    iPhone?

    I would suggest the footage came from a drone...similar to the one that was shot down or the Reaper that was also attempted to be downed when observing one of the tankers.
    and this is the quality of camera the US use in 2019 on security drones?

    I agree. The conspiracy of what the US are claiming and all of those believing it without any conclusive evidence.

    Perhaps you can explain why the security services with the highest budget in the world can't muster anything better than a low resolution black and white camera when it comes to recording drone security footage?

    At least they had better quality footage back then.

    Of course not. I'm just not gullible enough to swallow the official line with such questionable "evidence".

    Did you watch the video I posted on the previous page? It may be of interest to you.

    Maybe it was taken from many miles away at high zoom? Dunno. The quality of photo will depend on many factors.

    I watched as much as I could bear. It's all part of the conspiracy that I'm very excited about.

    Very excited indeed. I can't wait to see what happens in the end.

    How do we decode this? Does this mean that the US downed their own drone so they could say that they forgive Iran for making a mistake?

    Or did the US down it mistakenly?

    I'm rubbish at conspiracies.

    Backtracking as soon as Iran mentions the UN.

    It's all just an exciting conspiracy though right?

    Shame you didn't bother to watch the whole video. Education is key when it comes to these things.

    Who is backtracking from what exactly?

    It's all very exciting, I agree.

    Fake news is not education.

    Iran releases a statement saying they'll take it up with the UN and Trump wastes no time coming out with "well.... maybe it was an honest mistake."

    The US are full of it.

    So there's no conspiracy?

    That's disappointing.

    If you ignore the fact that they lied, then subsequently shat it as soon as Iran released that statement, then I suppose you can pretend there was nothing dodgy going on here. Enjoy remaining in that bubble.

    So there was a conspiracy, but someone called someone's bluff, and the conspiracy was no more?

    That's a pish conspiracy.

    You'd think these conspiracy inventors would be able to think a few steps ahead, eh? But mibbes no.

    I just wish I hadn't got all excited in the first place.

    Don't worry, they have many more things in the pipeline to try and provoke Iran into a war. Something you'd have known about if you had watched the video of them openly admitting that they do it.

    Well i'm sure the US could provide the tracking data to back up their claim, but I have a feeling they won't....
    Or then again maybe they will...

    That's good to hear. I can't wait.

    Are you as disappointed as me that there wasn't a conspiracy like you said there was?

    I did a reverse image search online to see exactly where this picture was sourced from. Seems to only appear on a handful of dodgy foreign sites. There's been absolutely no mention of it in US or UK media.

    Seems to me the image provided is good enough for most people to make some sort of judgment one way or the other, but probably not good enough for those out there who will not believe anything the US provides in the form of evidence anyway.

    So you're saying that they deliberately made public an awful quality version of the video, because they didn't want people to know that in this day and age, it's easy and cheap to stick a HD camera on a drone?

    It looks like more reliable data than the hand-drawn effort released by the Foreign Minister of Iran

    https://twitter.com/JZarif/status/1141772824086028288

    I'd love to imagine what your response would have been if the US released a hand-drawn flight plan that showed the drone was always above international waters.

    If it's "US released". Then why hasn't it been picked up by CNN? Or Fox News? Or any other major news outlet in the US? You'd think it be worth mentioning. No mention of it on the BBC, Sky News or any other major news outlets here in the UK either.

    Does that not strike you as odd?

    Thought I made a fair point - I think the intelligence gathering services don't generally care to share everything with Joe Public for obvious reasons ... you got the image, make of it what you will, as you are plainly doing ...

    The obvious reason being that a more detailed version may not show what they're claiming?

    Will the New York Times suffice?

    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...drone-map.html

    The original image is credited to the USDoD.

    But I agree with you. It IS odd that it's not being more widely covered.
