I heard someone say that an Iraqi jet shot down an American one while this was going on. Any truth to this.?

CNN reports that an unmanned US spy plane was shot down over Iraq, but I doubt this is related to the horrible terrorist attacks in the US

It was a Predator, which is a small, unmanned, prop-driven reconnaissance plane (UAV). It’s full of high-tech equipment, but considered expendable. This is the second one shot down in the last two weeks.
