Considering the fact that Kabuto needed to be trained first & didn't graduate from the academy till he was ten I'd say he didn't start doing spy missions until he was at least ten.
Age has everything to do with this considering the fact that Rin could have been as young as five when she was sent on this so called mission. Pretty much dwarfs every other young age mentioned in the entire manga. Rin simply doesn't seem capable of doing this.
This is Kishi isn't an excuse. It quite simply doesn't fit into anything we've been shown of Rin. The girl was shown getting pumped for intel by rock ninja. Pretty piss poor spy if she can't even hold secrets.
If she wasn't in control of herself & threatened the safety of Konoha yes he would kill her. The only reason Kakashi even fainted was because his MS awakened. Kakashi had no reason to kill himself reject.
No I am not comparing her to Itachi..come on son why would I even "try" to do that......Rin isn't much in the manga...her existence was solely for Kakashi's character..you are going too far in the double agent scenario...I am not saying she was sent from age five or six...btw where are you getting this age from?? I never said five or six...she could of been a spy for a minute...what I am saying either way.. torture, brainwashing...she would still betray her comrades..she would still give up the intel...they could of placed a genjutsu on her and she could of continued to live and work alongside Konoah nins unaware of the jutsu...actively being a double agent...similar to what Sasori did with Kabuto....
