Green Thumb sends a link to NBC News which reports that last week, Iranians tried to shoot down an unarmed US drone with their SU-25 Frog Foot jets sixteen miles off of the Iranian coast. Well, they missed.
Asked why the incident is just being revealed now — more than one week after the incident and just two days after the presidential election — Little said that the Pentagon does not talk about classified missions. He said that the information had been leaked to the media so he is acknowledging it.
“There is absolutely no precedent” for an incident like this, he said.
Yeah, classified missions. Right. As soon as someone gets axed by a drone, there’s a press release. I guess that the election and the fact that the White House just last weekend was telling us how Iran is on the verge of collapse and calling for negotiations over the sanctions has nothing to do with it.
Didn’t one of our trolls just tell us last weekend how the Iran problem is nearly solved thanks to Obama? I guess if they were on the ropes, they wouldn’t be shooting at our aircraft and put any negotiations in jeopardy.
