On Tuesday, a White House correspondent inquired whether President Joe Biden is feeling "embarrassed" about his management of the Chinese surveillance balloon and the three unidentified flying objects (UFOs) that were taken down by the U.S. military, during a press conference with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
In the past few days, President Biden instructed the U.S. military to take down four vessels that were passing over the U.S. and Canada due to their potential threat to civilian air travel and national security. Over the weekend, the military successfully shot down three unidentified objects, with one over the shores of Alaska on Friday, another over Canada on Saturday, and a third over Lake Huron on Sunday.
According to the reporter, weather balloons are released from around 900 locations twice a day for a duration of at least two hours. The reporter also put forward the possibility that the three unidentified flying objects (UFOs) could have been weather balloons.
“If it turns out, as it looks like, that the president and Mr. Trudeau sent top gun fighters to blow weather balloons out of the sky, does the president regret that and is he embarrassed by that?” he questioned.
“I’m not gonna get ahead of any final decision, we just don’t know yet, we actually just don’t know and as I’ve said … it is in consideration that that could be the leading explanation here,” the press secretary replied.
“But is he embarrassed by that?” he fired back.
“I don’t think the president should be embarrassed by the fact that he took action to make sure that our civilian airspace was safe,” Jean-Pierre said. “I’m answering the question, the president took action because we did see that these objects were in the airspace of civilian airspace.”
As the military looks for debris in the ocean, they are actively investigating the specifics surrounding the unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and balloon. White House Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the National Security Council, John Kirby, stated that the military has evaluated the situation and determined that the objects did not pose an immediate danger to civilians and were also lacking communication systems.
During the press conference, the reporter inquired about the criticism aimed at President Biden for his delayed response to the Chinese balloon and the quick response to the other three objects. In response, Jean-Pierre explained that the balloon was discernible from the unidentified flying objects (UFOs), and had not been taken down for several days based on a recommendation from the Pentagon. Furthermore, the U.S. military was able to collect valuable data on Chinese surveillance.
“We are going to learn a lot more because of the action that the president took and because of the action that the Pentagon took,” she said.
Jean-Pierre asserted that President Biden ordered the shooting down of the UFOs in order to safeguard civilian airspace. However, the reporter pointed out that weather balloons are present in the airspace every day. On Monday, John Kirby stated that the Department of Defense (DOD) is on "heightened alert," which could explain why NORAD has detected unusual objects in recent days.
