    Kakuzu and Hidan were heading towards Konoha

    He was supposed to be a " spy " who worked for Konoha's sake , and he's priority was to fulfill his role and protect Konohagakure .
    Kakuzu and Hidan's endeavor was abvious , capturing the Kyuubi's Jinchuuriki , which can not be done w/o killing many shinobi from Konohagakure and terrorizing the village .

    This happened , moments after he was just helping the Akatsuki kill Yugito


    Not too long after he helped the Akatsuki capture and kill the Kazekage Gaara .

    The "Village is off limits" was a bullshit made for itachis story
    If obito really wanted itachi dead itachi would have been dead.

    Because if he tried Obito would've had him slaughtered by Pain, or someone else.

    The Leaf being off limits is BS, and clearly a retcon that makes no sense.

    But they very nearly did. In fact, if Naruto showed up a minute later, Kakashi and Team Asuma would all be dead. Also, if Kakuzu didn't randomly switch his tactics, he would've easily killed Naruto.

    The real reason is because it's a retcon, like most things involving Itachi, plain and simple.

    Itachi fans logic
    "He told kisame to take masters out" But itachi already gai coming
    "Itachi asked sasuke to kill his best friend" But itachi knew sasuke wouldnot kill his friend
    "He did not do anything against the akatsuki " Because he was a spy
    What are his feats as a spy :troll

    We have many more
    Itachi did not want to . . . . . .
    Itachi was a. . . . .

    If those villages knew precisely where Akatsuki would be and which members would be there, it would be obvious that there was a spy; Tobi would instantly know who that spy is and so would Zetsu thus Pain would too. At that instant, I'm sure Itachi's "Konoha off limits" and "leave Sasuke alone" agreements would be revoked; Itachi would not want that.

    Basically it would not be in Itachi's best interests if the two characters stronger than him knew he was a mole that was actively leaking info.

    You are talking as if Obito does not already know. :lmao

    -----
    itachi's character was simply a mess and Kishi did not really know what he wants to do with him exactly. Everything related to his character seems to be just "on the spot" type of thing. That's why there are an enormous amount of things that just don't add up whether it's related to the role of being a spy, or his age, his "knowledge" has always proven wrong one way or the other, his actions and statements...etc etc. Nothing really adds up when it comes to his character.

    I guess I will same the long stuff for when his poll comes out tho. :catwalk

    Retcon. Fair enough he was a spy but he was a terrible spy and when you look at the story, he wouldn't have accomplished anything.

    He wouldn't have been able to stop Akatsuki if they wanted to obliterate Konoha as a whole group or heck if Pain wanted to go himself even when Itachi was alive, Itachi wouldn't be able to do anything either. I always thought as long as Pain was there Itachi's mission was useless.

    "Is Sasuke in the village, No, so fuck them."

    Now for more serious thought, the only thing that Itachi care was Sasuke and even then for example That Sasuke had die against Deidare we would be in a depression and then die alone full of regret.

    That implies Tobi didn't already know, which he obviously did. He knew everything about Itachi's plan, minus the last ditch kill attempt. Zetsu did too.

    Read the whole post: if Konoha and Komu knew precisely which members were coming to them then Tobi will instantly know who the mole was. For added measure, there'd be Zetsu knowing.

    Put another way: Tobi would instantly realise it was Itachi leaking information to the nations. If he didn't know then he'd need to do some digging and not instantly realise.

    It wasn't a retcon, because we already had hints that support the notion of his being "good".
    So it makes me wonder what the fuck Kishi is thinking at times. :mikebatman

    That's just it though, Tobi knew Itachi was a mole, there were no other moles. He had no digging to do, he simply kept Itachi around as an asset, since he was so valuable.

    I literally said he wouldn't need to do any digging.

    Why didn't Itachi do anything? He knew anything he did would expose him instantly, more than just to Tobi.

    He was a spy but it seemed that he never shared intel nor did he ever intend to take measures to do so. Seems like the spy thing was a last minute thing, tbh. Unless his info was going to Danzo?

    You've fixed on one point and ignored the whole point.
    Tobi knew, but then Zetsu will know if Itachi began going out of his way to leak info and if Zetsu knew he'd notify Pain... the leader.

    Except, Zetsu worked for Obito, not Pain. Meaning he'd do nothing of the sort. So, that point is moot.

    yeah, even Itachi partner Kisame was a dumb spy too.

    And why should Itachi leak Information to anybody, if it was to Danzo, he would say fuck them Let them fail so i could be an Hokage, Tsunade , So could people say, "You know this guy that kill his entire family, and torture his younger brother that make deflect from us, yeah he is told us that the Akatsuki is coming to Konoha.":sauceskully

    How is Obito going to know anyway? The Akatsuki were killed in their first try to attack more or less.
    And it's not like he ever cared to see why or how that happened.

    Heck, even besides the information, itachi had the chance to kill Oro and yet he did not do shit. You could argue Kakuzu was more beneficial to Konoha than itachi ever did. :lmao

    Kishi was trying desperately to glorify itachi, but in reality he did absolutely nothing. :catdude

    This. Itachi was a failure in all walks of life. He even admits as much, he only succeeded after dying and returning as a zombie. I'm sorry, but that hardly counts.
