While intelligence officials are investigating a handful of scenarios to explain the lost CIA drone now held in Iran, Fox News has learned that a leading scenario is that the drone went into a default setting for an automatic landing pattern.
Two intelligence sources, who work cyber issues, say the other scenarios include a catastrophic or navigational malfunction that caused the RQ170 to break contact with its base. But that scenario is problematic, the sources said, because it does not fully explain the "soft landing, one where it lands and lands well, not scratched up."
Under a third scenario, which is described as "plausible, but remote," the drone's data stream was compromised or jammed. One U.S. official emphasized that there was "no evidence of jamming" or that "hostile fire took down the drone."

My thoughts drone.. The drone is known and current tech, anything extremely sensitive was damaged or disabled before flight. It is equipped with all kinds of Trojan horse devices, maybe even a lethal biological virus payload inside to kill off those trying to study it. Lost drone is also used as a false flag to say " they hijacked the signal" so they could fly a "nuclear equipped" drone in the US allowing us an excuse to start WW-III. Ready?
