Pentagon shoots down unidentified object over Alaska

February 11, 2023

The Pentagon and White House have admitted they don't know who owns or operates the unidentified object that was shot down off the coast of Alaska by an F-22 on Friday - just a week after the Chinese spy balloon was taken out. The Pentagon has now launched a recovery operation to collect the debris from the surface of the frozen waters off Alaska. He said US authorities do not know if the object was 'state-owned' and described it as 'much, much smaller' than the Chinese spy balloon shot down Saturday. A pair of F-22 fighter jets were sent to monitor the object near the northeastern corner of Alaska, close to the Canadian border and over the Beaufort Sea. The delay opened him up to political attacks from Republicans, who demanded that the Chinese spy balloon be shot down immediately.
