Why didn't the Jedi inform the Senate that Obi-Wan had found a Clone Army on Kamino before granting Chancellor Palpatine emergency powers for no reason at all?Garrett Atkins (talk) 16:04, February 8, 2013 (UTC)
A couple of points here...
The Military Creation Act had already been under discussion by the Senate for two years before emergency powers came up
The Jedi didn't grant Palps emergency powers, the Senate voted for that
They didn't vote Palps emergency powers for nothing, they voted to extend him emergency powers in dealing with the rapidly-spiralling-out-of-control Separatist Crisis
Kenobi only learned of the clone army a very short time before finding out about the droid army on Geonosis—which itself prompted the emergency powers vote
