sifo-Dyas had used an automated P2P system; the clone army would have not come as a surprise to the Republic. The republic would have gained better control over “maverick buying” of cloned army. Thus, not letting it go under the control of the Dark side.

Let the P2P Jedi restore the balance. May the force be with you!!
