BREAKING: Iran says it shot down unmanned US spy plane

Oh, for a Commander in Chief.

The Associated Press is reporting that Iran has just shot down an unmanned spy plane. A RQ-170 Sentinel also known as “The Beast of Kandahar.” This is going to get awkward for the Obama administration. I hope the GOP will show some leadership on this issue, but I doubt it.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s armed forces have shot down an unmanned U.S. spy plane that violated Iranian airspace along the country’s eastern border, the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday.

An unidentified military official quoted in the report warned of a strong and crushing response to any violations of the country’s airspace by American drone aircraft.

“An advanced RQ-170 unmanned American spy plane was shot down by Iran’s armed forces. It suffered minor damage and is now in possession of Iran’s armed forces,” IRNA quoted the official as saying.

No further details were published.
