An Iranian non-profit company says it will honor U.S. President Barack Obama's request that Iran return a drone that crashed there last year.
But instead of the actual drone, the company says it will send miniature toy versions. A lot of them.
"We plan to send a full squadron of 12 to the White House for President Obama as a present," said Reza Kioumarsi, a spokesman for the Aaye Art Group, a Tehran-based non-profit, non-governmental company that makes novelty items.
The company is trying to determine what Obama's favorite color is before sending the drones, which are 1/80th the size of the real drone, Kioumarsi said.
In December, Obama said the United States has asked Iran to return the highly classified RQ-170 Sentinel drone.
"We've asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said at the time.
This is probably not the response Obama was seeking.FULL STORY
