The Chinese Balloon incident this past week, with President Biden ordering it be shot down over the Atlantic Ocean off South Carolina after being mapped over Montana, Missouri, and the Carolinas during the week, is an example of proper reaction in a way that does not threaten the safety of people or locations over land.
It brings to attention the so called “Gang Of Eight”, which are given special access to intelligence information regarding any danger to national security.
Congressman Mike Turner of Ohio (R), Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
Congressman Jim Himes of Connecticut (D), Ranking Member
Senator Mark Warner (D) of Virginia, Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
Senator Marco Rubio (R) of Florida, Vice Chair
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R) of California
Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D) of New York
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D) of New York
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) of Kentucky
Hopefully, the members of this group will avoid politics on this issue, but already there has been strong criticism of the tactics used by Joe Biden by Turner and Rubio, a regrettable situation.
