Drones over Iran (3 Mar 18)
Incidents with drones over Iran occur with great frequency. Sometimes it is not clearfrom news media which incident they are talking about.If we believe all the relevant stories out of Iran, what we know so far,
:An Iran drone allegedly buzzed the US air craft carrier Ronald Reagan, accordingto a Russian source.
Iran had Drones before US started using them over Iran.
But due to military secrecy,
adversarial relationships between nations, and lack of good news media coverage, there’s
a lot of uncertainty.US Drones have been overhead Iran at leastsince 2010.
