Drone we lost in Iran

Some things don't make a lot of sense...

You would think with all the super secret hi-tech gizmos we have installed in this MOST SECRET piece of military hardware that there would be on board self destruct systems that would blow the thing to dust bits if it was out of communication or disabled in some way. At least if it were booby trapped to blow up whom ever gets ther hands on it, all the little bitty pieces would take a long time to reverse engineer all the good bits they got their hands on...

but no we give them the whole darned thing in one big lovely ready to fly piece....

Sounds like a pretty big screwup on our part!!!

Even worse is how they even managed to take control of our software in the first place. I mean, its not even like they shot it down or anything. They just saw it flying and went "OHBOY, Free stealth-tech! Yay, Christmas early!" and took it. I mean, you'd think that such high technology would at least have some good anti-hacker defense systems onboard, yeah? Not to be racist or anything, but either Iran has surprisingly good computer engineers, or we're just stupid.

Lowest overpriced bidder with lack of accountability?

Maybe it isn't really all that high tech after all and not worth the hassle.
