TEHRAN, Dec. 13 (UPI) — An Iranian lawmaker said Tuesday the country had no intention of returning a U.S. spy drone Tehran says it brought down in northern Iran Dec. 4.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, also said the United States must compensate Iran because the RQ-170 Sentinel spy drone violated that country’s airspace, Iran’s Press TV reported.

“[U.S. President Barack] Obama is ignoring the fact that a spy drone has violated Iran’s airspace and according to international law, this is a violation,” Boroujerdi said.

Boroujerdi said the United States must “pay compensation for the violating [of] Iran’s airspace” and apologize to the Islamic Republic.

His comments came a day after Obama acknowledged for the first time a U.S. drone was in Iranian hands and said Washington wanted it back.

“We’ve asked for it back — we’ll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama said at a White House news briefing with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

Obama would not elaborate on why the remote-controlled spy aircraft fitted with reconnaissance equipment did not return to its base in neighboring Afghanistan.

Press TV reported the Iranian army’s electronic warfare unit landed the spy drone “with minimal damage” Dec. 4 after it was flying over the northeastern Iran city of Kashmar, about 140 miles from the Afghan border.

U.S. officials have attributed the drone’s loss to a technical malfunction.

Tehran last week lodged a formal complaint with the U.N. Security Council alleging the drone violation of Iranian airspace amounted to a U.S. “invasion.”

  • gus

    Why didn’t Obama have the DRONE….SELF DESTRUCTED on COMMAND??

  • FreddyB

    3,000 million dollars? The F-22 is $125 million. That can’t be right, can it?

  • Winston

    Its price tag is about 6 mln dollars not 3 bln… A B-2 is about 1 bln dollars though.

  • onbe

    That would be kind of neat.They drag it back to HQ

  • Rock

    You mean our spineless commander couldn’t bow far enough and say pretty please. Anyone think this would have been the results under Bush or Reagan?

  • gus

    The MEDIA is reporting NONE of THIS.

    Obama allowed a top secret drone to be taken by IRAN. There are SELF-DESTRUCT COMMANDS built in to these DRONES.

    Why? Why would OBAMA not allow the DRONE to be blown up?
    Who the HELL do you THINK has our TECHNOLOGIES NOW????

    Rose and Bill Mitchell. Our LIBTARDS and our LIBTARD COMMIE PRESIDENT, have no idea how much blood, sweat and tears and more BLOOD, went into the creation of the DRONE that Obama has SACRIFICED.

    Obama is a secular Muslim. IN his Psychological DYSFUNCTION, Barry Hussein….RELATES more to COMMIES and MUSLIM THEOCRACIES, than he does to you and I.

    Obama is WORTHLESS. He is less than WORTHLESS, because he CONTINUES to COST AMERICA. Big Time.

  • gus

    VETTE-RACER, Obama claimed to have ELIMINATED X amount of Al Qaeda, number 1’s and number 2’s ETC. Obama is a PROPOGANDA GAFF MACHINE.

    Obama is a fvcking clown. Everyone knows it. Unfortunately the MSM, is the ONLY source that DAY TO DAY American fools see and listen to.

    Maybe the drone is stealthily taking pictures and waiting for the Chinese to assemble for the transfer ceremony, before it goes kaboom. Then Obama will say oops, the self-destruct mechanism must have been damaged but not destroyed, and we’ll all have a good laugh.
    I think I’ll go check my temperature now, I seem to be delirious.

  • gus

    Nelle. Obama said that DESTROYING the DRONE, might be considered a HOSTILE ACTION of WAR by IRAN.

    No schit???

    What does Iran consider flying the DRONES over it’s country????

    Obama is an illogical, psychologically damaged IMBECILE.

    Obama ERRS, to the favor of OUR ENEMIES.

    He’s a COMMIE, red diaper baby. And he is psychologically INCAPABLE of LOGICAL nor PATRIOTIC thought. He’s a fvcking DISGRACE.

  • American Woman

    He is an enemy of the United States involved in stealth jihad.

  • Zim

    Come on guys he is tired and stressed out. It is not as easy as it looks destroying the best country in the world. He could use a vacation and chill out for 17 days. It will be easier to make this hard decisions after some R & R

  • squeaky

    someone said no! i’m sure he’ll need some time to reasses his awesomeness. don’t they know just who he is? it’s tough being a narcissist with all the messaging of one’s ego and all… this type of personality has destroyed a lot of companies never mind giving him the keys to the kingdom.

    Ex-Iran Guard commander visits White House with Iraq leader
    A former commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which the FBI says played a role in a 1996 terrorist attack that killed 19 U.S. servicemen, accompanied Iraq’s prime minister to the White House on Monday, attending an event at which President Obama trumpeted the end of the Iraq War.
    Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has been involved in “countless acts of terrorism, which are acts of war against the United States,” Mr. Freeh said in an interview.

    Mr. al-Amiri served as a commander of the Revolutionary Guard’s Badr Corps, a battalion that was tasked with operations in Iraq. He remained active in the Badr Corps during the late 1980s and 1990s, when he was working on resistance efforts against Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq.

    The FBI linked the Revolutionary Guard to the attack on the Khobar Towers in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, on June 25, 1996. Nineteen U.S. servicemen were killed by a bomb blast at the towers, which were
    housing American Military Personnel….
    SOOooo…BHO coulda asked him about the Drone right then and there.
    Plus ,,,,WTF is the Iranian Guard doing in the Oval Office???
    BHO coulda said no!! To the Iranian “””guest”” inside OUR WH….

  • camilla

    BHO will not stan up to Iran….but WORSE is that Obama pizzzed the Chinese off

    China’s Hu urges navy to prepare for combat
    Hu’s announcement comes in the wake of trips to Asia by several senior US officials, including President Barack Obama, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    And China said late last month it would conduct naval exercises in the Pacific Ocean, after Obama, who has dubbed himself America’s first Pacific president, said the US would deploy up to 2,500 Marines to Australia.

    China’s People’s Liberation Army, the largest military in the world, is primarily a land force, but its navy is playing an increasingly important role as Beijing grows more assertive about its territorial claims.

    YES!!! Iran is our Enemy….
    BUT NOW China is pizzed……
    Not to be taken lightly…
    Thanks Obama/s
