    I guess it depends on your level of acceptance. By nearly any QC standard, one failure out of one test is pretty poor.

    But the real question that should have been asked is why was our drone flying over Iran?

    The potential 'benefit' is the detection of a nuclear program. So what...what are we going to do about it? Invade? Good luck...that would make Afghanistan look like a walk in the park. Instead, save the billions on the drones program, give me a grand and I'll tell you the Iranians are working on a nuke program.

    The downside? Drone going down in hostile territory (seems like a pretty good chance of that occurring), handing over sensitive technology, and being seen as violating soveriegn air space (something that we might not be to fond of ourselves). In the end, the whole excercise sabotages any liberalized internal movements to combat the Iranian dictatorship.

    Was it under the authorization of Obama? Probably. But I guess I'd take that over the right's need to kick off yet another war.

      Why would you assume that they never tested it before?

      This part is a very valid lead-in to a very interesting discussion....
      If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

        Speaking of which, Newt actually said "regime change" in regards to Iran. I'm not sure which is worse: that there are people who have still learned nothing from the Iraq War and stand by their apocalyptic view of America as a brutalizing empire of conquest, or that there are people like Newt who don't believe a word of it but deliberately ride that horse for personal profit.

          If you're into regime change then you better have your guy all lined up to take the reins and be prepared to stick around a while to be him/her up.

              It's all over but the Nuremberg Rallies.

              The bestest part is it's a time bomb with a hidden timer. Will the Police State fall on immigrants or the Tea Party or Occupy or blacks or atheists or gays. Which way will the Wheel of Hatred turn?

              It's extra exciting when you don't know what's going to happen...

                          Looks like it was Iranian electronic warfare. in this case spoofing GPS. Isn't that the reason why Star Fleet didn't use drone technology in the 23rd century (easily jammed, spoofed). or was it M5 going haywire

                          Basically you can't trust what anyone says, especially the government officials (including ours). And I would take any news story with big grain of salt. I still remember CNN/yahoo printing a story on Merton flying car, apparently without any research or background history.

                          Iranian electronic warfare specialists were able to cut off communications links of the American bat-wing RQ-170 Sentinel, says the engineer, who works for one of many Iranian military and civilian teams currently trying to unravel the drone’s stealth and intelligence secrets, and who could not be named for his safety
