PolygamousRanchKid (1290638) writes "U.S. asks Iran to return spy drone The Defense secretary says he doesn't expect Tehran to comply. Iran says it is planning to clone and mass produce the bat-winged craft for use against its enemies.

Parviz Sarvari, head of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy committee, said that Iran is "in the final steps of breaking into the aircraft's secret code."

U.S. officials said they don't believe Iran's scientists can reverse-engineer the craft's stealth design and skin coating, which help it evade detection on radar. But they expressed concern that Iran may figure out the drone's flight path, and thus learn the CIA's surveillance targets inside Iran. U.S. officials also are concerned that Iran could offer the drone to China or other U.S. rivals or adversaries that are building their own stealth aircraft, including drones."
