US Drone Fallen in Black Sea: Suspicious Video from Pentagon
US Drone Fallen in Black Sea: Suspicious Video from Pentagon
As the footage on ISIS Caliph Al Baghdadi Killing and on Fake Massacres of Bucha and Mariupol

Russia Today is such a balanced information network that it has re-launched the video released by the US Department of Defense on the alleged incident that occurred on the Black Sea on Tuesday 14 March due to the close encounter between a US Air Force MQ-9 Reaper drone and SU-27 aircraft of the Aerospace Forces of Russia with minimal commentary, on the camera which jams twice, although the footage highlights many indications of a suspected misdirection attempt to give credence to the Pentagon version.
Despite this journalistic correctness RT France was closed weeks ago due to the seizure of financial accounts by the Paris government and just yesterday RT Arabia was banned from Facebook.
According to the theory of the US Department of Defense, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) used for surveillance and espionage missions would have first been obscured with the launch of fuel from a Moscow fighter and then damaged to a propeller by a second interceptor.
According to the version of the Russian Ministry of Defense, the drone, which traveled without a transponder, was intercepted for security reasons but there was no collision and it fell by itself due to a risky manoeuvre. Neither Moscow nor Washington report the launch of a missile to bring it down.
Too many mysteries and manipulations in the footage
The 50-second video shows an aircraft releasing a “chemical trail” under a drone-like aircraft and then vanishing. Nothing more. This legitimizes some observations and questions.
First of all, the footage lacks a certain geolocation, it could also have been recorded on the Atlantic Ocean, not far from the Joint Base Langley-Eustis, in Virginia, where the most important US aviation command, the Air Force’s Air Combat Command, is based. but also the counterespionage of the Central Intelligence Agency which would certainly have no difficulty in producing misleading videos.
Furthermore, neither aircraft is clearly identifiable. But the alleged drone reveals an important detail. The load door is open as if to show that it is not armed.
Recall that Pentagon spokesman Pat Ryder declined to disclose whether the US drone that crashed on the Black Sea was armed.
MQ-9 Reaper is in fact the evolution of the MQ-1 Predator, the type of UAV equipped with Hellfire missiles that were used by the CIA for the killer attacks in Afghanistan and Libya, as candidly admitted by the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency Leon Panetta, when as Secretary of the Department of Defense in 2011 he visited the Navy Air Station of Sigonella, the military base of the US Air Force in Sicily but also the most important CIA operational station in the Mediterranean Sea.
Panetta was also the promoter of the 12 bacteriological laboratories opened in Ukraine in 2012 thanks to funding from the Pentagon.
Another detail does not escape a careful eye. Under the wings of the alleged Russian Sukhoi Su-27 interceptors, the Red Star legacy of the former USSR is not visible. This type of fighter-bomber aircraft produced since 1977 was bought by various nations of Asia and Africa.

According to Wikipedia documented sources there were 36 Su-27s in Ukraine care before the War of Donbass, 17 remained in service as of 2018. But the US Air Force is believed to own one Su-27 Flanker B and one Su-27UB. It also appears that three other Su-27s have been registered to civilian owners. They were purchased for informational and training purposes.
Let’s now analyze the sequence of the video. The first plane approaches and releases a substance while the drone camera records the airscrew which continues to rotate with the radial blades marked by a yellow line.

Then the recovery skips and the scenery suddenly changes, altered by reflections of light on the sea that seem to have been specially elaborated in post-production to show that a second plane is arriving, and the second fighter repeats the identical maneuver in every detail, as if was the same video sequence manipulated and re-proposed…
At that point the camera mounted on the drone jams. But then he resumes recording so as to show a damaged airscrew blade (no more yellow line).
The many questions about Video and Presumed Collision
If the video camera of the drone remained in operation why did the Pentagon not release the complete footage also showing the alleged MQ-9 crashing?
If the UAV was really disturbed with fuel leakage, as claimed by the USA, why was the video camera not smeared or obscured in the slightest despite two similar actions?
How is it possible that the pilot of a SU-27 that travels on average at 1,100 km/hour above sea level but can reach a maximum speed of 2,500 km/hour had the audacity and the micro-surgical ability to hit a single radial blade of a drone that travels an average of 200 km/hour without damaging its own plane, thus risking its life?
Or did one of the best aviators in the Moscow storm accidentally hit the UAV?

If the fighter wanted to carry out an offensive military action, it could have shot down the drone from a distance, without even being detected by the video camera.
Instead, in all likelihood, if we believe the Moscow version, the Russian Air Force deliberately monitored the MQ-9 in order to prove the US Air Force surveillance operation over the Black Sea and, therefore, not just a provocation, as declared by the ambassador of the Kremlin in Washington, but also a direct involvement of NATO in the war in Ukraine, as evidenced by the secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev who confirmed the attempt to recover parts of the Reaper, also, according to unofficial sources, the Moscow Navy has already recovered some debris.
Suspicious images such as those of Bucha and the killing of the ISIS Caliph
For those who have been following geopolitics and military intelligence for some years, that 50-second video reminds the one on the fake Bucha or Mariupol massacre, probably carried out by the CIA’s counterintelligence that has been operating in Ukraine for years, but above all the one released by the Pentagon on the mysterious mission to kill the Caliph of ISIS Al Baghdadi, believed by the Iraqis to be an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency itself and of the Mossad, the infamous foreign secret service of Israel 007.
