Reports: US drone shot down over Iran nuke site - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - Iran - msnbc.com Lawmaker claims unmanned spy plane was gathering information about the plant A U.S. drone was shot down while flying over a nuclear facility in Iran, according to reports in the Iranian media. Iran's Fars news agency reported that lawmaker Ali Aqazadeh Dafsari, a member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, had confirmed the unmanned spy plane was flying near the Fordo nuclear enrichment plant in Qom province when it was brought down by Revolutionary Guard soldiers. Dafsari told Fars that the drone was trying to gather information about the nuclear facility for the CIA. Not that I doubt it. But how would he know? Fars also said Iranian military officials had claimed to have shot down "several enemy drones" in January. "We have experienced similar incidents many times in the past and there have even been drones belonging to the occupying Zionist regime (Israel), the United States and Britain which have been shot down in the Persian Gulf during the past 7 years," Fars quoted a senior military official as saying at the time. This is a little disapointing. If it was there from the CIA. Why? What ever happened to using spies? And don't our drones use stealth tech?
