Biden's Balloon Statement - Who's In Charge?

Biden indicated that when he was briefed "on Wednesday" he ordered the balloon shot down by the Pentagon advised against it.

Obviously, that statement is intended to shift blame from himself to the Pentagon for why it wasn't shot down.

The bigger question: Is he saying he wasn't briefed on this until Wednesday? It entered US airspace DAYS before that (Alaska).

Rather than shift blame, his own statement is a further indictment of his failed administration.

We'll watch them backtrack/modify his statement over the next few days. I'm sure he just "mispoke". Idiot.

America is run by a cabal of shadowy CIA and Pentagon figures.

The only possible excuse for the Military to want this balloon to continue its mission was that they were gathering intelligence regarding intelligence being collected and transmitted.

It's far fetched, but the balloon in and of itself is a gold mine into Chinese sigint.

So he ordered it shot down and the military said no?

Is that a coup?

re: Biden's Balloon Statement - Who's In Charge?
Repeat;

This whole thing just doesn't make sense. I mean is China lead by leaders as stupid as ours? Or are they just feeling so bold that they would float a slow-moving target over the heartland of the US, just for grins? There was no real intelligence opportunities here, that would be worth doing something so obviously reckless.

Did they do it so pedo Joe could shoot it down and look like a strong, independent leader, just before the State of the Union address?

This doesn't pass the smell test.

What did China really stand to gain here?

Just anyone they can reach on the phone. Which is not easy to do I’m sure.

So most of the time probably nobody.

For real, was it reverse psychology working on our inept leadershi?

China banking on us thinking they wouldn't dare do something so obvious.

Weird shit

I would imagine we were jamming everything that balloon was sending out to China from the get go. If not where in the fucc did all the trillion go we spend every yr on military. We should have that ability!

A general and corporations are in charge.

Isn't that what Republicans like?

Hello, Chief. Wake up. It's time to wake up.

If you think we were jamming anything you are delusional. Why would our govt leaders jam the signal. You realize if they jam the signal then China won't be able to gather any information from the Ballon, right?

Where did the trillions go??? Have you ever heard of a back pocket? When you asked this question is seem to me that you are implying the gov't wants us to have a strong capable military. Is that what you thinking?

I could understand them not telling him right away because there is probably stuff like this that is happening literally 24/7

I'm not a Republican, but if I were, I would use this as campaign material for sure.
