Chinese spy balloon gathered intelligence from US military sites: report

By Isabel Keane
April 3, 2023

The Chinese spy balloon that drifted across the US in February collected intelligence from several American military sites and transmitted the information back to Beijing in real-time — even as the Biden administration intercepted it, according to US officials.

The spy balloon made multiple passes over some key locations and was able to send Beijing the information it gathered instantaneously, two current and one former senior US administration official told NBC News.

While soaring through the sky, the balloon was able to collect intelligence from electronic signals.

Such intelligence may have included weapons systems or communications from base personnel.

US officials downplay significance of intel captured by Chinese spy craft over American soil

U.S. officials who spoke to Fox News on Monday are downplaying the significance of intelligence that a Chinese spy balloon was able to capture from military installations earlier this year as it flew over the country.

The officials said they still stand by original statements that any signals or electronic intelligence the balloon gathered was of "limited intelligence value" and that measures were taken to mitigate Beijing’s ability to collect data while the object was sailing above sensitive sites.

The assurances come following a report from NBC News this morning stating that the balloon was able to gather intel from numerous sensitive American military sites despite efforts from the Biden administration to prevent it from doing so.

The report was based on information from two current senior U.S. officials and a former senior Biden administration official, who claimed China was able to control the balloon to allow it to pass over the sites multiple times while transmitting information back to Beijing in real time.

NBC News, citing the three officials, reported that the intel China gathered was taken mostly from electronic signals coming from the sites, instead of images.

"Chinese spy balloon gathered intelligence from US military sites"

No wonder Milley and his subordinates were against shooting it down early (as ol' white joe actually requested them to do).

GOP Blasts Biden for ‘Misleading’ Country on China Spy Balloon: ‘Focused More on Pronouns’ than Protecting Americans

Republican officials blasted President Joe Biden for “misleading” Americans and congress after he had previously assured that sensitive sites were protected from a Chinese spy balloon earlier this year. A fresh report detailed how crucial intelligence was, in fact, collected by the surveillance device.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
