I was rewatching the Uchiha massacre (I was showing my friend how Itachi got down) when I noticed how Itachi reacted to Sasuke crying out "Brother stop what are you doing!?" (or something like that.) To me it seemed as if Itachi was acting out his wishes subconsciously. Itachi snapped back into reality after hearing Sasuke yelling at him. To make this short, I think Itachi has been brainwashed and is asked to do ludacrous shit via subliminal triggers. I think the AL has a type of hold or jutsu he imposes on Itachi similar to how Sasori placed one on Kabuto. This would also explain how AL just peered at Itachi and told him to give up naruto to Sasori. Ok, so maybe AL is just strong enough to bitch Itachi into doing his bidding but certainly shouldn't rule this out. What do you guys think? If this has been done I apologize in advance and I guess the mods throw this thread out.
