Objects threaten North American airspace

Canada's CBC news reports on some of the latest details:

A few points to consider:

  • This is an existential threat to North American airspace.  Colonel Let's Go Brandon is clearly ill-equipped to handle it effectively. 
  • The U.S. doesn't need spy balloons, it has satellites - the Chinese counter-accusations are ridiculous and defensive in nature.
  • As a reminder, no one in the Trump White House was told about Chinese balloons, because it wasn't realized until after he left office (via CNN):
The Biden administration official now says the incidents were not discovered until after the Trump administration had already left. But the official did not say how those incidents were discovered or when.

As details continue to emerge a threat assessment will likely come together.  It's too soon to speculate on that.
