    Who knows, they might have had help from other interested parties.

    Might have???

    I'll wager REAL $$$ that IF the 'secrets' of the drone were compromised, that 'other' interested parties definitely had a hand in the 'cracking' of the secrets.

    I hope they try to fly it and it just flies off into the sunset, to join the North Korean rocket.

    How did they get the thing intact? It obviously didn't crash.

    I also remember hearing a story that the entire fleet of Predators is infected with keyloggers. Perhaps someone hacked the drone and brought it to a controlled landing on one of Iran's runways?

    I hope they're not using foreign-made computers in these things, but they probably are.

    I recall reading that IF the drone loses contact with 'home', it will fly a pre-determined 'script' until it runs out of fuel, then will land.

    Where will it land???? In 'enemy' territory!:wow:

    Those stupid, stone-age, cave-dwelling, camel jockeys couldn't decode Pig Latin.
