Jazz Shaw at Haut Hare, So we shot down a UFO over Alaska yesterday. Althouse, "The Pentagon said it shot down an unidentified object over frozen waters around Alaska on Friday at the order of President Biden...." ""U.S. officials said they could not immediately confirm whether the object was a balloon, but it was traveling at an altitude that made it a potential threat to civilian aircraft...."
