Did you read that Obama asked the Iranians if they would give it back. not making that up.
Worth a try i suppose. fat chance they will say yes
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is pressing his request that Iran return the U.S. surveillance drone captured by the country's armed forces.
Obama said he wouldn't comment "on intelligence matters that are classified." But, he said during a White House news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki that the U.S. wants the top-secret aircraft back. "We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said.
Iran TV reported earlier Monday that Iranian experts were in the final stages of recovering data from the RQ-170 Sentinel, which went down in Iran earlier this month. Tehran has cited the capture as a victory for Iran and displayed the nearly intact drone on state TV. U.S. officials say the aircraft malfunctioned and was not brought down by Iran.
