Neither Chinese nor UFOs: the White House outlines a new theory about the origin of the downed balloons


Updated at 9:47 p.m.

The White House considers that the “dominant theory” about the three unidentified flying objects that the US has shot down in recent days is that they are “balloons linked to commercial or scientific entities.”

This is how he explained it this Tuesday John Kirby, spokesman for the National Security Council, who assured that it is “what US intelligence is considering as an explanation” and that the objective of these balloons would be “benign”. He added that the US rules out that they are from a program of its own government and that they are connected to China’s surveillance program, which the Biden Administration gave notice of its existence after shooting down a spy balloon at the beginning of the month.

The White House offered this explanation amid a growing trend on social media and in public opinion linking the artifacts to extraterrestrial activity. On the eve, Joe Biden’s spokeswoman, Karine Jean-Pierre, that there were “indications of alien or extraterrestrial activity.” She did it jokingly (she recalled that she liked the movie ‘ET’ a lot as a child), but, in the absence of clear explanations or images of the objects offered by the authorities, the theories have not stopped. grow.

Kirby acknowledged that the explanation of the commercial or scientific nature of the artifacts is preliminary since no remains of the objects have yet been recovered. The first of them was shot down over the skies of Alaska last Friday, followed by another in Yukon (Canada) on Saturday and a third in Lake Huron (Michigan) on Sunday.

The problem is that those remains may never be recovered. It is a possibility that official sources have defended before CNN and that would only serve to feed conspiracy theories.

General Mark Milley, Chief of Staff, confirmed that no remains had been located to date. “They are in very difficult terrain,” he said of the areas where they fell. Milley also claimed that the first missile launched by a fighter jet against the third object missed its target and landed in Lake Huron. He required a second missile.
