On Sunday, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman, Michael McCaul, unveiled that the Chinese spy balloon that fluttered through American airspace “did a lot of damage.”
During an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” McCaul, a GOP member from Texas, highlighted that Biden and his management actually enabled China to collect sensitive information from such lethal areas that are delicate to national security.

McCaul revealed the worthful information when host Margaret Brennan questioned him concerning new limitations imposed on six Chinese companies that provided their technology in the spy balloon project, launched by China.
“It will be one of my number-one priorities, as the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in this Congress, to stop the export of technology to China that then goes into their most advanced weapons systems, in this case, a sophisticated spy balloon that went across three nuclear sites.”
He added further:
“I think it’s important to say, in plain view of the American people, you know, in Montana — the triad site, air, land, and, sea nuclear weapons — in Omaha, the spy balloon went over our Strategic Command, which is our most sensitive nuclear site; it was so sensitive that President Bush was taken there after 9/11. And then, finally, Missouri, the B-2 bomber— that’s where they are placed. It did a lot of damage.”
The government announced the spy balloon’s ability to collect sensitive information was not much threatening. However, McCaul stated that he is not satisfied with the announcement.
“My assessment — and I can’t get into the detail of the intelligence document — is that if it was still transmitting going over these three very sensitive nuclear sites, I think if you look at the flight pattern of the balloon, it tells a story as to what the Chinese were up to as they controlled this aircraft throughout the United States.”
He further added:
“Going over those sites, in my judgment, would cause great damage. Remember, a balloon could see a lot more on the ground than a satellite.”
During the interview, McCaul assumed that China might have launched the spy balloon to gather sensitive information regarding American military capabilities in the case that Taiwan and China terminate their cold war.
“It was done with provocation to gather intelligence data and collect intelligence on our three major nuclear sites in this country.”
