But they're still not sure exactly whatthis object was and if it posed a threat we're calling this an object because that'sthe best description we have right now the unidentified floating object roughly the sizeof a small car was shot down by fighter jets over the icy waters of Alaska the WhiteHouse says whatever it was was flying at a height of about forty thousand feet over thestate's northern coast and posed a reasonable threat to the safety of Civilian flight andit came in inside our territorial Waters those Waters right now are frozen but insideterritorial airspace and over territory Waters a recovery effort is now underway to retrievethe wreckage but it comes less than a week after the military shot down a massive Chinese spyballoon that floated over several States for.

Seven days before the military shot it down overthe Waters of South Carolina what is concerning um is that it was yet another unidentified objectviolating U.S sovereignty Alaska's senior senator Republican Lisa murkowski any aspect of U.SSovereign territory that is is encroached upon there's going to be consequences to it Alaska'sJunior Senator Republican Dan Sullivan says the latest incidents highlight the need for theU.S to invest in better detection systems whether the threat is a slow-moving balloonor an intercontinental ballistic missile our um Homeland defense needs an upgrade in allthose areas and I think this is a wake-up call but former Secretary of Defense Mark esper toldCBS the quick action might be evidence the U.S has already taken some of those steps maybe today'sdemonstration of uh closing the Gap and shooting.
