(CNN) —President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States has asked Iran to return a U.S. 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 in a news conference, alongside Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
A top Iranian military official previously vowed not to return the unmanned American stealth plane that it says it has. “No nation welcomes other countries’ spy drones in its territory, and no one sends back the spying equipment and its information back to the country of origin,” said Gen. Hossein Salami, deputy commander of Iran’s military, the semi-official Fars news agency reported Sunday. LINK
Are you kidding? Seriously? Did he say “We ASKED FOR IT BACK”? He doesn’t even have the balls to DEMAND it back. Not that the Iranians would ever do any such thing. This drone situation is just evolving into another Obama administration debacle. According to published reports President Obama had multiple options for dealing with the loss of the drone in order to prevent the Iranians from getting their hands on it’s secrets. He chose to DO NOTHING! Thats outrageous! Yet another example of failed Obama administration policy. There is no leadership coming out of this White House. The damn thing is probably on a flatbed on the way to Bejing right now.
You know what? I actually AGREE WITH THE IRANIAN OFFICIAL! At least he has a set!
Mmmmmm, Mmmmmm, Mmmmmmm!
