Iran claims to have shot down American drone

Iran's military claims that it shot down a U.S. drone in the eastern region of the country yesterday. State media cited a military official who identified the aircraft as an RQ-170 Sentinel and the country has promised an aggressive response to the alleged incident.

Meanwhile, Iran continues to attempt to contain the international reaction to the storming of the British embassy last week.  The Iranians have warned Washington not to block their oil exports – a move they say would more than double the price of crude.

Christine Romans talks with Jim Arkedis, director of the Progressive Policy Institute's National Security project, on American Morning today to discuss how these incidents will impact relations between the U.S. and Iran.
