Thanks for continuing to toe the conservative conspiracy line. Gbaji will be along shortly to say "Not that Varus is right, but he's totally

, I don't agree with what he's saying. But what I think is telling, is that everyone is so quick to dismiss the possibility that there's something not quite right going on here. And you can't deny that Obama has been taking a soft stance on Iran. What concerns me, is that the liberal media isn't investigating the issue, and that they and this administration are still trying to systematically dismantle the military. You can bet that if a Republican was in office, this wouldn't have happened."
I dunno. Something like that, I'd wager.
So the president showed up and told the airman flying the thing to look the other way while he hit the reset button?
I'm not sure what part you're having a problem believing. I doubt anybody is arguing that we're spying on Iran, so there isn't much point in arguing why it was there in the first place. As far as "losing" it, it happens. It's a covert ops device designed to be undetected, meaning it's probably controlled by a LoS satellite connection. If the LoS was lost for whatever reason it may have changed course, meaning it wasn't where it should have been when the LoS was clear. Kind of hard to locate and reconnect with something specifically designed to be invisible to technology if you don't know where it went.
As far as dismantling the military, it's the popular course of action right now. The people don't like the war and they don't have any money. So, end the war and take the money from the military. Easy reelection. What people don't seem to understand is that if you significantly downsize the military, all those people have to get jobs elsewhere. And there are programs in place that give preferential treatment to retired military, meaning an even smaller pool to play in.
