Pentagon orders downing of 'unidentified object' over northern Alaska

The past week has been exciting for North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) as no less than three objects, one being a Chinese spy balloon and the remaining still unidentified, were shot down by U.S. fighter jets. 

According to Breitbart, on Friday, the Pentagon said that the U.S. shot down an unidentified object hovering in the skies above northern Alaska.

"At the direction of the President of the United States, fighter aircraft assigned to U.S. Northern Command successfully took down a high altitude airborne object off the northern coast of Alaska at 1:45 p.m. Eastern Standard Time today within U.S. sovereign airspace over U.S. territorial water,” Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder said.

He added: "On February 9, North American Aerospace Defense Command detected an object on ground radar, further investigated and identified the object using fighter aircraft. The object was flying at an altitude of 40,000 feet and posed a reasonable threat to the safety of civilian flight. U.S. Northern Command is beginning recovery operations now."

The general went on to clarify what the U.S. government knows about the object, which doesn't appear to be much.

“We have no further details about the object at this time, including any description of its capabilities, purpose, or origin. The object was about the size of a small car so not similar in size or shape to the high altitude surveillance balloon that was taken down off the coast of South Carolina on February 4."

Many criticized that response, given the ultra-advanced tech possessed and used by the U.S. military.

Breitbart noted:

The alleged incursion comes on the heels of a Chinese spy balloon entering U.S. airspace on January 28 and finally being shot down after traversing the continental U.S. and exiting over South Carolina on February 4.

In an equally stunning twist, on Saturday, it was reported that a similar object to the one shot down over Alaska had been shot down over Canada in the Yukon territory.

Once again, government officials from either country release nothing more in the way of what the objects were and where they came from.

For many, the silence from the White House on the situation is deafening. President Joe Biden on Saturday spent the evening entertaining the nation's governors with celebrity bands playing.

It seems like his priorities might be a little off.
