Report: Iran says it can control the drone
By the CNN Wire Staff
updated 5:29 AM EST, Tue December 13, 2011

(CNN) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday his country can "control" the U.S. drone aircraft that Iran claims it recently brought down, Venezuelan state TV reported.

"There are people here who can control this spy plane, surely we can analyze this plane too," Ahmadinejad told VTV. "The systems of Iran are as advanced as this system."

President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States has asked Iran to return the drone aircraft that Iran claims it recently brought down in Iranian territory.

"We've asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said.

Will Iran share stealth tech with China? Ahmadinejad comments to VTV seemed to suggest that Iran did not have plans to return the aircraft.

The drone should have self-destructed or been obliterated by a cluster-bomb — preferably when the Iranian recovery team was gathered around the wreck site. Instead Obama meekly asks for the drone’s return?! Lovely!

From the pics, the drone looked undamaged.

0bama delivered it to them, giftwrapped,

just as Clinton gave China the ability to drop a nuke anywhere in the world - an ability they didn’t have before.

The Iranian talks big, but frankly, I think he’s short of know how. I mean, you just can’t expect a bunch of ignorant peons to understand a machine like some of our boys.

That thing is as phoney as a $3 dollar bill. They have never shown the underside of it. That’s the giveaway.

As soon as they find the magic carpet and djinn inside.

And now, Ahmadinejad is calling for an apology, rubbing the whole issue in Obama's face.

Thanks for making America look foolish and weak, Barack.

The best that could be said is that he's an incompetent wuss. The worst is that he is taking active measures to ensure that our self-identified enemies obtain our military technology.

At least they’re just holding a piece of equipment “hostage” and not a bunch of embassy employees like in Barky’s mentor’s time.

If it were fake, why would Obama be asking, "pretty please", to get it back?
