Breaking reports that Iran fired on a U.S. drone in the Persian Gulf.

Reports indicate this happened last week.

LAST WEEK? RT @bretbaier Pentagon official confirms Iran last week fired on a US surveillance drone flying over international waters

— Mike Nelson (@dc_mike) November 8, 2012

Gee, wonder why this was kept silent?

Iran fired on our drone on Thursday of last week. That’s when Obama resumed campaigning. I’m sure non-disclosure was just an oversight.

Twitchy will monitor and update with developments.

Update: Twitter users react to the news that this information was held until after the election. By the most transparent administration EVAH.

What happened to the most transparent presidency in history? #drone #iran #campaignerinchief

Iran fired at a US drone last week, according to Fox. Guess that tidbit was held until after the election.

— Cliff (@clifftx) November 8, 2012

Why look at that. Iran fired on a US drone last week, and we didn’t hear anything about it until after the election. Shock!

— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) November 8, 2012

So, Iran fired on US drone on November 1 and WH did not bother to comment. Transparency in fullest.Sanctions work???

— Ryszard Marciniak (@marcin4055) November 8, 2012

Pentagon says Iran fired on US drone — on 11-1 — kept it secret until after ElectionDay. An Act of war?

— toddstarnes (@toddstarnes) November 8, 2012

Not surprising at all. It also would not be surprising if some media outlets knew ahead of time and sat on it.

Thanks media, for telling us today that Iran fired on our drone last week.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) November 8, 2012

we already know the media stayed silent on #Benghazi at govt request. Not too far of a jump to think this Iran/drone issue went same way

— Hugh Briss(@FoolishReporter) November 8, 2012

Another 3:00 a.m. phone call. And Obama was again too busy campaigning and canoodling.

Also awesome? We get attacked, AGAIN and do NOTHING about it. freebeacon.com/cnn-iran-fired… #notawesome

— Kemberlee Kaye (@red_red_head) November 8, 2012

How many times have we been attacked in the last two months and done nothing about it? freebeacon.com/cnn-iran-fired…

— Kemberlee Kaye (@red_red_head) November 8, 2012

Hey, maybe he’ll blame this on a crappy Youtube video, too.

Update: Iran’s actions are not being referred to as an “act of war”:

@dodspokesman won’t call Iranian fighter jets firing on US drone an “act of war.”fxn.ws/TxUqQu

— Jennifer Griffin (@JenGriffinFNC) November 8, 2012

Of course. Just a little friendly fire from Iran at a drone that was not in Iranian airspace.

And here’s the Defense Department’s explanation for keeping the story quiet before the election:

DoD didn’t reveal Iranian fighter jets fired at US drone in days before the US Presidential election because drone on “classified” mission.

— Jennifer Griffin (@JenGriffinFNC) November 8, 2012

Uh-huh.
