And we are hearing about this NOW?? Gee media, thanks for being “Unbiased” and not letting us know about this LAST WEEK when it happened..I am thinking we are about to hear much more more tidbits that the Obama loving media had been hiding from us..now that Obama has been re-elected by the Socialist loving drones, the media has nothing to fear from presenting us the truth

Don’t worry... Obama will apologize for our drone, and our world standing will shrink again.

Routine surveillance mission. Pentagon didn’t release last week because it was classified as of last week.

Yeah. Right.

Just read the CNN report of it too. Two Iranian jets fired on our drone in international airspace east of Kuwait. The drone was engaged in routine maritime surveillance.

The two U.S. officials who are confirming wish to remain anonymous. Duh.

The Obozo administration chose not to disclose the incident, which occurred on November 1st.

The US protested the incident to Iran, but haven’t heard back from them. OMG...they’re kidding, right?

We shouldn’t worry too much, though. I heard on the news this morning that Obozo has already scheduled the first international diplomatic trip of his second term. In just a few weeks, he will be visiting...wait for it...BURMA!!

The level of subterfuge and deceit in this administration is appalling.

BS as far as I can determine. There is no way to fly near Iran and be in international air space.

When will Valerie Jarrett's puppet, Barry Hussein Soetoro, surrender to the Iranians? The USS MISSOURI is available and it is in Hawaii. What a way to get a vacation and advance the Caliphate! Genius.

Per CNN: "The drone's still and video cameras captured the incident showing two SU-25s approaching the Predator and firing its onboard guns."

There's video.

The presence of a Russian sub off of our coast is symptomatic of OB’s new “flexibility” toward Russia. Perhaps he will cede land to them for a military base in Alaska.

So, another “November surprise” was suppressed by the regime..

But, you know what, I hope all those that felt it was too inconvenient to sully their hands by voting for Romney look back on these and the events sure to come over the next few years and say to themselves.. “Boy am I glad I decided that it was better we have four more years of Obama than someone who loved the country and wanted to defend it..”

I just want to know when , not if , Iran finally gets their atomic bomb and tests it out over one or more US cities are Americans going to grab their pitch forks and go after the media ?

People think this is not going to happen . People think it’s Israel that is going to get nuked . The leaders in Iran have said many many times that they plan on taking out the BIG SATAN (United States) first before going after the LITTLE SATAN (Israel). Our media covers Obama’s tail constantly and never reports this kind of stuff .

What’s is it going to take for Americans to realize that the media and the people in the White House are traitors that do not give a rats behind about them ?

When they finally do it I am not going to cry because this nation has become full of stupid and needs something terrible like this to happen to finally wise up and wake up.

Iran is really afraid of an Obama second term. Next time Iran will not only send a drone into International airspace, but they will fire it at one of our ships. They will push this all the way knowing that Obama will do little to stop it. In the meantime, a Russian nuclear sub is skirting our coastline and the Chinese are arming their first nuclear subs. No, we have nothing to fear from an Obama second term, and apparently, neither do our enemies.

But last week, we were hearing about how nicey nicey Iran is being with the US. It is so good that the Pentagon is so forthcoming with this information. Maybe they were too busy getting out of the path of the storm of all storms and then getting back in to the rubble.

When will Valerie Jarrett's puppet, Barry Hussein Soetoro, surrender to the Iranians?

If that action would immediately get obama, Soros and his Va Jay Jay to where they want to go, which is One World domination with America at the bottom, they would submit to Iran immediately. Not enough support yet and they may not have completed their due diligence with China and Russia (how they world will be divvied up).

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.

What good is it then?
