    I assume Trump can provide evidence the Drone was in international airspace
    Why hasn’t he?


    Russia says downed US drone was in Iranian air space, contradicting key claim by Washington

    A US Drone was in Iranian air space when it was shot down, the secretary of the country’s Security Council has said.

    Speaking at a briefing for journalists in Jerusalem, Nikolai Patrushev also said evidence presented by the US alleging Tehran was behind attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman was of poor quality and unprofessional.

    Thanks for posting this as I have have been wondering the same thing ever since the downing of the drone.

    The US has consistently 'claimed' the drone was in international air space BUT have failed to provide any proof of said claim.

    Trump needs put up, or shut up.

    Seems they say they can
    Russia is calling our President a liar.
    The US has GPS data on the drone showing location, speed, bearing and time stamp

    If Trump was willing to take military action over it, why not show we are right?

    You didn't have a problem when Trump believed Russia over US Intelligence.

    Trump called off the air strike at the last minute because he said it was not worth 150 lives

    Could it have been that he learned Russia could show our drone was in Iranian airspace?
