Iran Flies Propaganda; US Denies Drone Downed
The United States has denied an Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ claim that they downed a US spy drone, possibly part of the regime’s propaganda in the wake of mounting evidence pointing to a feverish race to develop a nuclear weapon.
“The U.S. Navy has fully accounted for all unmanned air vehicles (UAV) operating in the Middle East region. We have no record that we have lost any ScanEagles recently," said a US Navy spokesman.
