Hmmm I'm wondering, does anyone at all believe that these drones were "downed" by folly? Or in Iran's case, by Iran?
Or.. Is it possible that we LET Iran have that drone?
If you want to plant something really nasty, say, a really nasty virus, you would need a vehicle if you want to bypass security measures. Mayhaps the drone, the one in iran, was downed so Iranians could get their hands on it, reverse engeneer it, and doing so, infect themselves with who knows what. Perhaps this drone going down is the "scapegoat" for the one that went down in Iran.
It just doesnt seem to add up that Iran was watching the drone before it ever got there, and it fell into Iran's "Trap"? Very odd, and I'm very curious. If that drone was so secret, you can bet your butt, we would have had a team in there to destroy it as soon as it fell.

I hate to sound unpatriotic, but it all seems like a bit of come-uppence for minding everyone else's business and not tending to our own. It's kind of embarrassing.
