President Obama on Monday appeared to confirm that Iran has in its possession a secret U.S. spy drone.
"I'm not going to comment on intelligence matters that are classified," Obama said during a Monday press conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki. "We have asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond."
Pentagon and Obama administration officials previously had only said such a drone went missing after a mission in western Afghanistan, near the Iran border.
