Mystery 'spy balloon' debris recovered by fishermen off the coast of Alaska

A fishing crew has reportedly recovered what is thought to be the remains of another spy balloon in the waters off Alaska.
Only a week after NORAD dispatched fighter jets to intercept a mystery high-altitude balloon over Utah and a year after a Chinese spy balloon was shot down off the coast of South Carolina, reports have suggested that another spy balloon has been found - this time in the sea off the coast of Alaska.

The incident began when a commercial fishing crew pulled what they believed to be the remains of a high-altitude balloon from the water and sent photographs of it to the authorities for verification.

It is understood that FBI agents will meet the crew once they return to shore sometime this weekend and transport the debris to the FBI lab in Quantico, Virginia for analysis.
"[We are] aware of debris found off the coast of Alaska by a commercial fishing vessel," the agency said in a statement. "We will work with our partners to assist with the logistics of the debris recovery."

While it isn't currently clear whether or not the debris actually is that of a spy balloon, the description and photographs seem to strongly suggest that it is.

If this does turn out to be the case, it could further erode international relations between the United States and its rivals - especially China if the balloon turns out to be from there.

Given that, from the events of last year, we know that China has been running a high-altitude surveillance operation over North America, it would certainly come as no surprise if this latest balloon (if it does turn out to be one) was also sent by the Chinese.

You would think if there was a spy balloon brought down at some point , the FBI or military would have already sent out a search and found it themselves to study it and see what they were doing. I mean , they just gonna let it float around and who cares whats in it? Or maybe they didn't know about it.

The balloon turns out to have been out at sea for over a year: Pentagon reveals that balloon recovered off coast of Alaska had been in ocean for 'well over a year' ( I'm thinking it's the amateur ballooning group balloon I linked earlier.

It's pretty suspicious that Traitor Darth Brandon isn't rounding up all the hobby ballooning groups and having them executed as enemies of the state. Clearly Joe Biden and the rest of the thugs in DC are traitors to America.
