A CHINESE SPY BALLOON IS FLOATING ABOVE BILLINGS, MONTANA
A high-altitude surveillance balloon believed to belong to China has been spotted by U.S. military over the western states. A picture of the balloon over Billings, Montana, taken by a photographer for The Billings Gazette, has been released.
Military sources say the balloon poses no intelligence or military threat, and President Joe Biden was strongly advised by the Pentagon not to shoot it down. The Pentagon is being unusually forthcoming about the balloon, suggesting that it is sending a message to China that we know what they’re doing and we could stop it whenever we like.
