    So this occured on Nov 1, but the Pentagon is only coming out with it now?

    Im not one for conspiracies, but I wonder why the delay?

    "The incident was not disclosed sooner because the military does not discuss classified surveillance missions, but agreed to answer questions after news reports revealed the shooting."

    I guess I have my answer, but it still seems like interesting timing, post election day.

    I suspect many here would want us to shoot down the drone as well.
    The drone was not shot down. They fired and missed, probably on purpose. It was definitely a message.

    "Shot down" was used by two different posters in this thread. Just getting the facts out there.
