According to an article posted by, the Iranian military allegedly shot down an unmanned U.S. surveillance aircraft. They were extremely vague about the details of the supposed incident, saying that it was shot down when it was trying to cross the borders “during the last few days.”

Oddly enough, when I checked the Islamic Republic News site there was no mention of such an incident. It seems like this would be headline making news in Iran if the event had actually taken place. I expected to see pictures of a smoking pile of rubble in the desert, but there was absolutely nothing there.

Being extremely curious at this point, I found another article posted at CBS, and it said that there were reports of anti-aircraft fire and an explosion near the town of Deilam, about 60 miles from a nuclear facility, but Iranian state television reported that the explosion may have been caused by a fuel tank dropping from an Iranian plane.

The only thing that’s certain about this story is that there seems to be a lot of confusion about what did or didn’t happen.

I do find it ironic that this story popped up on the heels of news that the Russian government is selling mobile anti-aircraft weapons systems to the Iranians, as posted earlier HERE.
