Iran Will Not Return Downed American Drone

[ n p r ] 11 Dec

Iran will not return the downed American surveillance drone, RQ-170, captured by its armed forces, a senior commander of the country's elite Revolutionary Guard said Sunday.

"No one returns the symbol of aggression to the party that sought secret and vital intelligence related to the national security of a country," Gen. Hossein Salami, deputy head of the Guard said in an interview on the state run TV.

However, Gen Salami refused to provide more details of Iran's claim to have captured the CIA-operated aircraft.
"A party that wins in an intelligence battle doesn't reveal its methods. We can't elaborate on the methods we employed to intercept, control, discover and bring down the pilotless plane."
