And I thought I couldn't be surprised anymore:
The Obama administration said it has delivered a formal request to Iran for the return of a U.S. surveillance drone captured by Iranian armed forces, but is not hopeful that Iran will comply. President Obama said Monday that the U.S. wants the top-secret aircraft back. "We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said during a White House news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday.
But wait, it gets better:
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Panetta said they're not optimistic about getting the drone back because of recent Iranian behavior that Clinton said indicated "that the path that Iran seems to be going down is a dangerous one for themselves and the region." [...] "Given Iran's behavior to date we do not expect them to comply but we are dealing with all of these provocations and concerning actions taken by Iran in close concert with our closest allies and partners," she said.
Yes, and not only do these nefarious Iranians provoke our peace-loving country by capturing the drone we were using to spy on them, they also refuse to return the bullets, bombs and poison we and/or Israel have been using to murder their nuclear scientists! Why, I haven't seen such a shocking disregard for international norms of behavior since Iraq chose to let children play with our unexploded cluster bombs rather than returning them to the nearest U.S. base.
