Iran claims released footage is from downed U.S. drone

Iran says it has decoded and released footage from a U.S. drone that it downed more than a year ago.

The black and white aerial footage, Iran claims was from a RQ-170 spy plane, was aired by Iranian news agencies and placed on YouTube.

A man, identified in Iranian media as Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, narrates parts of the footage.

    Drones would go down somewhere or the other and others would try getting their hands on the tech

    A drone doesn't have to be the last thing that the USA ever devises.
    We're chock full of imagination.

      YEP! There are so many things that we probably have, and don't know about! Look at the SR 71 blackbird, F117, B2, M-1, weapons that DID NOT exsist, until they "came out of the closet"! Just think about OUR drones. Flying over Iraq, Aftanistan, Pakistan, on & on, and the "pilots" are sitting in an air conditioned room somewhere in the U. S. A.!
