Iran Fired on U.S. Drone a Week Ago

It happened a week ago, but hey, why let the public know? Don’t worry about anything though, Mr. Spine of Steel remains on duty.

Two Iranian Su-25 fighter jets fired on an unarmed U.S. Air Force Predator drone in the Persian Gulf last week, CNN has learned.

The incident raises fresh concerns within the Obama administration about Iranian military aggression in crucial Gulf oil shipping lanes.

The drone was in international airspace east of Kuwait, U.S. officials said, adding it was engaged in routine maritime surveillance.

Although the drone was not hit, the Pentagon is concerned.

Two U.S. officials explained the jets were part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps force, which has been more confrontational than regular Iranian military forces.

The Obama administration did not disclose the incident, which occurred just days before the presidential election on November 1, but three senior officials confirmed the details to CNN.

    And of course the obama-bots don’t see anything wrong with that. If Bush would have done something similar there’d be protests in the streets. Now they just shrug their shoulders, say “Big deal”, try to convince themselves that the community organizer is capable of telling the truth and protecting us, and go back to their bong and food stamps.
