There it is...not exactly the expected reaction...but that's a bit of a cliffhanger. What the heck happens now?...and why did he let him go?
Sasuke seems to be playing into everyone's hands. Oro, Itachi, and perhaps...even Madara. Who knows what'll gnaw inside him...maybe even bringing him to joining akatsuki.

Danzo and the Village Elders as the next Enemy in his List is what it sounds like.
this brings me back when I played Final Fantasy 7.
You know how Sephiroth went into Cloud's head and showed him what really happened in the past. and Cloud didn't want to believe it? This feels like the same situation to me. I don't know who to believe anymore.
I have a feeling that Madara is either leaving out something very important or completly lying.
I don't think Madara is lying, but he is plotting something. I think he basically wants to use Sasuke as a tool and told him everything, so that he can get the thought of revenge or something. Also Itachi must have not wanted Madara to tell Sasuke because he probably figured that he would put Sasuke into a mind game after or during the truth and use him for some unknown plan.
Madara may or may not be lying about not summoning the Kyuubi (but I think he is lying because Kyuubi told Sasuke that he had Madara's evil aura, so Kyuubi must have met Madara at some time), but he did admit that he hated his clan and helped Itachi in the massacre. So, if Sasuke is thinking at all clearly, he won't want to join Madara's side against Konoha, and, if he's thinking a little more clearly, he won't blame all the Konoha shinobi for what happened either. Among them, only Danzou knew and approved the massacre, and he is the only one still alive who knows. But Sasuke hasn't shown much intelligence except when it comes to combat tactics. Naruto is the one with moral clarity, which is a valuable kind of intelligence in itself.
Observation: Itachi killed his lover
corollary: his lover was an Uchiha
conclusion: The Uchiha clan really was that messed up
Didn't notice that since I came to this thread from the link on the forum front page, sorry.

edit: Was there ever anything directly contradicting the "Itachi is Jiraiya's spy" angle? Unless Jiraiya got the info from a secondary source, I think that there must have been some evidence against this (Jiraiya didn't know about Amaterasu the first time he saw it), I haven't bothered to really look it up though.
