"U.S. tests Iran's reaction to spy planes; then complains about unprofessional Iranian behavior"

From a reader: "At some point during the flight, the Iranian military warned the two aircraft to change course or risk getting shot down. The US military planes ignored the warning and continued flying in international airspace, although close to Iranian territory, the officials told Fox. “We wanted to test the Iranian reaction,” one US official told Fox News when asked why the US jets were flying close to Iran." "The official said the Iranian behavior was characterized as “unprofessional.” "
