Did Iran Really Down a Drone?

So Iran is claiming to have downed a U.S. spy drone that was collecting intel on an undergound uranium enrichment site located next to an Iranian military base.

From AFP:

Lawmaker Ali Aghazadeh Dafsari said the drone was flying over the Fordo uranium enrichment site near the holy city of Qom in central Iran, the state TV-run Youth Journalists Club said.

The report did not say when the plane was shot down.

Now, Iran has claimed to have shot down U.S. drones several times in the past. Heck, they apparently show the wreckage to Russia.

Let's play the guessing game:

Who thinks this latest robo-casualty was a Global Hawk?

Who thinks it was a stealthy RQ-170 Sentinel (if this is the case, how was it downed)?

Who thinks Iran's making this up?

Tehran, if you're listening, show us some footage of the wreckage that proves you downed an American drone. Until then, I'll be skeptical.
