Come home, little drone: Iran bags a big one

By SolidGround

It might be true. Iran claims that it exploited the well- and long-known GPS navigational weakness in US drones to hijack the RQ-170 Sentinel drone and land it intact inside Iran.

Iran also claims it’s been working on executing just such a feat for several years, having gleaned enough knowledge to do so from previously downed American drones.

We’ve heard a lot from the Obama administration about our drone prowess. We’ve heard virtually nothing about its failures–until now. This one looks like a home run for the Islama-facists in Teheran.
