John Bolton: It’s not clear why it’s come out now

Hold this ’til after the election…

Fox News reported:

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, which marks the first time the Iranians have fired on a U.S. drone, 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.

According to Little, two Iranian jets fired twice, missing on both attempts — the drone headed away from the Iranian coast, landing safely soon after at an undisclosed location. The Iranian jets pursued the drone for a short period before giving up.

Little said the U.S. government has protested to the Iranians. Asked about how the U.S. could respond, he said: “We have a wide range of options from diplomatic to military.”

    They were probably warning shots, and the drone did what the Iranians wanted it to do—left the area—so they didn’t pursue. Whether the drone was in International or Iranian airspace remains to be seen—especially since the story was colored by John Bolton at FOX News.

    Are you so naive as to thing that the government—regardless of the ‘regime’ in power—or FOX News, always reports the fact accurately, and timely?

    Like when Reagan delayed the release of the Iranian hostages until immediately after his inaugural speech.

    In the last few weeks we’ve has Russian war ships off both our west and our east coast.
    Iran shot at our drone while it was in International Airspace.
    Logically, a nation can only be EITHER solvent or bankrupt and EITHER exceptional or ordinary.
    The American majority voted for bankruptcy and mediocrity.
    What was it Obama said at his victory speech?
    Were are a nation of ”ex-colonialists.”
    Like Zimbabwe, Libya, Egypt, South Africa, Pakistan….the USA NEEDS the the ”natives” to take over…..wait a minute!….wouldn’t that be the Indian tribes???

    An act of war/aggression was committed against this country over a week ago and we are just finding out about it now. Imagine that. Oh well, it came from Fox so it must not be true. Even though they named their source, the left will now claim that George Little is a an actor Fox hired to impersonate an official from the administration.
