Iran is not playing nice. Iran has aired decoded footage that was aired on state TV/radio that shows a CIA spy drone (a RQ-170 spy plane) that was downed in 2011. The black-and-white footage shows an airport and city, possibly a U.S. drone base. Of course Obama administration initially claimed that Iran’s claims were not true then, later, in a diplomatic disaster, publicly asked Iran to give the drone back.
Meanwhile, again embarrassing an obviously impotent United States diplomatic effort, Iran's highest authority, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, refused Vice President’s offer direct talks.
"Some naive people like the idea of negotiating with America, however, negotiations will not solve the problem. If some people want American rule to be established again in Iran, the nation will rise up to face them. American policy in the Middle East has been destroyed and Americans now need to play a new card. That card is dragging Iran into negotiations." ~ Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
Of course, the Obama administration’s schizophrenic policy on Iran has given Iran the diplomatic upper hand and shaken up our allies, particularly Israel. Iran has maintained an ability to stall for time while developing their nuclear weapons program.
