United States government officials have confirmed that a third Chinese spy balloon has been identified in the skies but are refusing to reveal the craft’s location.
The news comes after the U.S. military used an F-22 Raptor to take out a Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina on Saturday, as Slay News reported.
The U.S. Air Force used a single air-to-air A9X sidewinder missile fired at an altitude of approximately 58,000 feet to down the balloon.
The decision to shoot down the spy balloon came after Democrat President Joe Biden allowed it to fly thousands of miles over the continental U.S. during the last several days.
The Pentagon admitted in a statement that the Biden administration was aware that the balloon was gathering data but didn’t reveal what information it was collecting.
The Washington Post reported that the U.S. officials have identified “a third operating elsewhere,” but they declined to give the balloon’s location.
An official told the Post that Beijing was embarrassed by the incident.
“They’re in a very tough place,” the official said.
“And they have very few cards to play right now.”
The second Chinese spy balloon was detected over South America earlier this week, according to U.S. military officials.

We can do this. Everyone look up.
I don’t believe a damn thing coming from this government.
The Chinese are in a tough place?
Shoot one down and an hour later there is another one.
Yes. They have been laughing their asses off. Makes it harder to sit down at the dinner parties.
I blocked ALL his punches. With my face...
Get the 4chan autists to look for it. They can find anything! lol
Typical smarmy , wimpy , reaction from the simps in the cabinet and the corn pop whooper in chief.
How China responded to the U.S. shooting down the balloon:
China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement saying, “China will resolutely uphold the relevant company’s legitimate rights and interests, and at the same time reserving the right to take further actions in response,” per AP News.
Ha ha! We barroon you, Joe Baiden.
No publicity/acknowledgement until multiple public videos are posted online of the sightings.
We should send up our own balloon and shoot it down.
This is how Russia’s close ally Belarus treats American balloonists....

Probably over a Waffle House a few miles from Pennsylvania Ave.
Corrupt as can be.
Anyways, if they tell us where the third Chinese probe is, everyone who sees the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh will think it must be just the third.
