#1 Well Hezbollah discovered they could launch from Lebanon, swing out over the Med, and fly over Gaza and Israel almost to the West Bank before being intercepted... plus likely real-time signals and image intelligence... demonstration of credible CW/BW dispersal platform ... other than that, yeah, total failure.

#2 There is also the possibility that the IDF let the drone fly to analyze its signals and control, then the IDF finally took it down. We at the bottom of the intel food chain do not know the critical details, and the IDF probably has better OPSEC than the US at this time.
