What did we know, when did we know it...

...and why weren't we told BEFORE the election?

"...Iran fired on an unarmed U.S. drone last week as it was hovering in international airspace, the Pentagon announced Thursday.

Spokesman George Little said the incident occurred Nov. 1 at 4:50 a.m. ET. He said the unarmed, unmanned drone was conducting "routine surveillance" over the Persian Gulf when it was "intercepted" by Iran. He said the MQ1 Predator drone, which was not hit, was not in Iranian airspace.

On Twitter, Fox News' Jennifer Griffin follows up by saying the attack on the American drone by Iran was not revealed until after the election because it was a "classified" mission.

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..."

Wow, seems how the "classified" mission was only listed as such for a week - from Nov 1st to Nov 8th.

I guess they didn't want to scare us into making a wrong decision at the polls...
