FAIL: Biden Let Chinese Spy Balloon Steal Military Secrets

The failure of the Biden administration to safeguard sensitive American military installations from Chinese espionage has been exposed. Despite repeated assurances by U.S. officials that a Chinese spy balloon, which crossed the country in February, did not pose a real threat, it was able to gather information from U.S. military sites. According to NBC News, the balloon intercepted electronic signals, potentially including those from weapons systems and base personnel communications, and sent real-time data back to Beijing. The administration's inability to prevent Chinese espionage on American soil is evident in this incident.

On February 2nd, the Chinese spy balloon was monitored flying over Montana's Malmstrom Air Force Base, which contains a critical component of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The balloon even maneuvered in a figure-eight pattern to gather electronic signals from U.S. military sites. Despite efforts by U.S. officials to minimize the collection of intelligence, the balloon was still able to obtain a significant amount of information. NBC's request for comment from the National Security Council and the Department of Defense has not yet received a response.

In addition to the previous failure, the Biden administration has faced criticism for permitting the Chinese spy balloon to traverse Alaska and the contiguous U.S. for several days before finally shooting it down off the coast of South Carolina. While officials stated that the episode presented a chance to witness Chinese spying tactics in action and evaluate the balloon's technical information and surveillance abilities, the administration's inability to safeguard sensitive U.S. military sites from potential Chinese espionage is apparent. The Biden administration should have implemented more rigorous measures to defend the country against potential spying campaigns.

Moreover, the Chinese government has denied any knowledge of the airlift and instead asserted that the balloon was a civilian airship that had unintentionally deviated from its planned course. Nevertheless, officials have insinuated that upon reaching Alaskan airspace, Beijing deliberately exploited this unforeseen surveillance opportunity. The Biden administration had earlier disclosed that the balloon was only capable of acquiring signals intelligence and had restricted maneuvering capacity. However, observers have now uncovered that the balloon did not deploy the self-destruct mechanism, which raises doubts about the administration's commitment to safeguarding American military information's security.

The Biden administration must take decisive action to enhance national security if it intends to safeguard the safety of the American public. The administration's inability to prevent Chinese spies from gathering intelligence on U.S. military sites on American soil is inexcusable. If such actions persist, it is unclear what other intelligence secrets the Chinese may steal from the U.S. military.
