Cheney: Why didn’t Obama just destroy the drone when he had the chance?

posted at 2:35 pm on December 13, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

That’s a good question — and according to former VP Dick Cheney’s contacts, Barack Obama didn’t lack for options to keep the highly-classified drone from falling into the Iranian military’s hands. In an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Cheney wonders why Obama didn’t order an air strike on the downed aircraft while he still had the chance:

“The right response to that would have been to go in immediately after it had gone down and destroy it,” he said on CNN’s “Out Front with Erin Burnett.”

Instead, Cheney said, “he asked nicely for them to return it. They aren’t gonna do that. … Or, they’ll send it back to us in pieces after they’ve gotten all the intelligence out of it they can.” …

Cheney, who served with former President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2009, said he “was told the president had three options on his desk and he rejected all of them.” The options all involved destroying the drone on the ground.

“You can do that from the air,” he said. “And, in effect, make it impossible for them to benefit from having captured that drone.”

Iran doesn’t seem inclined to even return the pieces.  Their defense minister has declared the drone “Iran’s property,” and says they won’t return it to the US — a not-unexpected answer, given the fact that we were using it to spy on them.  Thanks to Obama’s decision to leave the drone intact for the Iranians to seize, there’s little point in denying that fact.

What will the Iranians do with it?  State-run TV in Iran announced that the military plans to reverse engineer it and “mass produce” their own spy drones.  Wired finds that unlikely, even if the Russians and Chinese pitch in to help for their own commercial purposes:

In other words, the Russian, Chinese and Iranian experts will probably try to figure out the “recipe” for the RQ-170′s alloys and non-metal composites, which help minimize the drone’s radar signature, as does its bat-like shape. And that’s where reverse-engineering starts to get complicated. “Someone will figure out the [materials'] composition,” the Boeing engineer explains, “but producing them is entirely a different matter.”

For the drone vivisectionists, it only gets worse. After examining the (alleged) RQ-170′s airframe, they will likely focus on its sensors. We don’t know for sure what devices the Sentinel carries, but it could include video cameras and a ground-mapping radar. The Darpa robot designer says the RQ-170′s radar — if it carries one — could share subsystems with the radars on the latest F-22 and F-35 stealth fighters, which might give U.S. adversaries some insight into how those planes operate, too.

But the designer isn’t too worried. “Even if [the radar] showed up completely intact, they may not know how to use it because they don’t know how to use the software.”

Moreover, the software includes classified anti-tamper measures. At least, it’s supposed to, according to the Boeing engineer. “Dumbest thing in the world if it didn’t.”

Well, perhaps we have nothing to worry about — or perhaps the two nations with the most expertise in copying American military systems will find a way to duplicate that success with the RQ-170.  If so, we have given away a significant strategic and tactical advantage, apparently because the Commander in Chief refused to pull the trigger to safeguard its secrets.

So, you actually believe that defense contractors keep classified information on computer systems directly connected to the internet?

Yeah, you’re credible.

AZfederalist on December 13, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Before displaying your child-like understanding of Chinese cyber-espionage, you might want to look into the reality of what’s happened over the past decade.
No, classified information is according to policy never stored on computers directly connected to the internet.

bayam on December 13, 2011 at 5:08 PM

Trying to decide if you really are as stupid as you come across, or you just play someone that dumb on the internet.

You have contradicted the entire point you were trying to make, namely that the Chinese have hacked into US contractors systems and stolen design secrets for drones and other systems. You then state that it is against policy to store classified (i.e., the actual secrets inherent in the systems under discussion) on computers connected to the internet. So, you can’t have it both ways, either you think design secrets reside on systems accessible to hackers or those design secrets reside on systems not accessible to the internet, but that the Chinese have developed a telepathic link to secure closed networks.

AZfederalist on December 13, 2011 at 6:54 PM

Golf anyone?

Tim_CA on December 13, 2011 at 7:03 PM

That drone wasn’t shot down. It was delivered. Sender resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Av.

Obama’s admission (on page 26 of his book, Dreams from My Father) of dual citizenship (a.k.a. divided allegiance) was all we needed to keep him from becoming Commander-In-Chief. 

Hopefully we can recover and remove this stain on our Constitutional Republic by perp-walking this administration straight onto a flight headed for Gitmo.

NightmareOnKStreet on December 13, 2011 at 7:04 PM

Well good gravy what would you call closing off access to 30% of the world oil supply? Oil prices surged just at the threat of Iran conducting exercises there.

Rancher on December 13, 2011 at 5:28 PM

I think the term “act of war” is probably closer to the right terminology than “act of terrorism”. Especially since the act would be performed by a nation-state.

johnnybgood on December 13, 2011 at 7:54 PM

That’s the way language works, words mean something. I didn’t say it was the world’s oil, I said it was a third of the world’s supply, i.e. 30% of the oil the world buys from that region, 90% of Persian Gulf oil, is shipped through the strait. What right does Iran have to disrupt shipping in international waters and preventing other countries from selling their oil? None, it would be an act of war towards Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar , Bahrain, Kuwait and Iraq.

Rancher on December 13, 2011 at 5:50 PM

Huh. The United States is conspicuously absent from that list.

Del Dolemonte on December 13, 2011 at 5:57 PM

Thanks for providing a graph that supports the facts I gave: the majority of our oil comes from North America.

Again, what if the straight was closed by a 3rd party? Or what if the straight was closed by Iran even though Kuwait and Iraq wanted to continue exporting their oil (which I assume they would). Too bad?

Apparently you’re not capable of discerning the difference between a policy and the actual implementation of online systems, which should have been easy to comprehend from my last post. So let me spell it out for you- design secrets have been stolen en masse. It’s a widely held fact. You can’t seem to actually fact check before making repeat, stupid comments.

bayam on December 13, 2011 at 9:03 PM

About 50% comes from Canada and Mexico, and most of the rest is from OPEC.

Del Dolemonte on December 13, 2011 at 4:59 PM

If 50% of our oil comes from Mexico and Canada; adding that to what the USA produces would make Dante’s statement a fact.
Last time I checked … Mexico is part of North America.

Why didn’t Obama just destroy the drone when he had the chance?

Because this President’s mission is to destroy the United States to the greatest extent that he can without being impeaches.

Lets be realistic.

Politricks on December 13, 2011 at 3:31 PM

OK. REALISTICALLY: It was our national security teams who presented president pull-ups with three plans to GO IN AND DESTROY OR RETRIEVE THE DRONE. NOT just a random bunch of bloggers, commentors and out-of-office politicians.

And all your lil barry could do was ASK for our drone to be returned.

unless you actually believe the Chinese are capable of designing such advanced technology on their own.

bayam on December 13, 2011 at 5:15 PM

So, you think the Chinese are stupid? Intellectually incapable of designing modern fighter aircraft?

BTW; the newest Chinese fighter – the J-20 – which is being touted as “stealthy”, isn’t. While it does have some ‘stealthy’ facets to its design, it is far from a true “stealth” aircraft. But they’re getting there – while we’ve just rolled the LAST F-22 off the production line.

Solaratov on December 14, 2011 at 12:25 AM

BDavis on December 13, 2011 at 10:19 PM

?F4 drones are used as target.
Why would a self destruct attached to the fuselage wouldn’t that require a pilot or operator to activate it. Meaning they would have to blow themselves up, kinda dumb ya think?

Who would fly an F4 drone knowing that fighters are going to be shooting missiles at them?
Most likely they told you about how the ejection system works. When used the canopy is blow off by Det cored that is in tubing around the canopy. This det cored is also routed through the avionics bays in and around classified avionics, destroying the classified avionics When air crew is ejected.

Was there a yellow arrow pointing at a spot that says Rescue?

Next point in order to remotely self destruct a drone it would have to have a data link tween the drone and pilot. This drone is reported to have gone down cuz it lost it’s data link tween the drone and pilot. That kinda sorta is a problem no data link, means no way to activate a self destruct through the non-existing data link ya think?

DSchoen on December 14, 2011 at 5:26 AM

wabJockey on December 13, 2011 at 3:14 PM

To be most effective, the weapons we use have to be “safe” for the good guys to employ with confidence.

Yep as an AE CDI my job was to ensure our birds were safe to fly into combat which is not condidered to be a safe thing to do.

the newest Chinese fighter – the J-20 – which is being touted as “stealthy”, isn’t.

That’s what happens when you use stolen F-117 stealth Bomber technology to develop a stealth fighter! The canard is a dead giveaway the J-20 ain’t stealthy!

I’m going to sit over here in my own little world and pretend that the drone Iran has captured was captured because our CIA people wanted it to be captured so that Iran/China/Russia would spend years and millions of dollars on fruitless R & D trying to replicate the functionality of a nonfunctional decoy designed and delivered to look superficially like a real drone but with subtle yet critical flaws that will only become evident after it’s too late.

And this is me sticking my fingers in my ears saying “I can’t hear you tell me the President of the United States just handed over a critical piece of military technology to our most dangerous enemies because he hates America.”

Obama has no intention, or will, to do anything that would upset his plans to negotiate with the crackpot ayatollahs and the miniature political hack they have as a front man.

Maybe it is time for Michelle and the Messiah to schedule an imperial vacation at one of the many Iranian gulf-side resorts. Michelle and the kids could let their hair down, kick back, and shop for the latest fashions in burhkas and run up a huge taxpayer funded bill while Barack and Mahmoud catch up on old times.

All he asks is that that Mahmoud kicks in some full tanks on Air Force One through Six for the return trip.

Del Dolemonte on December 14, 2011 at 10:36 AM

Perhaps we should investigate:

1) How the Iranians knew the drone was present.
2) How they actually hacked the system,
3) Why the self destruct didn’t work
4) How the Iranians had the hardware and software to fly the drone
5) How they were trained to fly the drone.

I am sure that these are not things that just any idiot can do. I’ll bet that it takes practice. It is an idication that our security has been severely compromised. If the Iranians did not have the skills or capactity to do this, who did? Russia? China?

Obama probably didn’t want to start anything now and he didn’t want to endanger his Russian and Chinese friends. He is probably waiting for next summer to create a new Gulf of Tonkin event that will boost his election chances.

newjerseypatriot on December 14, 2011 at 10:58 AM

Because liberals think that America having a technological advantage over our adversaries is somehow unfair. “Iran should be able to fly drones over Kansas if they want”. Where is the line that delineates patriotism from treason?

Maybe you and I have different meanings of the words “handed over”. The drone landed in Iran, and he did nothing. Inaction in this case, is action.
And furthermore, our top secret technology hit the dirt in Iran, and our CIC had NO PLAN to prevent that technology from being compromised! That’s just childish! It’s his JOB for cripe sake! I mean, I know it must be hard to properly plan a covert spying mission over foreign lands, in between his 99th & 100th game of golf, but he could have at least stayed in the meeting until they covered “NOT handing over” our best technologies!

shep29 on December 14, 2011 at 12:55 PM

I don’t understand why the RQ-170 wasn’t destroyed automatically or by remote control? Why would we have to send in special forces or an air strike to get it back or to destroy it?

I can’t find its cost, but I assume it is in the millions. I read it has the capability of self-destruction. If it could be jammed, then that is a design fark that needs to be fixed.

billrowe on December 14, 2011 at 1:17 PM

Yes, let’s send US jet fighters deep into Iran. Let’s risk a US plane being shot down, the pilot killed or taken hostage, and rapid escalation of this event.

Dick is correct. You are not. And we should know with 99% certainty if Iran is capable of intercepting our fighter-bombers and/or cruise missiles before potential conflict as result of a real-life operation would demonstrate if and how operational plans need to be changed. Since we do not normally have a reason to send planes into Iran’s airspace, this is an excellent time to figure it out.

EvilCapitalist on December 14, 2011 at 2:20 PM

Oh and one more thing… Whoever was quoted saying that he’s not very worried as Iranians won’t be able to figure out the software should be fired from whatever high tech position he is in – absolutely every piece of code can and will be reverse engineered in a fairly small amount of time. If Iran does not have such experts, Russia and China are crawling with them.

EvilCapitalist on December 14, 2011 at 2:37 PM

I’d like to know why government specs didn’t include a destruct mechanism just just for cases like this. Incredible. It would have cost a lot less than an ejection seat.

Portia46 on December 14, 2011 at 2:50 PM

Wow, where do I start?

1. Yes, it most certainly would be our problem.

2. Keeping a sea lane of communication open is not waging war. If those that wanted it closed attacked us, then they are the ones waging war.

3. If the prices drop, then demand would increase and prices would follow. You need to go back to review the most basic of microeconomic supply/demand charts.

4. Countries can’t close straits without expecting international retaliation. The world would descend into chaos which would most certainly be a grave threat to our well being. But maybe that’s what you want. Maybe you want America in steep decline because you hate the concept of American exceptionalism.

blink on December 14, 2011 at 12:50 PM

Good grief.

Dante on December 14, 2011 at 3:04 PM

I doubt the Iranians themselves have the capability to fully analyze the electronic carried on the drone, assuming (and hoping) that proper encryption is employed. I would not at all be surprised if the Chinese ambassador to Tehran got a phone call that same night though – and then it’s just a question of what prize (economic, political or even military) they will agree on. Those consequences are far worse.

Captain Obvious on December 14, 2011 at 4:14 PM

What else can be said when someone is going to resort to the ridiculous Why Do You Hate America tactic?

Dante on December 14, 2011 at 7:48 PM

I doubt the Iranians themselves have the capability to fully analyze the electronic carried on the drone, assuming (and hoping) that proper encryption is employed.

This is one of the biggest lies that exist.

Every single strong encryption requires a bootup routine during which a key is entered. If you have a system which you would like to be able to deploy remotely after a power off event, such key would prevent a system form being deployed until the key is entered. As the systems are designed to survive a possible temporary loss of power, strong encryption is not deployed.

EvilCapitalist on December 14, 2011 at 8:10 PM

He did not destroy it because it was a painless method to deliver our technology to his friends. Anything to weaken America. Again, Congress should be demanding impeachment of this vile fraud masquerading as the leader of the free world. But Congress will not impeach because they are all part of the same elitist club…the more he does, they more they benefit.

“In the early years of the twenty-first century, a vile evil
ascended the throne of the American Republic. He came
from obscurity, shrouded in mystery and misdirection.
Like the serpent, he promised all things to all people.
He always said what people wanted to hear. His open
disdain for America, the Constitution, and its governing
principles went unnoticed by the mainstream media,
