Oh, the more it changes, the more it stays the same. At least this time there's no pilot involved.
A "stealth drone" operating somewhere in Western Afghanistan, (i.e. along the border with Iran), has been "lost", (don't you just love the euphemisms?), and apparently recovered by the Iranians largely intact.
I think we all know what happened. The CIA was spying on the Iranians with this stealth drone, and either they crashed it, or it malfunctioned. But of course our government can't just come out and say that. For some reason. Apparently, Washington is highly allergic to plain truth.

Oh, what schadenfreude!
