Obama Gets Tough: Hey, Iran, Could We Have Our Drone Back Now?

That'll work.

Video below. Obama says "We have asked for it back [emphasis actually in the original; he stresses that word].... We'll see how the Iranians respond."

The Iranians have said "We'll get that right out to you, just give us a chance to put it in a box and get the correct postage."

No one returns the symbol of aggression to the party that sought secret and vital intelligence related to the national security of a country, Salami said.

That sounds different in the original Persian, though.

Reportedly, Obama was presented with three plans to recover and/or (more likely) destroy the drone, but he rejected them all.

Because he felt this could be "perceived" as an act of war. Um, it's our property. It landed, I'm guessing, in open space (odds are -- the world is mostly open space).
