Iran Insists It Has Captured U.S. Drone

No Drone Missing over Persian Gulf – U.S. Navy

Iran’s State television showed images of what seemed to be an intact ScanEagle drone being inspected by Rear Adm. Ali Fadavi, the commander of IRGC Navy (IRGCN). The drone was displayed in front of a large map of the Persian Gulf with a text in English and Persian saying: “We will trample the U.S. under our feet.”

No U.S. drone has been lost in the Persian Gulf recently, a U.S. Navy spokesman said.

“The U.S. Navy has fully accounted for all unmanned air vehicles (UAV) operating in the Middle East region. Our operations in the Gulf are confined to internationally recognized water and air space,” said a spokesman for U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT) in Bahrain. “We have no record that we have lost any ScanEagles recently.” (Reuters, 4 December)

You're an idiot and a lousy liar. This drone, ScanEagle cost less than $100,000 each and is not licensed to be used for recreational purpose.

Next time, do your research before pulling BS out of your rectum.

You are clueless! This remote controlled drone was developed to find schools of tuna fish!

The mighty Iranian forces now have something to hunt fish with....if they can figure out how to put the drone back into flight....LOL!!!

US is a PATHALOGICAL LIAR. Most western media now acknowledge a downed ScanEagle in Iranian hands. The US has also sold this 2nd generation drone to UAE puppets where Pakistanis control them and fly them. This is most likely from th nominal UAE inventory. Looks like Iran has mastered the art of drone downing. LOL.

No one believes a single word coming from US liars anymore. Iran and Hezbollah have the most credibility in the region.

US hillbillies should quit sending these drones as gifts to Iran as it will have the best UAV drone fleet soon. Iran seems to really rub it in to the US deadbeat LOSERS.

If the captured drone belonged to the UAE, why that makes the US a pathological liar? The US Navy has said the drone doesn’t belong to them, never said anything about the UAE. There are relatively a large number of these drones in operation throughout the region, in both intelligence gathering and commercial missions (like the one used by the major oil companies). Sooner than later we will know where this particular drone came from. All the attention the Iranian press is giving this news seem to be mainly for domestic use.

Great victory for Islamic Republic and another defeat for its adversaries including agents and zionists on this blog.

Watch video on www.presstv.com and you will see and hear proper information.

For "authors" of this blog I suggest to recall what their sponsors claimed about RQ-170 drone at the very begining, when Iranian had said that it was a us drone...

Some "experts" stated that the model of the drone was a faked one and made from a plastic material.

Unfortunately you seem to be the one that is clueless. This piece of machinery has a range of abilities and can be used for several type of missions as well, not just the one you pointed out. It has a variety of built in "payloads per day" (highly capable), as the manufacturer likes to call it, which literally makes it a craft perfectly fit for spying operations, if that's what one wishes to use it for.

Mr Uskowi,

This drone may be purschased by the UAE and therefor belong to their inventory, but in reality it's still used as a tool in the hands of the U.S. as the Arab servants are either unable, cannot or are not allowed to learn how to operate this advanced craft, hence operational responsibility has been given to American expertise (possibly CIA) stationed in command buildings the UAE. This is open source information.

Truly eye-opening analysis.

2:15 AM,

We don't know if the drone belonged to the UAE. We know that the White House and the US Navy insist that they're not missing a ScanEagle UAV. I am sure with more information available in future, including from the Iranians, the probability of knowing what has happened increases.

This story, however, has blown out of proportion by the media, both in the West and inside Iran. There are so many unmanned drones flying in that region at any given time (on military as well as commercial missions). They can crash or be captured. The whole idea behind building an unmanned craft was to limit the damage in such cases.
