WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Monday said the U.S. government had requested the return of a spy drone downed over Iran but declined to discuss if its loss could compromise U.S. national security.
"We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said during a joint news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki after the two met at the White House.

I hope he asked nicely.
I met someone that used to shoot hoops with him at Punahou .
He was always calling fouls and walking off the court .
The pattern continues
Wow, you think these a-holes in Iran will listen to our Dear Leader ? We should have the drone destroyed or better yet, why wasn’t it designed in a way that it could be blown up with built in explosives ?
Since it is you B.O they will get right on it,they will return the drone in a jiffy..just need to get all the details on how it is made and what it can do..
That’s nothing. I met someone whose friend met someone who used to cut his hair. He never left a tip. Unbelievable.
I am sure Iran will get right on it!
I wonder if Obama said “pretty please” ?
The answer is to go and take it. Ask for its return? LOL, that Obama is such a joker. The anser is to take it.
If you miss with the first assault, then hit at it again.
“You gotta ask me nicely.”
I said “please”
Probably by giving them some 60s era military hardware.
Oh, sure - since he's the "most brilliant man ever elected to the presidency", I have no doubt that the Iranians will send back our multi-Billion dollar Top Secret drone and turn over their nuclear weapon technologies at the same time.
That idiot couldn't manage a shoe department at J.C. Penneys during a school rush..
You are absolutely right. Why was it not destroyed immediately?
Or is the bastard playing a game, giving Iran a functional drone and telling us it was captured?
While he’s at it, he can ask the North Koreans to return the USS Pueblo. The likelihood of both being returned are very remote.
Why he didn’t take it out, I’ll never know. He was apparently given military options to do so, but opted to meekly ask for it back? I’m surprised he had the guts to take out bin Laden. What a complete pansy.
Pretty please with sugar on top of it: Would you Iranian Brothers please return that secret drone to the Islam supporting USA!? Allah be praised!!!!!
Did he say pretty please?
