An Iranian SU-25 tried-unsuccessfully-to down a US MQ-1 Predator in international airspace in the Persian Gulf. This information was not released at the time, November 1, because the Predator was on a highly classified mission. But the news comes out today, 2 days after the election. What, did the mission suddenly become less sensitive in the last 8 days? Was there some discontinuity that occurred on, say, late-Tuesday night? Wonder what that could be.
In another strange coincidence, on Wednesday morning Boeing announced large layoffs as part of a massive restructuring of its defense division. Recall that Lockheed had faded its plans to layoff 123,000 workers until after the election under pressure from the administration.
