It was just a silly balloon.
In late January and early February, a China spy balloon crossed over Alaska and the continental United States.
The Biden regime was aware of the Chinese spy balloon in US air space for a week, since the previous Saturday, January 28th.
The Biden administration initially ignored the threat hoping the balloon would not be detected. But after amateur photographers captured the balloon flying over Montana the Biden White House had to admit they knew about the balloon.
The balloon crossed over major US military bases and missile silos.
The Gateway Pundit put together this graphic to show how many military bases were in the balloon’s path as it maneuvered across the United States.
Here is a list of the US Military bases in the path of the China Spy Balloon.
** Malstrom Air Force Base – Montana – home of 341st Military Wing

This was an unprecedented national security threat.
Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said the U.S. military had to shut down communications and movements last week as the China spy balloon flew over strategic military bases during its week-long flyover of the United States from Alaska to South Carolina. The balloon was only shot down after it went offshore. Joe Biden claimed the spy balloon gathering intel over US military bases was “not a major breach.”
In April, the National Security Council admitted that the Chinese spy balloon was able to gather intelligence from several sensitive American military bases.
This weekend Joe Biden downplayed the historic national security threat telling reporters it was a “sill balloon” China flew across the continental US.
It should be clear to Americans who are paying attention – The Biden regime is purposely working to destroy America.
