SILLY: Obama Politely Asks Iran to Give Us Our Drone Back

Hey, give us back our spy plane!

President Obama publicly acknowledged for the first time yesterday that Iran is holding a special stealth US drone that went down over its territory.

“We have asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama told reporters at a White House press conference alongside Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

The United States doesn’t have diplomatic relations with Iran, and tensions have escalated following US-led efforts for further sanctions in response to Iran’s nuclear program.

Critics chided Obama for publicly appealing to Iran to return the spy plane.

“The president should not be in the position of looking silly,” said John Pike of Global “He should not be in the position of publicly making requests where he knows the answer is going to be no. I would say that he looks silly.”
