CBS News reported that the Biden Administration has been lying from the start about that Chinese spy balloon that they took a week to shoot down. The original story was that they didn’t detect it until it was almost over Alaska, so they had to wait until it crossed the US to make sure it was safe to shoot it down over the ocean.
But according to CBS, US intelligence watched the balloon lift off from China’s south coast and had been tracking it for nearly a week before it got to Alaska. It makes one wonder if Biden would’ve ordered it shot down at all if it hadn’t been spotted and created a public uproar.
So far, minimal debris has been recovered from the ocean of that first Chinese spy balloon that Biden finally ordered shot down. No debris has yet been recovered from the three flying objects shot down over Alaska, Canada and Lake Huron. The first two were shot down over rugged, remote terrain and the third is likely on the bottom of the lake.
Meanwhile, Rep. Dan Crenshaw revealed what Congress was told in their briefings. He called the last three shoot-downs UAP’s (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenons.) He said, "The first two UAPs were smaller, the size of an ATV, and harder to detect. The third resembled a balloon, and was easier for the radar to pick up. All moved with wind currents." He also said these things are being picked up more often now by radar because new technology enables us to detect objects that are smaller and slower-moving than before.
