    It's difficult for me to believe that this drone, the one shown by the Iranians, is the one that went down over Iran. It's undamaged. Even if it had been shot down, it wouldn't have looked so undamaged. Of course on the subject of what the US should have done, once it went down: These drones need to have equipment that self-destructs them upon being shot down.

      If it was a cheap copy made by Iranians, the US would have known. Since they act so depressed, you can be sure of it that the images are real and the drone in question IS the missing drone. How it came down is a different matter, only realistic options are: It crashed in deep water, it landed automatically or the Iranians hacked it. Before ridiculing their intelligence, you should know that they're actually quite good at technical sciences; Don't judge their wits by the looks of those IR baboons.

    chris hufford stole the wind from my sails. The fact that this thing cost more than most families make in their lifetimes, is an insult that the pentagon, with all of it's funding couldn't figure out that the thing need a $20.00 piece of plastic explosives and a fail safe detonator with some sort of G.P.S. control and a button with someone's finger on it. doesn't seem to much to ask. a a taxpayer i'd gladley pay the difference! A government program all the way!!!!
