“We’ll never know” — John Kirby reports Biden orders $10 hobby balloons

NSC Spokesman John Kirby appeared on Fox News on Sunday to discuss the objects shot over Lake Huron and Alaska.

Three objects were shot down last week – one over the Yukon in Canadian airspace and two over US airspace.

Joe Biden said Thursday that the three objects shot down by the $400,000 Sidewinder were likely weather balloons.

It is believed that one of the objects shot was a $10 balloon.

The Northern Illinois Bottlecap Balloon Brigade told Politico they believe the balloons were one of the $400,000 missiles fired by the military.

Cost of that balloon: $10-$15

The U.S. military has canceled its recovery mission for the objects shot in Alaska and Lake Huron.

“The U.S. military, federal agencies, and Canadian partners conducted a systematic search of each area using a variety of capabilities, including airborne imagery and sensors, surface sensors and inspections, and subsurface scans and did not locate the wreckage.” – Northcom said in a statement.

“We don’t know exactly what these balloons were … we may never know,” Kirby said on Fox News Sunday.

How convenient.
