But there is a little problem.
So much important she is for Konoha, and they send a kid to protect/kill/liquidate whatever her.
If she was a Senju, she don't need protection because they are not weak at all.
Even in death they are powerful, they are like steroids for ninja. And again why send a kid to protect a so important thing?
And for Obito...
Maybe he teleportet all the ANBU somewere else, or that's all an illusion, or Kishi is drawing half drunk/half slept.
