U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News that images aired by Iranian state television do in fact show the secret U.S. drone that went down last week in eastern Iran.

It looks like a truck delivered it.
They will be flying over Washington.
That this could happen just leaves me speechless. You’d think at the very least they’d have some sort self-destruct mechanism on the thing. That our idiot of a president would not send in people to trash the thing shows how far our present government has dragged us down.
he was given 3 op choices, go get it, destroy it, or leave it .......... oh great one chose to give it to them
Straight from the factory.
Think Russians might have helped?:
We use the front grills from 1978 Camaros in our drones?
“The official said there are real fears the Iranians will share this technology with the Russians and the Chinese”
It was designed to land on its own if lost.
We delivered it by air.
I tell ya', THAT guy has amazing powers of observation...
It looks fake to me; the intake vent came off a 1955 Chrysler, and seems smaller in scale (to the folks standing around it) than other images of the craft that were previously leaked/posted. Regardless, Iran has their next PR coup, thanks to our President’s backdoor effort to kiss their backdoor ...
Obama......Heads I deny its ours....
.................Tails I ignore it
Senior advisor (to self) ...and your chances of re-election same as the coin landing on it's edge.
There are several different images floating around of a UAV designated RQ 170 ...
Either the Iranians have succeeded in placing a mole in the CIA/USAF groups which operate the UAVs, thereby obtaining flight plans, decrypted command codes, auto-destruct overrides, and so on - or the Russian/Chinese have done the same and supplied the info to the Iranians, else it is a huge disinformation campaign ...
How stupid these officials are. You never confirm or deny the loss of intel. At least you make your enemy hesitant.
Here’s hoping that the downed UAV was a plant with major intentional misdirections in it.
Or, perhaps it was Obama’s gift of a delivery system for Iranian WMDs intentionlly brought to earth fully intact. (Wonder what he’d get in exchange for that? “Impossible!” you say. Now that Fast and Furious proves the Govt will commit murders to injure the 2nd amendment, I’m comfortable believing they’ll give islamics weapons to use against Israel.)
The drone would be a great way to get more malware onto Iran computers. Load the drone with computer viruses and obsolete or deliberately misleading technology and accidentally crash it.
Even if that wasn’t the case, if you could start the rumor, hopefully the Iranians would get a little nervous about hooking their computers up to the thing.
You would think it would have a self destruct device for this type of circumstance...
Some presidents would not hesitate to destroy it right now.
