4 Objects Shot Down Over US & Canadian Airspace: Senate Kicks Off Spending Process to Find Answers

In recent days, four objects have been shot down after hovering over U.S. and Canadian airspace, leaving Capitol Hill abuzz with speculation.[0] In the absence of complete information, Senate Republicans have pushed President Joe Biden to address the nation directly on the matter, while Democrats indicate the administration could be doing more.[0]

Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) recalled getting an alarming call from the Department of Defense Sunday afternoon as the object hovered over the Mitten.[0] The administration informed Sens. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) and Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) before making the object public, and she was not the only one to be “kept informed, every step” of the way.[0]

No objects that were shot down during the weekend have been found.[0] Murkowski noted that the frigid temperatures in Alaska were making the search difficult, while Peters asserted that the depth of the lake was making it incredibly difficult to locate anything.[0] Despite the Biden administration's decision to not consider aliens, lawmakers continue to inquire about the issue at a rapid pace.[0]

At a defense spending subpanel hearing on Thursday, Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) expressed concern over the Chinese spy balloon, calling it “concerning”.[0] He stated that the amount of worry he has will depend on the source of these things.[0] His subcommittee is anticipated to conduct subsequent hearings as the Senate commences its yearly expenditure process.

Although both parties are worried about China's involvement in the intrusions, some senators implied that the response to President Biden's management of the unknown objects might be divided by party.[0] Sen. Angus King (I-Maine.), a member of the Intelligence Committee, concluded that the administration handled the first one properly.[0] He said, “There are some people that if Biden walked out, woke up in the morning and walked across the Potomac River, they’d say, ‘Biden can’t swim.’”[0]

The mystery surrounding the objects has yet to be solved. With the Senate kicking off its annual spending process, further hearings are expected to gain more insight into the situation.
