The U.S. military on Saturday shot down the CCP spy balloon that had spent days floating across the continental United States.
The surveillance balloon was shot down over the coast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, after the FAA shut down numerous airports and closed the airspace around the area.

When asked Saturday what the government planned to do about the balloon after it began drifting east toward the Atlantic Ocean, Joe Biden had replied, “we’ll take care of it.”

Many Americans viewed the action as too little too late considering the surveillance balloon had been allowed to float above the U.S. for days to monitor sensitive military installations in places like Montana.
