Report: US Military Has Admitted to Shooting Down a ‘High Altitude Flying Object’ Out of an ‘Abundance of Caution’ Over Alaska

National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby has announced that the US Military has shot down a “high altitude object” that was within US airspace over Alaska within the last 24 hours.

“So I can confirm that the Department of Defense was tracking a high altitude object over Alaska airspace in the last 24 hours,” said Kirby. “The object was flying at an altitude of 40,000 feet and posed a reasonable threat to the safety of civilian flight. Out of an abundance of caution at the recommendation of the Pentagon, President Biden ordered the military to down the object.”

According to Kirby, the Unidentified Ariel Phenomenon (UAP) did not breach US airspace but came from within. Recovery efforts are being planned but will be difficult since the waters the debris landed in are frozen.

When asked by a member of the press if it was perhaps another Chinese spy balloon, Kirby stated that the UAP was “much smaller” than the previous Chinese spy balloon, and was around the “size of a small car.” He also stated it did not carry a “significant payload”

An Administration Under Pressure

The downing of this UAP comes at a time when the Biden White House is already under scrutiny after the recent Chinese spy balloon, which traveled across the country for a week until it was shot down outside of North Carolina over the Atlantic Ocean, was allowed to travel across the country undeterred for so long.

While the Chinese government said the balloon was, according to The Post Millennial, “a civilian weather vessel” which “accidentally” entered US airspace, the Pentagon has confirmed the balloon was in fact gathering information as part of a intelligence gathering program by the Chinese government that the US has apparently known about for years.

China’s Foreign Ministry, in response to their downed balloon, stated that “The Chinese side has clearly asked the US side to properly handle the matter in a calm, professional and restrained manner. Under such circumstances, the US use of force is a clear overreaction and a serious violation of international practice.”

The spy balloon was described as being “the size of three school busses” and flew roughly 60,000 feet in the air, therefore not similar to the size or altitude of the downed UAP over Alaska

At this time, the Pentagon has not released further details as to the nation of origin, whether it was unnamed or not, or any other information that was not initially conveyed by Kirby.

According to a report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in early January, since March of 2021 there have been over 350 UAP reports from within the United States that the Pentagon was aware of.
