Iran claims released footage is from downed U.S. drone – Reza Sayah reports

FROM CNN WIRES:

(CNN) - Iran says it has decoded and released footage from a U.S. drone that it downed more than a year ago.

The black and white aerial footage, Iran claims was from a RQ-170 spy plane, was aired by Iranian news agencies and placed on YouTube.

A man, identified in Iranian media as Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, narrates parts of the footage.

CNN can not independently verify the authenticity of the video. Also CNN could not immediately reach Pentagon officials for comment.

This morning on "Early Start," CNN's Reza Sayah looks at the claims from Iran, and whether the claims could be true.
