I caught the news headline as I woke up this morning, that Iran claims it downed a US drone.
Here's another breaking headline, this time from the WaPo.
While this incident is being investigated, I'm inclined to believe it was the drone we lost contact with (mechanical failure?) and the Iranians are merely nabbing the credit.
One thing is certain: The Iranians will continue to make a public scene over this. Even if we prove they didn't shoot it down, they'll respond by saying this is another of the Great Satan's lies.
