Iran: Yes, We Hacked the U.S.'s Drone, and Here's How We Did It
"You are going to tell me what I want to know, it's just a matter of how much you want it to hurt." — Jack Bauer, 24
It sounds like a scene out of a spy movie -- highly trained national paramilitary operatives harshly testing a foreign agent until they break and do their bidding. But that's exactly what Iran is claiming it did to a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency spy drone.
In an unconfirmed, but fascinating report in The Christian Science Monitor, an unnamed "Iranian engineer" claims that Iran used its torture testing from past crashed drones to break the captured drone and bend it to the command of the Iranian, forcing it into a soft landing so they could probe the secrets of its fully intact body.
