Thanks Barack… Iranian Regime Says It’s Building a Copy of Captured US Drone

Despite repeated warnings from the Pentagon, Barack Obama rejected three plans to recover or destroy the US drone that was intercepted over Iranian territory.

Jennifer Griffin reported this after the drone was captured.

Obama rejected three different proposals to recover or destroy the US drone that is now in the hands of the Iranian regime.
Of course, the democrat-media complex completely ignored this story.

Now this…
The Iranian regime announced today that they would build a copy of the captured US drone.
The AP reported:

Iran claimed Sunday that it had reverse-engineered an American spy drone captured by its armed forces last year and has begun building a copy.

Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, chief of the aerospace division of the powerful Revolutionary Guards, related what he said were details of the aircraft’s operational history to prove his claim that Tehran’s military experts had extracted data from the U.S. RQ-170 Sentinel captured in December in eastern Iran, state television reported.

Among the drone’s past missions, he said, was surveillance of the compound in northwest Pakistan in which Osama Bin Laden lived and was killed.

Tehran has flaunted the capture of the Sentinel, a top-secret surveillance drone with stealth technology, as a victory for Iran and a defeat for the United States in a complicated intelligence and technological battle.

U.S. officials have acknowledged losing the drone. They have said Iran will find it hard to exploit any data and technology aboard it because of measures taken to limit the intelligence value of drones operating over hostile territory.

Hajizadeh told state television that the captured surveillance drone is a “national asset” for Iran and that he could not reveal full technical details.

    Yea, they “reverse engineered” it and made a Revell plastic model of it.
    Bambam had it delivered to their doorstep on purpose, why would he order it destroyed?

  • Joanne

    Just a crisis Obama didn’t allow to go to waste. It is so clear you have a enemy in your midst, troops within the gates, but the people are asleep.

  • Andreas K.

    Well, they’ll fail. Then China, which already reverse-engineered it, will have to build one for them.

  • Reminds me of the old 1950s black and white sci-fi movies where a flying saucer crashes and the Earthlings try to figure it out….these fools will have the same success.

    What do you expect from the demander in chief, the thief in chief, the teleprompter reader in chief, the vacationer in chief, the put off important decisoner in chief, the divider in chief, the racist in chief,massive spender in chief, the American hater in chief ?????

    The US military is too powerful ansd its not fair…. He is simply spreading the military power and technology around to those less fortunate and who happen to practice jihad.

    What a complete and utter clusterf*ck this clown is.

    3 1/2 years in office and he still isn’t even close to being qualified to be President.

  • paul52

    Hey, Likemydinnerjacket, we’ll swap you the whole Nerobama clan for the drone. You get the Mooch, Druncle, the auxiliary wives, the illegtimate brats, and the rest of the gang. We’ll even throw in Jesse Jackson’s love-child and Biden’s hair plugs… with Joey still attached. Whaddya say?

    Impeachment is appropriate

    This is just one more “redistribution” of the United States’ resources. He just scored another “jihadi” point against us infidels. Our muslim brother in the White House is the poster child for Takyia…..the art of saying anything (lying) to further Allah’s glory. The America we love will be no more….if Obama is re-elected……just ask the Soviets what Obama will do with all of that “flexibility.”

    “Despite repeated warnings from the Pentagon, Barack Obama rejected three plans to recover or destroy the US drone that was intercepted over Iranian territory.”

    When this story first came out, I was mortified, still am and I just can’t explain how upsetting this was then and is now. Words just aren’t enough.

    Once again, Obama needs to be impeached. Don’t tell me he can’t because of Holder, yes I know and the majority of Democrats in The Senate. It would be next to impossible, now.

    But what isn’t impossible is a defeated and shocked Obama and Family when he loses in a Landslide, come November.

    We handed over the drone to Iran and Iran gave information to China and China and Russia are working together in Military Drills. What could be worse.

    Our nuclear defense system’s blueprints and Obama is for reducing that.

    This is OUR nation and Obama JUST ISN’T working for the betterment and security of it.

  • Patty

    Obama is for reducing our Missile defense system. He took out our Missile for Russia way back when and nothing in return from Russians but more missiles for them and more of our technology flying out the window.
    This is are America, I want it back!

  • Patty

    I had been waiting patiently for U.S. to recovery this drone. Nothing. I thought then that Congress or any Patriotic leader would have step up to the plate. Nothing.

    This is among the many disgraces that this administration given us to endure.

  • CV1

    He is an appearser with no guts. A wimp’s wimp.

    Iran was probably told they will be on “double secret probabtion” if we don’t get that drone back.

  • Swifty

    But he got Bin Laden. That big event certainly negates this one. tic

  • Kate

    Giving information to the enemy….isn’t that treason? Swifty, getting Obama was such an aberration…since I question that man’ s motives on everything, I’m not willing to assign his patriotism to the act. And the Seals are ambushed soon after. A team that contained some who participated in the Osama mission.

  • debrobeaudean

    I believe they meant to say “recovered” drone… it was “delivered” and it was “recovered”

  • Patty

    Here you go, Iran, on a silver platter our defense secrets for building your very own, DRONE.

    And what does Obama do, NOTHING.

  • just-saying

    Treason! Obummer got it to Iran on purpose.

  • AuntieMadder

    Who among us didn’t see this one coming after Kenya Boy had one given to them to be reverse engineered?

    In related news, American Professors Gather in Tehran for Occupy Wall Street Conference

    The Conservative Monster http://theconservativemonster.mobi/2012/04/21/american-professors-gather-in-tehran-for-occupy-wall-street-conference-.aspx

    “The Occupy Wall Street movement needs to be considered a terrorist movement from this day on due to Iranian influence. Iran is Russia’s terror proxy and it is about time that something is done about it.

    The Communist operatives in this video need to be interrogated and possibly even arrested for collaborating with the enemy Iran. Iran has been directly linked to terrorist groups in Iraq and Afghanistan by the US Military on numerous occasions. Iran is also linked to Al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah.

    The only people that are against McCarthyism are other communists.

    With oBama at the helm, who could have expected anything else? Leading from behind. It’s what Democrats do, especially the commie ones.

    Question is, how good is the Iranian composite material technology?

    Reverse engineer the electronics all you want, but build it from aluminum and the thing will never leave the ground. Not to mention the land based controls and satellite transmitted commands. Unless Iran has a worldwide satellite grid in space.

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    He gave it to them…

  • Valerie

    Ohhh, I hope they take the electronics from it, and insert them into their own system, to analyze them.

    Don’t think it isn’t in the hands of the Russians…who’ll have no trouble figuring it out —

    From McFaul’s tweets, it is perfectly clear that the Obama administration has no intention of setting the record straight or altering its dangerous policy of appeasement towards a nuclear-fanged nation run by a proud KGB spy which can rightfully be thought of as America’s most dangerous opponent. It is therefore time for Boehner and Romney to show real leadership — not just for a new cycle, but for an entire presidential election. It is time to drive Obama and McFaul from power and replace them with a neo-Reaganite foreign policy suitable for a neo-Soviet Russian dictatorship.

    The polls McFaul refers to indicate that Americans think China and Iran are bigger threats to the USA than Russia. That’s because Obama and McFaul have worked hard to help hide from American eyes Russia’s active support for both Iran and China, as well as Russia’s own determined efforts to destroy the values American hold dear. It is time for the Republicans to expose Obama’s lies and bring American policy into line with reality, before irreparable harm is done to American interests.

    Is it treason yet?
    I’m surprised he hasn’t already carpet bombed bitter clinger flyover territory.

  • BubbaHotep

    Obama’s version of “detente”. Much like Carter’s release of strategic military technology to the Russians.

  • befuddled

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this wasn’t a means of directly handing them our technology.It’s very circumstantial how our military allowed a multimillion dollar drone, filled with intelligence data, to be so easily hijacked and left intact for the Chinese,Russians, and Iranians. Makes me curious about the possibility of other technology we might have passed along to our enemies since Obama has become president.

    Not to worry, they are just at the clay model stage. They are still aways away from the Bronze age over there. Fire invented last month.
