UFO or Adversary DRONE?

Adversary drones are observed spying on U.S. NAVY facilities, and the Pentagon reportedly acts like they're UFOs?  Tyler Rogoway reports in Thedrive.com that “We may not know the identities of all the mysterious craft that American military personnel and others have been seeing in the skies as of late, but I have seen more than enough to tell you that it is clear that a very terrestrial adversary is toying with us in our own backyard using relatively simple technologies—drones and balloons—and making off with what could be the biggest intelligence haul of a generation. While that may disappoint some who hope the origins of all these events are far more exotic in nature, the strategic implications of these bold operations, which have been happening for years, undeterred, are absolutely massive.” Some report seeing drones that closely resemble the 1945 radar-reflecting device shown in the patent drawing.
