The Chinese spy balloon that traveled across the U.S. likely was able to send sensitive data to the Chinese Communist Party before it was shot down by the U.S. military Saturday, foreign policy experts told Fox News Digital.
Military officials decided to take out the balloon exactly one week after they first discovered it in Alaska. However, President Biden was not made aware of the balloon until Tuesday, when it was over Montana. Local news broke the story of its existence on Thursday.
The Pentagon said Thursday it "acted immediately to protect against the collection of sensitive information" from the balloon. But geopolitical experts said there is little reason to believe those efforts were successful, as the balloon almost certainly transferred surveillance data over to China as it flew over several military bases.

The Pantload of the United States (POTUS) reeks of weakness.
So it went across the entire ocean undetected and then when it was in Alaska they just let it keep going instead of taking it down there.
We have real geniuses running this country.
You’ve done it again!
They acted “immediately” on Thursday by shooting it down on Saturday?? Yeah that doesn’t even make sense in this Biden 🤡 clown 🤡world
The balloon was unmanned and the computers concluded about its border to border survey of the USA:
No Signs of Intelligent Life.
The thing was a test. Not of our capabilities; the Chinese know perfectly well what those are. Of our, meaning the government’s, capability of making the decision to take it down. And far from succeeding gloriously as the media would have us believe, Biden failed miserably. Which was well noted by our adversaries.
Best Billion dollar bribe the ever made.
Joe had to wait for Hunt to get the word from his Chinese handlers on what to do.
Someone said the Chinese wanted to know things like how we react, how well we sense these and how quickly, how unified or in disarray our military decision makers are and how and where our defense sensors are arranged for the next type of invasion overhead.
Like passing the old DEW Line over Canada like the Russians, how long it would take for Slim Pickens in a B-52 to reach Moscow to ride a bomb down on Ivan. Modernized and updated.
Yep Xi made a deal with Biden he can shoot it down after china gets all the info it needs
Hey, Joe’s the one who took it out. He’s like the second coming of John Wayne and George S. Patton or something.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Gives on a lot of confidence in NORAD’s ability to spot incoming
RE: Balloon payload sent intelligence to China....
The advanced data harvesters scanned everything inside Biden’s brain to gain an advantage over America.
Data dump said “Nothing on file.” Repeated for twenty minutes of downloading.
Photos of world leaders....
Biden: “And if you Chinese are so smart, how come you again——again——forgot my egg roll and I think the chicken tastes odd, like maybe it isn’t really chicken. Is it tofu or something? Smells funny, too.”
