4-Star General Blasts Biden Over Chinese Spy Balloon: ‘We Had Plenty Of Opportunity To Take It Down’ Over Aleutian Islands | Eastern North Carolina Now

Publisher's Note: Following this noteworthy and infamous story regarding the Chinese Spy Balloon caper, an inarguable embarrassment for the feckless Biden Administration, will be this series of posts, an archival history, chronicling the Misinformational Misadventure that wholly embarrassed this leader of the Democratic Socialists' Authoritarian regime.

    Retired four-star Army General Jack Keane slammed President Joe Biden on Saturday for not shooting down the Chinese spy balloon that flew over the U.S. over the last several days when it was thousands of miles away from the continental U.S.

    Keane, a former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army, made the remarks during a segment on Fox News immediately following the U.S. military shooting down the spy balloon over the Atlantic Ocean after it passed South Carolina.

    "Remember, this was approaching the United States over water," Keane said. "It was approaching the Aleutian Islands over water. And we had plenty of opportunity to take it down then. And that's when it should have happened. We had to be tracking it from mainland China across the Pacific Ocean, and we had plenty of warning to put together an operation that we are conducting now on the east coast that should have been done there."




    ARTHEL NEVILLE, FOX NEWS HOST: Yeah, I heard your last point there. And I want to say, as we're watching this exclusive coverage of this Chinese spy balloon going down there over Surfside Beach, South Carolina, if you could talk to us about what happened in terms of coordinating this to get to this point now, General Keane.

    GENERAL JACK KEANE: Well, we've had all of our sensors watching this, you know, for some time. And certainly our military capability that was going to be involved got alerted. People have been planning it likely for a couple of days. I'm assuming the president, you know, made a decision within the last 24 hours to take this out. They probably presented him with a number of options of where the best place to do it, certainly heading to the East Coast, which is considerably more populated than Montana was. It was probably ruled out that they would do anything over land. If they weren't willing to do it over Montana, they're certainly not going to do it on the East coast of the United States or in transit to the East Coast. And they're taking advantage of obviously doing this safely in terms of civilians. And it's not a complicated operation, I don't believe, for the United States military to take a balloon moving at the speed it's moving at and bring it down. So the coordination to do that and the intelligence to bring all of that together is not a major problem for us at all. Now, can we recover the sensor package? That's going to be iffy, given the size of this thing and how much it weighs. But nonetheless, we finally did what we should have done at the beginning. Remember, this was approaching the United States over water. It was approaching the Aleutian Islands over water. And we had plenty of opportunity to take it down then. And that's when it should have happened. We had to be tracking it from mainland China across the Pacific Ocean, and we had plenty of warning to put together an operation that we are conducting now on the east coast that should have been done there. And by the way, we have alert aircraft in Alaska for the principal reason of a penetration coming largely from Russia, and that's why that aircraft are there. And they would have been able to respond to this when it approached the United States in name of the Aleutian Islands. Now we're doing it in the backdoor when it's leaving the United States - it's anti-climatic in that sense, but it still sends a message to China that we're not going to let you get away with this nonsense.

Among the many other lackluster performance standards by the Biden Administration - the most recent, allowing the Chinese Spy Balloon unfettered access to the skies above this Sovereign Republic - Joe Biden's foreign policy is considered by most true experts to be mediocre to abysmal at best. If one were to give a fair assessment of the quality of this apex duty of this Executive Branch: What would be your opinion of the Biden Administration's Foreign Policy initiatives and, or obvious faux pas?
  President Biden is a Foreign Policy expert of consummate skill just like his brother, Jim, and his son, Hunter.
  America's First Idiot President is corruptly committed to making the World far less safe, while surrendering OUR United States of America's sovereignty whenever, wherever possible.
  Mr. Biden is MY President because I pay close attention to only what rewards me, thus demanding as little sacrifice as is my nature to offer, or shrug.
