Despite Iranian claims to the
contrary, US military aircraft are not flying missions in Iran's
airspace, Pentagon spokesman Larry Di Rita said Wednesday.
"I would consider the source and leave it at that," Di Rita told
reporters at a Pentagon news conference. "I'm telling you that
we're not doing those kinds of activities."
Di Rita emphasized he speaks only for the Defense Department,
but cautioned reporters not to interpret that to mean other
agencies may be flying over Iran. "It's not for me to speak for
other departments," he said. "It is our belief that it's not
happening elsewhere (in the government) either."
