Yeah, i heard it was a globalhawk as well. With rumors of other drones, upto 5 others being hit. I doubt 5 other drones have been shot down but you never know.

This claim originated on the Hal Turner radio show 2 days ago

To me, this is like one of those outlandish claims Superstation95 would come up with.



No legitimate sources have confirmed this, and it is interesting a US Air Force globalhawk drone also was downed in California 1 day ago

www.cbsnews.com...

Yeah, it's total BS. Every single story comes back to Hal Turner. He has no idea what he's talking about in the story about it too.

That's probably where the story came about. They saw the Global Hawk crash in California and saw an opportunity to spin it into something else.

I guess it explains the jail pictures

I could see the SAM site shooting at a drone. It would be safer than shooting at something that can shoot back.

Sources don't seem great.

A Jordanian drone, tiny little thing compared to the Global Hawk was shot down in Daraa Governorate by the Syrians.

Maybe that's what gave the "inspiration" for this story?

Probably a combination of that, and the Global Hawk crash in California. Put the two together, and you have a much bigger story, that gets you a lot more money if you sell it to lots of news sites.

My two favorite parts of this BS claim. Taken from the Hal Turner website story.


The S-300 is one of the most fearsome, accurate, and deadly interceptor missiles in the world. It does not miss.



BACN is a high-altitude, airborne communications and information gateway system that maintains operational communications support 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The persistent connectivity that BACN provides improves situational awareness and enables better coordination between forward-edge warfighters and commanders. BACN bridges and extends voice communications and battlespace awareness information from numerous sources using a suite of computers and radio systems.


Which lead to:


If this information that the Russians shot down an EQ-4 Global Hawk is accurate, then US Troops operating on the ground with Syrian "Rebels" will no longer be able to INSTANTLY talk to nearby air support as was done a few days ago, when a US F/A-18 was called-in to attack and destroy a Syrian Arab Army Air Force fighter jet.
