    For context: That is a US drone that crashed in the desert in Iraq yesterday. The man taking the selfie in the photo is a popular regional activist named Steven Nabil.

  • Am I the only one that thinks that's a bad idea. Like they would have a 'whoops drone went down in enemy territory' detonate button?

    You're overestimating the complexity of a modern drone. This one went down because it lost comm with home.

    So basically it loses connection and it either goes into landing mode or drops out of the sky? This is 2015, why is there not a return to point of origin command in case of loss of signal? Or in case of lose of GPS and home signal, blow up? That would at least ensure you didn't just give your enemy a free drone, delivered.
