The Iranian regime fired on a US drone in international air space on November 1.
The Pentagon decided to hold on to this news but responded after it was leaked out today.
FOX News reported:

Iran has fired at a U.S. drone, the Pentagon confirmed Thursday.

The incident occurred Nov. 1 at 4:50 a.m. ET, Pentagon spokesman George Little said.

He said the unarmed, unmanned drone was conducting “routine surveillance” when it was “intercepted” by Iran. He said the drone was not in Iranian airspace.

CNN has more:

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.

CNN did not say when they learned of the attack.

  1. All your trying to do is “politicize” this incident right before the elec….., oh wait a minute! We already had the election! Racist!

  2. Funny how this wasn’t mentioned by the Bias media and then this:

    One senior GOP Senate staffer told The Cable that State is only making the documents available for senators and committee staff to view today and tomorrow, which won’t actually allow the members to prepare for the hearing. Staffers for committee members are also not allowed to see the material.

    “Funny since no member is in town,” the aide said. “The timing and limited access clearly demonstrates the administration cares more about playing politics with the tragedy than accepting responsibility.”

  3. “the drone was not hit”

    Sharpshooters, eh?

  4. I’m sure Barry has a plan to wipe out the Iranian military capability in a coordinated strike that will incapacitate them in one hour.

  5. Sweet sweet revenge on us, thank you america,weakness shows to the world. Hurt us we will give you money ,hurt us agin we will build your country. AMERICA died Nov. 6th,2012,America buy your head scraf, koran and your new flag Black and green with alittle red.

  6. We are being lorded over by a criminal enterprise. No other explaination.

  7. Not to worry, there were Iranian pilots in my USAF Undergraduate Pilot Training class in the late 1960s…they were not very good, and most kept washing back until they either killed themselves or got sent home and got transferred to tanks or were allowed to fly anyway. Not being “racist”, they just had an “attitude” that you dumb Americans can’t teach me anything and besides, no matter what I do, I have diplomatic immunity. One of them used that immunity when he got angry about something, hopped into his Corvette, and drove to LA to the Iranian embassy to complain. He drove 100 MPH most of the way, got stopped, showed the cop his passport and immunity letter, and the cop had to let him go.

    Who knows where they are now, but if these are the kinds of instructors they have teaching Iranian pilots to fly, it’s no wonder they couldn’t even shoot down an unmanned, unarmed drone.

    America: Get Ready For War

    Iran knows they are negotiating from a position of strength, because they already know Obama will give away the farm in order to avoid a military conflict.

    Israel knows it, too. And it looks as though Netanyahu has decided it might be best, for Israel, if they handle the attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities on their own — unencumbered by a limp-wristed American administration.

    Netanyahu recently told an Israeli TV station that he is prepared to act unilaterally in a strike against the Iranians, as the United States has failed to show outright support for an Israeli strike on the nation.

    Netanyahu went on to say: “When David Ben-Gurion declared the foundation of the state of Israel, was it done with American approval?” When Levi Eshkol was forced to act in order to loosen the siege before 1967, was it done with the Americans’ support?

    “If someone sits here as the prime minister of Israel and he can’t take action on matters that are cardinal to the existence of this country, its future and its security, and he is totally dependent on receiving approval from others, then he is not worthy of leading,” Netanyahu assured the TV audience: “I can make these decisions.” SOURCE: http://personalliberty.com/2012/11/07/netanyahu-ready-to-press-the-button-on-iran/

    Israel has been quietly building up a task force, and the materiel such a task force would need, including Israeli built tankers for in-flight refueling of it’s fighter-bombers, and negotiating for emergency landing fields for damaged aircraft after the raid.

    To be sure, Israel is going to attack Iran — and soon.

    With Obama’s reelection, there is absolutely no reason for Israel to wait any longer to attack Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows that America/Obama will not be there to aid them.That also means Obama will not be able to interfere with Israel’s plan for a raid on Iran any longer. IDF_AirforceWe now know that — as we reported some days ago now — the Obama Regime has been secretly negotiating with Iran — behind Israel’s back — for some sort of compromise deal on suspending Iran’s endeavor to create the “Islam Bomb” (An Atomic Bomb). Obama’s number one advisor,…

  9. The delay in announcing this news is in part due to the fact that Valerie Jarrett is still looking for Obama’s bomber jacket and she is still working on his response.

  10. This story doesn’t make much sense. Drones are not exactly evasive. If they wanted to shoot it down, they would have. Sounds like they were having fun to me. Besides, this is a foreign policy issue. His voters only care about their free money. If they remain clueless and careless about Benghazi, what makes anyone think this would matter to an Obama voter?

  11. Iran knows they are negotiating from a position of strength, because they already know Obama will give away the farm in order to avoid a military conflict.

    do you believe that the women, youth, Hispanics or Blacks care about this when they voted for more of the same.

    and remember this:

    Israeli Paper: Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Holding Secret Talks With Iran

    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/israeli-paper-obama-adviser-valerie-jarrett-holding-secret-talks-iran

  12. @gracepmc: ValJar is the first African female president. No wait! That’s Obama. Nevermind……

  13. Jarrett most likely gave them the green-light to go a head shoot the drone down during all those secret meetings ,no need for drone to spy on Iran ‘s nuclear sights anymore, O had the election in the bag….

  14. wow mission classified nov 1, but no longer classified nov 8!! fastest declassify on record!!

  15. WW III has begun … pray

  16. Nothing like starting off the new session of the Obama Administration by admitting they hid information from the general population that may have considered this Iranian action/US non-response in voting for Obama or Romney re addressing foreign affairs.

  17. #16 WWIII has not begun. Come on!!! For there to be a War, both sides have to fight. Obama will be tying our hands behind our backs.

    You are right about the “pray” part. We all need to do a lot of that.

    It’s ignorant to think that people would have changed their opinion about Obama had any of this came out. Like Limbaugh said, “you can’t win against Santa Clause”. The media has created this fictional character that the naive and ignorant young people of this country bought into. The facts have never mattered with them.
