Iran Mocks Obama Who ‘Begged' for Drone
Israel National News ^ | November 13, 2011 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 12/13/2011 11:55:18 AM PST by sevinufnine

Iran is having a field day over the latest downed Drone, saying that President Barack Obama “begs to give him back his toy plane.”

“Obama is hoping that the Iranian government is in a Christmas mood because he has asked Tehran to send him his Christmas present. Iran mocks Obama who ‘begged' for [his] Drone back,” chided the semi-official Fars News Agency.

"We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said following a meeting at the White House with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

"Given Iran's behavior to date, we do not expect them to comply," U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said. President Obama reportedly turned down proposals to try to bomb the drone or retrieve it, fearing such an act would be considered an “act of war.”

Here’s an idea Mr. President. Blow it out of the sky first time it’s seen in the air.

This act alone is enough to get rid of Obamas sorry a$$.

Obama not only does huge geopolitical damage but also humiliates us once more.

What an embarrassment. I say we destroy it with a bunker buster bomb. If we know where it is, that is.

Yup. A laughingstock if one isn’t shedding tears for the nation same time.

One poster on the article who lives in Israel actually posted that Obama is a muslem spy and for us to wake up.

I hate to admit it but my first reaction when I heard of 0bama’s asking was to laugh out loud.

If they say no, will he? Will he? (Oh, he is so scary) Ask again?

Maybe he can give them the secret sauce for enriching Uranium for weapons and they will trade..??..

Or, since they want a nuclear bomb so bad, send one to where the drone is. The Mullah’s can have a front row seat at their first detonation.

Well, certain groups such as the Mexican drug cartels, illegal aliens, Al Qaida, Muslem radicals...and it’s not that they love us now, but love we don’t have a Bush in office or they’d not have such free run.

I think the issue is more that the ChiComs will get the technology and build their own. It’s what they do — what was their last original idea, fireworks? They probably bought or stole that idea too.

Obama should fly his buddies from the OWS movement over there. They can pitch tents and stink up the place.

Even Jimmy Carter would not have acted this pathetically.

The Iranians have it, they are taking it apart and analyzing all the technology behind it. If they send it back it will only be more mockery because it will be like the recon plane the Chinese returned to Bush--in pieces.

An unsettling possibility that needs to be considered is that obama deliberately let the Iranians have it rather than destroy it, and the "act of war" rubbish is just that.

The US Gov't certainly knew where it was, at least when it landed. It should have been bombed on the spot. No publicity, no claims, no acknowledgement.

I’m not sure I agree.

Didn’t Carter spend more than a year asking the same country for our PEOPLE back while killing some of our soldiers in his inept “rescue attempt”?

Thanks liberal America for sending this horn-honking unicycle-riding inexperienced bozo clown to the highest office in the land. Thanks for nothing.

Why do you insult clowns like that?

“And this drone did not have a self destruct system because...?”

1) It was unarmed; and
2) This was a planned transfer of technology to Hussein’s buddies.

Okay the time for nice talk is over. Give these Iranians an ultimatum. Surrender the drone or we send Mooch over their with a couple of 100 human shields and try to beat the record "the most people doing jumping jacks in a muslim country" Curent record: zero.

“Dumb and Dumber”. The only thing dumber than not destroying it immediately is asking for it back.

I know that it isn’t likely since obambi is involved, but have we considered the possibility of a Trojan horse? Think Stuxnet-like virus loaded drone.

“And this drone did not have a self destruct system because...?”

My thoughts exactly. I’m thinking it very, well may have one, but Bozo is too scared to use it.

Also thinking this could have been an inside job. Someone landed it FOR Iran either by taking control from the inside, or by providing technical information enabling them to overtake the craft and land it themselves.

Hell, there isn’t a scratch on the thing!

lets add it up... so he has given the Pakistanis and the Chinese a state of the art Chinook helicopter, the Iranians cutting edge drone technology..... what more can he do in the name of leveling the playing field to threaten the safety and security of America?

And how long will stupid American majority allow this to go on????

Shame the drone is not covered with deadly chemicals or nasty diseases.

Maybe it has a homing beacon?

Then again Mr. SCOAMF is in-charge so you're probably right.

It's such a horrible feeling to be embarrassed and ashamed of our President.

I've had strong disagreements with some past Presidents but never felt they were embarrassing us in the world community.

Obama’s notion of statesmanship and diplomacy wouldn’t work on a playground at a kindergarten. He thinks national leaders will be as malleable as the white liberals he’s more accustomed to shmoozing in Chicago. It would be laughable if he wasn’t bumbling and fumbling the world into armed conflict.

This posted story-theory appears to be bogus ...


I discovered the following information at Free Republic last night (2011-12-17) that appears to factually based ...


Regards,

Patton-at-Bastogne, aerospace mechanical engineer, work included Inertial Navigation System (INS) for both the F-35 (JSF) and the PAC III (Patriot) system ...


=========================================


Tale of RQ-170 Hijack In Doubt as Told in Tehran


Purported Iranian engineering specialists have been taking liberties with the laws of physics in their descriptions of an electronic hijacking of the RQ-170 unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, say U.S. analyst.


Holes in the account start with the fact that it took days for the Iranians to discover the lost aircraft. In fact, intelligence officials at one point thought the Iranians might simply never stumble across the crash site because it was in such a remote and uninhabited part of northeastern Iran.


Electronic attack of the Sentinel is “certainly possible, but there’s no indication that they even knew it had crashed in Iran for some time,” says a veteran black-projects manager.


That scenario is validated by an aerospace industry ISR specialist, who agreed that “if they were not aware [of the Sentinel’s presence in Iran for days], then there is no reason to believe they had any semblance of control.”


And then there are technical issues that make a hijacking, as described by the Iranians, unlikely.


“Among the reasons to doubt the claim that GPS jamming had anything to do with the loss of the RQ-170 is a simple overlooked fact,” says a third U.S. analyst. “GPS is not the primary navigation sensor for the RQ-170 or for most other air vehicles. The vehicle gets its flight path orders from an inertial navigation system, which is essentially unjammable unless you want to monkey with the local gravitational field.


The GPS updates the INS and cancels its drift. So, even a full GPS blackout would simply cause the vehicle to be a bit less accurate,” he adds.


“If the GPS was ‘spoofed’ with a fake signal — and even JDAMs have anti-spoofing GPS receivers today, so that might be difficult — any abrupt change in the GPS reading would cause the Kalman filters in the GPS/INS to conclude that the GPS was malfunctioning and cut it out of the loop,” he says.


The continuing discussion of why the RQ-170 went down was renewed by a Christian Science Monitor interview with Iranian military technologists who say they were able to “cut off communications links” to the Sentinel using knowledge gathered from the inspection of at least three other U.S.-operated, non-stealthy, unmanned aerial systems (UAS).


The trick, they say, was to scramble the GPS coordinates that guided the aircraft to make it think it was landing at its home base in Afghanistan, and only imprecision in the altitude data caused the Sentinel to land with its wheels up.


The report went on to quote an Iranian engineer as saying the “electronic ambush” was accomplished “by putting noise [jamming] on the communications, you force the bird into autopilot. This is where the bird loses its brain.”
