Was the destruction of the Death Star an inside job? This is the question posed by a new "truther" documentary entitled "LUKE'S CHANGE: AN INSIDE JOB." Directed by filmmaker Graham Putnam in the spirit of the 9/11 doc, "LOOSE CHANGE," this 7-minute film explores "some questionable events and circumstances leading up to the destruction of the Death Star, through the eyes of an amateur investigative journalist," with the primary focus being "the connections between the people who created and operated the Death Star and those responsible for destroying it."
