Panetta dismisses Iran's claims about drone
Panetta says he seriously questions ability of Iran to gain any data from downed drone
By The Associated Press

ABOARD A U.S. MILITARY AIRCRAFT (AP) ' Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Monday dismissed Tehran's claims that it has recovered data from a U.S. spy drone that went down in Iran late last year.

Panetta declined to provide any details, but said that "based on my experience ... I would seriously question their ability to do what they say they have done."

Iranian officials claimed Sunday that they were building a copy of the drone. They said they had recovered information that the aircraft was used to spy on Osama bin Laden in the weeks before he was killed.

Panetta, a former CIA chief, was traveling to Colombia and spoke with reporters on the plane.
