The western media and the US made a big deal out of this.
Hopefully the Chinese military got all information about the drone prior handing it over to the US.

The need to inspect the drone was understandable because it is an undersea military device which can be easily mistaken by anyone as a sonic torpedo with potential danger to seafaring personnel of any flag.

Small though it may be, it is in fact one of a number of underwater devices developed by the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPA-War) to detect and track foreign submarines and not 'water salinity' (!) as was alluded by the US.

Furthermore if it was benign, it would not be the Pentagon asking for its return but some oceanographic institution. Hah!

It goes to show the US as a republic turned superpower still has not the wisdom to draw lessons from history. After all, didn't its Navy have to embarrassingly ask for return of its EP-3 reconnaissance spy-plane which flew into Chinese airspace so near Hainan's submarine base in 2001? Why didn't the US Navy say then that it didn't want it to happen again as it did this time?
