Iran fired at unarmed
US drone, Pentagon says

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/8/2012 2:42:43 PM

Iran fired on an unarmed U.S. drone last week as it was hovering in international airspace, the Pentagon announced Thursday. Spokesman George Little said the incident occurred Nov. 1 at 4:50 a.m. ET. He said the unarmed, unmanned drone was conducting "routine surveillance" over the Persian Gulf when it was "intercepted" by Iran. He said the MQ1 Predator drone, which was not hit, was not in Iranian airspace. (Snip) Little stressed that the drone was flying 16 nautical miles off the coast of Kuwait in international waters, and never entered the 12-mile limit that would constitute Iranian territory.

Comments:
The only reason we are hearing about this now is that the news broke and the Pentagon was forced to go public. Damage control before Obama's election.

Nice timing on hearing about this. Everything to protect the election of the Won. Nothing in the MSM (only Drudge) about Russians nuclear subs off the east coast a few weeks ago or in the Gulf of Mexico this spring. I hope all of the idiots that voted for Obama are happy.

Pretty soon the only way we will know what is happening is if it's a direct hit on the United States and caught on video by a citizen who did not vote for Obama.

I wonder when Obama will hold his next press conference and I wonder if anyone who is called on will ask about this.

Wonder how Jay Carney spins this. "Let's not jump to conclusions. I don't want to comment while we are conducting an investigation. It appears our drone was flying in the path the missle they launched. That's all we can say at this time. No one wants to get to the bottom of this more than the president. He finds it insulting that anyone would politicize this or question his judgement."

In my new post-election frame of mind, I now see the timing of this information as irrelevant. Obama voters would not have cared, even if the news had come out prior to the election.

Dem voters don't care if you are a Dem and:

have ethics violations;

have planned to sell out your country to the Russians;

have consorted with terrorists from the 1970's;

have been indicted, like the state senator in Illinois (in another posting today);

have lied about your native American background to get a plumb job gaming the diversity system;

have committed plagarism and are just plan crazy besides;

are under care in an institution (likely for drug problems);

have lied under oath about your adulterous habits;

have geared federal stimulous money to relatives;

and on and on.

Dems don't care. Power is the end.

A Predator flying at a sizzling 100mph or so over the Persian Gulf is unlikely to be carrying anything but a camera.

Predators can of course equiped to fire Hellfire air-to-ground missiles, but not all are. I am not aware that they have ever yet been set up to carry Sidewinders. Could probably be done. Then we'd call it a UCAV - unmanned Combat aerial vehicle. Much fancier UCAVs are being developed.

One ship was carrying equipment to detect the plane´s vital black box, but it remained uncertain whether the vessels were approaching a successful end to the search or another frustrating dead end.

As a school superintendent, you’re typically measured by a few numbers.

President Barack Obama’s appearance on funnyordie.com’s parody show “Between Two Ferns,” where he took mock questions from comic Zach Galifianakis, was a lot of things: funny, unusual, an intriguing way to sell Obamacare and very popular. One thing it was not, though, was an “interview” — unless you’re White House press secretary Jay Carney. Carney was defending the administration’s aggressive campaign to get young people to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

California public health officials say 19 of the 32 cases of measles they have confirmed so far this year are in people who had not been vaccinated, and of that group, 14 were intentionally not vaccinated. As the number of measles cases continues to grow across the state — there were only three by this time last year — officials at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have urged parents against opting out of vaccinating their children. They say an increase in the number of people choosing not to vaccinate could drive a resurgence of the respiratory disease, since

VILNIUS, Lithuania—Vice President Biden’s we’re-all-in-this together tour of Eastern Europe, a two-country stop that concludes here Wednesday, has highlighted not only the growing regional anxieties over Russia’s designs on Ukraine but also how much work the Obama administration has to do to convince allies of its support. At its core, Biden’s message here and in Poland was a simple reaffirmation of what one senior administration official called a “bedrock commitment”: The United States would honor NATO’s basic premise that if one member nation is attacked, all would come to its defense.

Biden, whose tendancy toward gaffes is well known, served as chairman from 2001 to 2003; Poland joined NATO in 1999. “Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland’s admission into NATO,” Biden said in Warsaw, Poland, on Tuesday during a visit to reassure allies as Russia moved to annex Crimea.(Snip) Former Sen.

SEVASTOPOL/MOSCOW--The United States warned Moscow it was on a "dark path" to isolation on Wednesday after Russian troops backed by unarmed volunteers stormed Ukraine´s naval headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol and raised their flag. The dramatic seizure came as Russia and the West dug in for a long confrontation over Moscow´s annexation of Crimea, with the United States and Europe groping for ways to increase pressure on a defiant Russian President Vladimir Putin. "As long as Russia continues on this dark path, they will face increasing political and economic isolation," said U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, referring to reports of

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act.
