    Tavarez, I would love to see Obama succeed. I just don't think he's realistic enough.

    Translation:

    US shot down Iranian plane.

    The US Army shot down an Iranian plane on febuary 25th.
    This happened over Iraqi territory. The Iranian plane was unmanned.

    "An unmanned Iranian plane crossed the border, which was picked up by an American radar. The Americans intercepted the plane and an American plane shot it down." So said the head of Military Operations at the Iraqi ministry of Defence.

    Update 16:53
    The American Army is saying that the Iranian plane did not "accidentally" enter Iraqi airspace.


    Haven't heared this on any of the newsstations but i think you guys will have better contacts then I do

    The international herald tribune caught wind of it

    U.S. confirms downing Iranian drone over Iraqi territory
    By Rod Nordland and Alissa J. Rubin

    Monday, March 16, 2009
    BAGHDAD: The U.S. military confirmed on Monday that it shot down an Iranian remotely piloted aircraft over Iraqi territory, in what is believed to be the first incident of its type during the war.
    ‘‘Coalition aircraft shot down an Iranian Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) February 25, 2009, approximately 100 kilometers, 60 miles, northeast of Baghdad,’’ said Col. James Hutton, spokesman for the U.S. military commander in Iraq.
    Although that location would put the drone relatively close to the Iran-Iraq border, Colonel Hutton denied speculation that it had simply strayed across the border accidentally.
    ‘‘This is not true,’’ he said. ‘‘It was in Iraqi airspace and tracked one hour and 10 minutes before it was engaged.’’ Colonel Hutton added that coalition jet fighters shot it down without causing any collateral damage.
    The U.S. military has long accused Iran of meddling in Iraqi affairs, arming militants and fueling sectarian strife. In recent months, however, the Iranians have refrained from overtly supplying weapons to Iraqi factions, partly as a show of cooperation with a largely friendly Iraqi government. Reuters quoted Maj. Gen. Abdul Aziz Mohammed Jassim, operations chief at the Iraqi Defense Ministry, as saying he believed the aircraft wandered into Iraqi territory by ‘‘mistake.’’
    The drone may well have been more interested in Iranian dissidents in Iraq than in American or Iraqi military operations. The location where it was shot down is not far from Camp Ashraf, where 3,500 followers of the Iranian dissident group People’s Mujahedeen of Iran Organization are based. Camp Ashraf is about 100 kilometers northeast of Baghdad.
    Iraqi troops have surrounded the camp in the past week and clashed with refugees there. Iran has long insisted that Iraq close the camp and expel the militants, but U.S. officials have intervened and prevented that. Since January, when the Iraqi military took over security of the area from the Americans, several Iraqi officials have vowed it would soon be closed.
    The U.S. military identified the drone as an Ababil-3, an Iranian-developed drone, launched from a truck catapault and recovered by parachute.
    It is equipped with onboard video camera and transmission equipment.
    The U.S. military also announced that a soldier died Monday from wounds sustained in a combat operation in Baghdad, the first American fatality since March 7.
    Five American soldiers have died in Iraq this month. If that rate continues, March will see the lowest level of U.S. casualties since the war began.
    Last month, 18 coalition soldiers died, according to Iraq Coalition Casualty Count, a nongovernmental organization that tracks military deaths using Defense Department statistics. It was only the first military fatality reported in Baghdad this month.
    Elsewhere in Iraq, violence in Mosul continued, largely blamed on Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia. In the eastern part of the city, a suicide car bomb targeted a police patrol, killing one officer and wounding two others, a security source said. The source added that unknown gunmen killed a woman and wounded her sister at the Tal Afar bus station in west Mosul.
    In Kirkuk Province, unknown gunmen attacked a communication tower belonging to Asiacell, a mobile telephone company, killing one guard and wounding another.
