A view behind the veil of secrecy and disinformation reveals an imminent danger. The following is a fictional preview of coming events?
RQ-170 Sentinal by Ulysses Nico DAgris
"This is an intelligence disaster!" bellowed Israeli Defense Forces General Avi Gold. "General Amir Ali Hajizadeh aerospace chief of the Revolutionary Guards announced that they have developed a new armed drone that can fly 2,000 kilometers," He read from an AP report. "You understand that would put Israel as well as Afghanistan within range."
"We place little credence on what comes out of Iran," said CIA Director of Intelligence Clifford Collins.
"Maybe you should! His description closely resembles your RQ-170 Sentinel"" said Mossad Director Nahum Shavit.
"We cannot confirm nor deny those reports," retorted CIA Directorate of Science and Technology Donna Simmons.
""Which they captured with the help of Russian and Chinese engineers, probably through a hardware back door in an integrated circuit manufactured in China!"
"You can't deny they have possession of one of your drones and they reverse engineered it to build a new and improved version that flew into our airspace!" said General Gold. "Fortunately this one was not armed."
"I think you are exaggerating the role that U.S. contributed""
"Let us review the timeline: Back in 1998 VP Al Gore relaxed the MIL-Spec 883-C2 standards, allowing contractors to install components manufactured from foreign sources. On 6 December 2011 Iran captured the LQ-120 Sentry spy drone. On 6 October 2012 our air force shot down a drone over the Negev Desert, which was probably heading for our nuclear reactor in Dimona."
"You must admit the actions of the US government put the citizens of Israel as well as NATO troops in Afghanistan in jeopardy," said General Gold.
"By the way, our government honored your request. We collected all the downed parts we could find in the Negev soon after we shot down the drone clone. We brought digital photographs for your review. We invite your engineers to inspect the wreckage in our facility in Tel Aviv," said Mossad Director Mr. Shavit. "That is if you want to see how accurately they copied your RQ-170."
"As you may know we are in the process of upgrading our drones with new hardware"" said Ms. Donna Simmons,
"Yes, we are aware of your replacement of Chinese telemetry circuit boards with homemade versions for your Sentinels," said IDF General Avi Gold.
"Our satellite and other assets are in
working order"" said Ms Simmons.
