Well as the title states, Obama wants the drone back and Iran has made a silly statement...what else did the world expect. Last week there was reports that Iran hackers had hacked into a flying American man-less spy plane, otherwise known as a "drone" was landed and now in the control of Iran. We did a report on this and at the time there was a video that was released showing the drone. Well now a few on and its clear that this did really happen despite what the world thinks, these drones are indeed hackable, in-fact pretty much anything in the world is hackable. The Obama administration said Monday it has delivered a formal request to Iran for the return of a U.S. surveillance drone captured by Iranian armed forces, but is not hopeful that Iran will comply. President Barack Obama said that the U.S. wants the top-secret aircraft back. "We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said during a White House news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday. Now its funny because of what the Iran Government has stated,,,, In an interview broadcast live Monday night on Venezuelan state television, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said nothing to suggest his country would grant the U.S. request. "The Americans have perhaps decided to give us this spy plane," Ahmadinejad said. "We now have control of this plane." Speaking through an interpreter, Ahmadinejad said: "There are people here who have been able to control this spy plane, who can surely analyze this plane's system also. ... In any case, now we have this spy plane." So what will Iran do, what will they learn from this system? Is it going to finally help the world see what the American government can see with its spy planes and the type of surveillance they do with it? most of the world can probably already guess these answers and be right the 1st time but this will show evidence and proof. The real chances of Iran giving this back is fairly slim so what other options does that leave for America? will this mean Cyber war is real and we can expect more? or will it be another reason to send troops to another country and waste a whole lot of money. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Panetta said they're not optimistic about getting the drone back because of recent Iranian behavior that Clinton said indicated "that the path that Iran seems to be going down is a dangerous one for themselves and the region." "We submitted a formal request for the return of our lost equipment as we would in any situation to any government around the world," Clinton told reporters at a State Department news conference with British Foreign Secretary William Hague. "Given Iran's behavior to date we do not expect them to comply but we are dealing with all of these provocations and concerning actions taken by Iran in close concert with our closest allies and partners," she said. Panetta said the request to return the drone was appropriate. "I don't expect that that will happen," he said. "But I think it's important to make that request." Now the above statement to me sounds like American definitely has a backup plan that they expect to have to use....lets just wait and see what it will be.
