1:27 During a portion of an interview with CBS News National Security Correspondent David Martin released on Wednesday, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin stated that in response to the Chinese spy balloon that flew over the country last week, the United States ensured that its nuclear bases “were buttoned down” and that “movement was limited and communications were limited so that we didn’t expose any capability unnecessarily.” Austin also stated that the buttoning down applied to nuclear bases all across the United States.

He needs to shut his filthy sewer.
The entire senior leadership of our military needs to be replaced. They’re utterly incompetent.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
The Big Guy didn’t get his 10% until the Chicom balloon crossed the entire country.
That $250,000 SUPPOSED "LOAN" on Biden's house was the BRIBE, perhaps?
Or maybe HUNTER'S paintings brought in enough CASH from China to allow for complete passage of this spy balloon?
But it was unnecessary because stupid people in the Pentagon tell us the balloon didn’t send any data to China.
I guess technically it sent data toba satellite that sent it to China, so...
What a steaming pile of crap.
Why don’t we use buried fiber optic cables as a back-up for communicating to nuclear facilities?
But they’re too stupid to shoot it in Alaska first
Thanks for clarifying that. Now back to pandering to fags
You’re quite the pilot, Mr. Chang.
And judging by your camera, you’re into photography.
Why would you even come out and say this? Dumbassery abounds. The Chinese can shut us down by sending balloon after balloon.
What a pathetic affirmative-action fag-loving woke-joke “General” Austin is.
So that’s why there was less activity at...and...
Too bad it couldn’t force him to shoot it down.
Beat ne to it.
Then you should’ve shot it down earlier
Yes he does.
