Shocker: Iran Fired At A US Drone, And The Obama Administration Hid That Information Until After The Election

I'm just astonished to learn this.

Iran fired on an unarmed U.S. drone last week as it was hovering in international airspace, the Pentagon announced Thursday.

Spokesman George Little said the incident occurred Nov. 1 at 4:50 a.m. ET. He said the unarmed, unmanned drone was conducting "routine surveillance" over the Persian Gulf when it was "intercepted" by Iran. He said the MQ1 Predator drone, which was not hit, was not in Iranian airspace.

Little said the U.S. government has protested to the Iranians.

But they didn't protest to the Americans. I guess they forgot to inform the Americans. They remembered to inform the Iranians of their displeasure. But the Americans? Must have slipped their minds.

I've got my Astonished Face on. My eyes are all like "Whaaa...?" and my mouth's all "Huhhh...?"
