I am currently watching Naruto Shippuden and just watched the episode where in the past,
Orochimaru said to Kabuto that he is going to create the Village Hidden by Sound.
My question is, if the people from Konoha (Hidden Leaf Village) know that
the Sound Village is Orochimaru's village,
then why did they invite ninjas from the Sound to compete in the Chunin exams? Was it not common knowledge that
Sound Village was Orochimaru's village?
If this will be answered further in the Shippuden then I will watch it, but I don't see why it would be.
