Well, you can bet that the Iranian's will share it with the Chinese and the Russian's just the video states.

Not to worry, it was a Trojan drone. I can't tell you what was inside, I'm sworn to secrecy. All I can say is I pity anybody coming into contact with it or any of its parts.

Quote from the Fox News: The aircraft likely "wandered" into Iranian air space after losing contact with its handlers and is presumed to be intact since it is programmed to fly level and find a place to land, rather than crashing.[End Quote.]

Why the hell is a top secret stealth drone that is used to fly over enemy territory undetected programed to land safely when contact is lost??? You would think it would be programmed to detonate in the air and self destruct! WTF....now our stealth technology is in the hands of the Iranians which will soon be in the hands of the Russians and the Chinese!

This is a huge blow to our military technology!

I am very concerned how the US Military had their multimillion dollar equipment "wander" into another country. I don't believe it.
"This is a big prize in terms of technology," a senior U.S. military source told Fox News.
Sure, ok, this is what any senior official says when they lose something top secret.
Should of said it was a weather balloon

Maybe the Isfahan incident was another "trojan drone" that went KA-BOOOOM!

Im sure it didn't just wander off into Iran...It was being used to spy on Iran. That's why they used stealth technology. Reports say the US military was contemplating an air strike on the captured aircraft to destroy it but dismissed that option because it may be perceived by the Iranians as an act of war.Why are we so afraid of Iran? I say the hell with Iran distroy the aircraft!

The Iranian dirt bags are now calling the drone incident an act of war! What a joke.like the attempted assassination of a foreign diplomat on US soil was not? Obama has failed! We should have distroyed that aircraft! This President reminds me of Billy Carter back in 79.

We should have blown the thing up no doubt. If they didn't like that, too bad. What exactly are they going to do about it? Nothing. We have air power all around them. They won't be doing much, but Obama is such a big puss and so worried about what everyone thinks, he couldn't do it. He thinks world politics is a popularity contest, and it is one of the things I despise about him the most.

As far as learning from this...It would seem to me the worst part is that the stealth technology will be given up to the communists. The Iranians are too dumb to do anything with the technology.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but nobody is going to be able to interface with the communications control system, or decrypt any of the data that may be onboard. The level to which these things would be encrypted would be beyond breaking, correct?

I doubt it. They have unlimited access to the data. Even if it is encrypted, they have all the time in the World to decode it. That is unless we drop a smart-bomb right on top of the drone.

Im not sure decoding all the data is the ultimate prize here anyway. All they are going get are images taken of their own nuke sites. The real prize is our stealth technology.Not so much for the Iranians but for the Russians and the Chinese! This is a MAJOR,MAJOR set back for our technological advantage in the world!

I say we give the Iranians an ultimatum! Hand over the aircraft or we take out their nuke sites! We should also make it clear to the Iranians that any attack on Israel will be met with overwhelming force! I think the resent attempted assassination of a diplomat on US soil is enough justification for taking military action against Iran!

Screw Iran!

They aren't a news source. I will wait for actual reports from real news outlets. ABC. NBC. CBS . CNN. MSNBC etc. FOX is porn for republicans.
Imagine that--politics & porn simultaneously--Excellent idea :p
