I recently read this in the New York Times.
Well, what do you guys think?Iran said Friday that it had formally complained to the United Nations Security Council about what it called the hostile and aggressive behavior of the United States in sending a sophisticated radar-evading spy drone over Iranian territory, one that Iran’s military said it had intercepted and captured last weekend.The complaint, which appeared to have been made more for its propaganda value than for any Iranian hope of Security Council action, was announced a day after Iran showcased what it described as the captured drone on national television, as if it were a war trophy. Members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps were shown displaying a bat-winged aircraft on a platform bedecked with anti-American slogans and a mock American flag with skulls instead of stars.
American officials reviewing the footage have declined to confirm or deny that it showed the same model as the RQ-170 Sentinel surveillance aircraft that they have acknowledged was lost recently by C.I.A. controllers based in Afghanistan, a lapse attributed to an unspecified technical malfunction. But military experts have said privately that the Iranians appear to have an RQ-170, one of the Pentagon’s most technologically advanced reconnaissance drones.
How that happened remained unclear. Iran has asserted that it captured the aircraft via a cyberattack, saying its armed forces detected the drone on Sunday over northern Iran and were able to guide it to a safe landing about 155 miles from the Afghanistan border.
Does Iran actually have a drone, or is it just propaganda which is fuel for America's tension with Iran?
