I've Been Thinking:
It is now clear that Hezbollah launched the drone that the Israelis shot down last week. The announcement came directly from Hezbollah head Hassan Nasrallah who said that they sent it and that the Iranians made it.
The drone was in the air over Israel for at least 15 minutes before it was downed.
There have been rumors that the aerial vehicle was a RQ-170 also known as the Beast of Kandahar. It is a bat drone, so named because it is almost 15ft long with a wingspan of over 39ft. It looks like a monster bat.
This is the type of drone that Iran hijacked out of the sky. Originally made by Lockheed Martin, Iranian engineers reverse engineered it.
Believe me when I tell you that whatever kind of drone it is, American drone specialists were on the first plane to Israel to reverse engineer it in order to determine the technology the Iranians were able to cull from their bat drone.
The big question is not what Iran saw via the drone but how the drone was controlled and how the material was transmitted back to base.
