Cornyn: Biden Admin Must Be Transparent on Unidentified Objects
WASHINGTON – Today on the floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the unidentified objects that have been shot down over North America, including a Chinese surveillance balloon, and called for transparency on these potential threats from the Biden administration. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here.
“It was a busy weekend for the United States military, which has now shot down three unidentified objects over North American airspace in as many days.”
“The American people watched as China’s surveillance balloon traveled across the country before President Biden finally instructed the military to shoot it down off the coast of South Carolina.”
“The military is still recovering pieces of that balloon from the bottom of the Atlantic in an effort to gain some answers. But given everything that has happened in the interim, the swirl of questions has only grown.”
“The only path forward is full and complete transparency.”
“President Biden needs to explain what happened and just how concerned the American people should be. And he needs to consult with Congress and share the information he has with us. Until that happens, speculation will only intensify.”
“All of our colleagues, Republican and Democrat alike, are eager to learn more. And I hope the administration will be what it has not yet been, and that is forthright and transparent.”
