Chinese Balloon Did Spy on sensitive US Military Sites

The Chinese spy balloon that few across the US in February gathered intelligence from several American military sites before it was shot down, according to two senior US officials and a former senior administration official.

The sources said China could have gathered more intelligence if not for the Biden administration’s efforts to block it.

The intel collected was mostly from electronic signals, rather than images, the officials said.

Officials previously said the balloon was capable of collecting signals intelligence.

On 4 February, at the direction of President Biden and with the support of Canada, US fighter aircraft under US Northern Command authority engaged and brought down a high altitude surveillance balloon within sovereign US airspace and over US territorial waters.

Sailors were later assigned to recover the balloon from the Atlantic Ocean.

A ‘UFO’ was shot down on 10 February over Alaska.

Another balloon was shot down a day later over Yukon, Canada.

On 12 February, another was shot down over the Great Lakes.
