Why nobody knows anything about that mysterious American plane in Iran

There's a puzzle in international aviation and diplomatic circles: How did an American jet wind up landing in Iran?

A New York Times correspondent snapped a picture of plane N604EP in Tehran Airport, and that’s where the questions started: US companies can’t do business in Iran, and you can’t bring an American-made and registered plane there without specific approval from the government. (Technically, flying a plane to another country could be considered exporting it.) But so far, the officials in charge of enforcing these rules have not commented on the plane’s presence there or whether they are investigating it. Nor has Iran’s diplomatic mission to the United Nations. Update: Iran’s foreign ministry (Persian) now says the plane is owned by Ghana and was ferrying senior government officials to a meeting; the Wall Street Journal reports the plane is owned by a mining company run by the younger brother of Ghana’s president.

I doubt you'll find a good answer for this. Interesting read though, I did not know about the way these planes are owned, in that banks often act as trustee of planes, and manage them for investors.

My theory is that its all BS and that the people that are beating the war drums are all-in together.

Maybe the only "problem" with Iran doesn't even truly exist and they just wanna start wars.

If not Iran or Syria or Ukraine or ________ (<-------insert country here) the just wanna fight wherever the spark that they are making causes a fire.
