The administration held this secret until this Wednesday. It happened late last week.
So they just declassify something that was classified less than a week later and the day after the election? B.S. I worked in the U.S. Army with a high security classification many years ago (42yrs.), and classifications of information are NOT rescinded that quickly.
I suspect the info was just held back for political purposes.
Was the miss intentional as a warning or an "act of war?" Take a stand Obama and stop being the spineless man you have always been.
Iranian pilots flying sophisticated Russian fighters can't hit a drone flying at 130 mph? Isn't that a little like saying they couldn't hit a duck in a swimming pool with a shot gun?
They didn't plan on shooting it down in the first place. The whole thing was to see what Barry would do about it, which we (and they) already know would be nothing.
This happened on the First and we are just now finding out about it..This is insane..I guess we could be taken over by another country and we won't find out until they knock on the door..The Media is treasonous as far as I'm concerned..They hid it for the election..Oh yeah it wouldn't of mattered, the voters don't consider an act of war important unless it gets in the way of their sending our taxpayer dollars home to their homeland..
2 Iranian Fighter pilots failed to shoot down an un-armed robot?
Sounds more like an act of stupidity> I say nuke 'em anyway
I know how it should be handled... but since we don't have a President... it makes no difference.
This crap will only get worse from here.
Get our men and women out of the Middle East and let them have their Sharian hell all to themselves. BUT stop buying their oil and selling them arms. Let them stew in their own juices.
NO @#&*! Sharia in the USA.
Four more years of this bullcrap. We aren't going to make it without a war with Iran. Or should I say...a war that Obama will sit back and watch, maybe even help the Iranians.
Above video says the Pentagon through the State Department has 'protested' but hasn't heard anything back from Tehran... sounds like a sick joke!
Yeah Iran is really shaking in their boots at thought of another four years of them...I heard Valorie is in negotiations with them, they are still trying to figure out where the biggest population of republicans are, so they can gift it to them, to leave U.S. alone..
...OH WELL , women have their contraception , Colorado has legalized WEED , Michelle Obama still has her plane , Barack still has his plane and his mother in law still has 3 square meals at the White House OH WELL and it is still George W. Bush who is at fault ,OH WELL AMERICA CAN GO TO HELL for this is the PLAN of MARXIST PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA OH WELL just 1533 days left in President Barack HUSSEIN Obama's reign as 'KING OF THE FREE WORLD' (hopefully unless he declares himself President for life OH WELL )."
AMERICA , Elections do have consequences !
Well, let's put an Ambassador out in international waters and something will probably happen then...sorry folks, angry madwoman syndrome today.
"Two Iranian fighter jets fired at US drone in international airspace last week"
And they missed? They missed? Those are some awesome top notch pilots no?
I just read that Atty General Holder is not sure if he will stay another term. I guess he's trying to figure out how to "fast and furiously" get out of office before it all catches up to him. He's not sure if his "work is done here" or not.
Not to worry. Valerie Jarrett is holding secret talks with the Iranians...you know SHE has our backs!
Why was this news held back until after the election?
And I just now saw that Obama is going on a tour of Southeast Asia.
Is not there work to do here?
Nah....he had to sleep in this morning!
Yeah, four more years of travel at our expense. I don't expect it to end anytime soon, either. Has the Royal Family announced their plans for Christmas yet? Hawaii? Spain? Africa? Indonesia? Let's see maybe something more exotic, somewhere they have never been before, I got one, how about the moon? Oh, shucks, they shut down the space system so that won't work. Anyway, we will be at home, another year of no vacation. Woe is me!
After all, who in that White House would really want to get tough with the Iranians? Then after they get their own nuclear bomb they will be happy to "negotiate" with us. Only Obama won't really care that they have the bomb. He'll just see it as a "distraction," until we lose a western city or an Israeli city to one.
Has the White House made the apology video yet?
"Dear Mr. Ahmadinejad, please accept our deepest apology for flying our drone over legal airspace and causing you the loss of two very expensive missiles. Be advised, it was Bush's fault and the check is in the mail for the missiles (/bows deeply)."
On a serious note, however, if Iran can't hit a 'hovering' drone, then I'm not too worried about our boys getting in an airwar with them. It will be Top Gun all over again.
(cue music to 'Highway to the Danger Zone').
They shoot about as well as they can say "squirrel". If you have never seen it, look up on youtube "persians can't say squirrel". It's hilarious. In WW2 they found suspected German spies by asking them to say it (I heard) because they can't either.
We are wide open for attack with this misadministration. Just a matter of time before something much worse than Benghazi happens.
And, it's likely that Valerie Jarrett is the Iranian Ambassador to the White HOuse. TReason
