Photo of the Day – Darth Sidious Lives in Afghanistan

So, as I’m going through some photos from the field, I come across this one and had to do an immediate double take. As a huge Star Wars fan geek, I immediately recognized what Senior Airman Grovert Fuentes-Contreras had really captured on film: Darth Sidious, the Sith Lord that Emperor Palpatine would keep hidden from the Jedi Council.

An elder woman (yes it’s a woman) stares into the camera during a key leader engagement in Arghandab. I guess she could also possibly be confused with Darth Maul…You decide.
