EXCLUSIVE: DID AN RQ-170 SENTINEL CRASH IN 2008 NEAR NEEDLES, CA RESULT IN THE DRONE’S SELF DESTRUCT SYSTEM BEING REMOVED?

MAJOR UPDATE! Look here after reading below: http://aviationintel.com/2013/02/06/iron-posts-full-documentary-about-rq-170-sentinel-capture-including-pictures-from-its-recovery/ I stand by my earlier statements 100% concerning the real possibility that Iranian and possibly Russian and Chinese scientists have penetrated the RQ-170’s memory banks, which like the aircraft itself, may very … Read the rest of this entry

INTERVIEW FROM LAST THURSDAY WITH WABC’S JOHN BATCHELOR REGARDING IRAN’S ATTEMPT AT SHOOTING DOWN A US PREDATOR DRONE
