Whose Drone is it Anyway?

Speculation and rumor are rife in Israel as the question is asked, “Whose drone was it?”

Part of what is driving the rumor mill is the minimally released information from the IDF, the very serious question of how the drone flew so long over Israel uncontested, and what appears to be a leaked IDF photo that censored some markings on the UAV which may have indicated who may have either built or sent it.

The mainstream explanation is that the drone was sent by Iran via Hezbollah in Lebanon to spy on Dimona or to test Israel’s defenses.

A former Lebanese general said on Iranian TV that the UAV was an American drone that may have lost its way.

One Israeli rumor-monger said the drone was American made, and of the kind that may have been sold to Egypt.

On  Sunday morning, the Lebanese TV channel “Al Meyadin’, which is associated with Hezbollah, claimed the UAV was launched and controlled by Hezbollah.

The IDF still hasn’t said if the drone was remote-controlled or using a pre-programmed path and a GPS.

But the IDF should know the answers to at least some of these important questions already, so once it decides to release the information to the public, at least some of the rumors will go away.

What follows next is a decision on how Israel will react to the enemy incursion, once the enemy is identified.

  1. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    Euro media are also reporting now that this was an American drone based in a USAF base in Saudi Arabia sent to gather intelligence on Israeli prep for a potential strike on Iran. That follows on the heels of a report yesterday from Euro media that the US Naval build up in the Persian Gulf is NOT to secure the Straights but rather to prep and stop an Israeli attack. Understandably, obama compliant media would not publish either this close to an election. It would however explain the interim silence of the IAF (under pressure from Barack not to upset the 12th imam wannabe?) and from the US DoD.

  2. Liad Bar-el says:

    What you've said seems plausible but there is one glitch. The Obama Islamic Jihad administration gets all of the information they need from our DM anyway without Bibi's permission; so, there is no need for a USA UAV fly-over.

  3. Louise Kittle says:

    I truly hope it was not a USA drone sent to spy on Israel. There are millions of Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish alike, who love your wonderful counry and will stand by you as a good friend should do. There are many, many like me who are voting to get Obama out of office as our country canot survive another four years of his socialist ideals and bad atitude toward the Israelis. God bless both our great nations… An American
