“The downing came as U.S. troops sought to recover a car-size object shot down Friday over Alaska”
The communist China spy balloon saga continues. After allowing the first one to traverse the entire nation, the Biden administration figured it should probably not repeat that optics disaster, so they shot down a second one over Alaska.
Reports now indicate a third communist China spy balloon was shot down by U.S. military over Canada. Well, they don’t say the second and third are CCP spy balloons, but what other unidentified unmanned flying objects would they be?
A U.S. F-22 fighter shot down a third unmanned aircraft in a week on Saturday, this time over northern Canada, according to a U.S. official.
The downing came as U.S. troops sought to recover a car-size object shot down Friday over Alaska. The three objects, including the Chinese spy balloon that drifted across sensitive military sites in the continental United States, has heightened tensions between the Americans and Chinese.
It’s not clear who operated the objects shot down Friday and Saturday, according to the U.S. official who was not authorized to speak publicly.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also announced the news on Twitter Saturday. Trudeau said in a tweet he had spoken to U.S. President Joe Biden.
I ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace. @NORADCommand shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object.
