SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM LAST AUGUST. DANA. >> Dana: THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET’S BRING IN FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR AND FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO. COULD YOU LISTEN TO LLOYD AUSTIN DEFENSE SECRETARY FROM YESTERDAY? >> I WANT TO REASSURE AMERICANS THAT THESE OBJECTS DO NOT
PRESENT A MILITARY THREAT TO ANYONE ON THE GROUND. THEY DO, HOWEVER, PRESENT A RISK TO CIVIL AVIATION AND POTENTIALLY AN INTELLIGENCE COLLECTION THREAT. WE DON’T KNOW IF THEY WERE ACTUALLY COLLECTING INTELLIGENCE. BECAUSE OF THE ROUTE THEY TOOK OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION
WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO EXAMINE WHAT THESE THINGS ARE AND POTENTIALLY WHAT THEY WERE DOING. >> Dana: THERE IS A GLARING CONTRADICTION ABOUT THE FIRST BALLOON THAT TRAVERSED THE ENTIRE COUNTRY AND SHOT DOWN AND THEN THE OTHER THREE SHOT DOWN IMMEDIATELY, SIR.
>> YES, DANA. IT IS CONFUSING. ONE OF THE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES FOR AMERICAN SECURITY IS SHARE WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ACCURATE INFORMATION SO THEY KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON. IF THERE ARE THINGS THAT CAN’T SHOW TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THEY CAN DO IT WITH THE GANG OF EIGHT
OR INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE OR WITH ALL OF CONGRESS. THEY HAVEN’T DONE THAT. PRESIDENT BIDEN SHOULD BE SPEAKING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NOT SENDING OUT PROXY SPOKES PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAS BECOME A VERY SIGNIFICANT ISSUE. ALLIES ARE WONDERING WHAT IS HAPPENING ALSO.
THEY LOSE CONFIDENCE IN AMERICA AND IF YOU ADD THAT TO THE FACT PRESIDENT BIDEN FAILED TO PROTECT 13 AMERICAN SOLDIERS GETTING OUT OF AFGHANISTAN AND INVITED A MINOR INCURSION INTO UKRAINE AND NOW THIS, THIS IS WEAKNESS. IT IS PROVOCATIVE. THE BALLOON IS PART OF A
SYMPTOM. IT IS A THREAD IN AMERICAN NATIONAL SECURITY POLICY AND THAT’S THE REAL DANGER HERE. >> Dana: DO YOU THINK THE OTHER THREE SHOT DOWN WERE CHINESE? >> I DON’T KNOW. I HOPE THEY KNOW. THEY ORIGINALLY SAID THEY DON’T KNOW. NOW THEY SAY THEY DIDN’T PRESENT
A RISK TO ANYONE ON THE GROUND. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S IN THE BALLOONS OR WHAT THE GREATER STRATEGIC PLAN IS. I WHO APP THEY DO. THEY’VE SHOWN NO INDICATION THEY HAVE THEIR ARMS AROUND THIS. >> Dana: IS IT POSSIBLE THERE IS AN OVER REACTION TO WHAT IS
NORMAL, REGULAR OLD SPYING THAT COUNTRIES DO ON EACH OTHER? >> WELL, AS A FORMER C.I.A. DIRECTOR I’M AWARE OF ESPIONAGE AND EFFORTS BY LOTS OF COUNTRIES TO DO THESE KINDS OF THINGS IN TERMS OF COLLECTION. BUT IF YOU ASK IF THERE IS AN
OVERREACTION, THIS IS OUT OF PATTERN. THIS IS NOT NORMAL TO SHOOT DOWN FOUR THINGS IN A HANDFUL OF DAYS. THIS IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING THE UNITED STATES HAS ENGAGED IN BEFORE. SO AN EXPLANATION IS REQUIRED FOR WHY THEY ARE TREATING THESE OBJECTS DIFFERENTLY.
WHY THEY PERMITTED WHAT WAS REALLY SHAME ON AMERICA FOR THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION TO ALLOW THE BALLOON TO TRAVERSE THE COUNTRY FOR FIVE DAYS. THE GEOPOLITICAL RISK IS GREAT. THIS IS DIFFERENT THAN ANYTHING THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE SEEN IN AN AWFULLY LONG TIME, DANA.
>> Dana: I WAS SURPRISED THAT THE WHITE HOUSE MOCKED PEOPLE WHO ARE CONCERNED OR WORRIED OR THINKING LIKE IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO TELL US WHAT IT IS, OF COURSE PEOPLE WILL TRY TO IMAGINE WHAT IT COULD POSSIBLY BE. THREE UNIDENTIFIED FLYING
OBJECTS SHOT DOWN BY THE UNITED STATES ALL OF A SUDDEN. THAT CONDESCENSION DOESN’T SIT WELL. >> NO. THEY SHOULD NEVER SPEAK DOWN TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THEY ARE RIGHT TO ASK THE QUESTION WHAT IS GOING ON. AT LEAST EXPLAIN IT TO OUR REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS.
THEY HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO DO THAT. THEY SHOT THESE THINGS DOWN. I’M GLAD THEY RECOVERED THIS EQUIPMENT. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SHOULDN’T GO TO THE DARKEST CORNERS BUT THAT’S NOT APPROPRIATE, EITHER. VERY REASONABLE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO ASK WHAT IS GOING ON AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THESE
DOWN WHEN YOU NEVER DID THAT BEFORE? >> Dana: ARE YOU SURPRISED OUR MISSILE MISSED THE FIRST TIME WHEN THEY TRIED TO SHOOT IT DOWN OVER LIKE HURON. >> I DON’T KNOW THE CONDITIONS OR RANGE. OUR MILITARY IS AS GOOD AS ANY IN THE WORLD.
I’M CONFIDENT WE’RE DOING GOOD WORK. CONFIDENCE IN THE FOLKS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED T
Dana, I too own a Vizsla so I totally get your love for the breed. I've owned many dogs…. the Vizsla is in a class all by itself!!! You're the best!
Why did you delete that observation?
Dana Perino either does not like being around her Limey spouse. Or she is lonely without her FOX coworkers. Or she is a hopeless workaholic that needs an intervention asap. That lady works over 8 hours a day Monday through Friday. She’ll be on Gregory Gutfeld tonight at 11:00 pm eastern standard time.
Well I see the time I used today to represent any mistake my team may have missed. I hope tomorrow, the folks I represent will have a pleasant day at work for the Lord as well as.prepare for the Mornings
RESOURCE THE WEAKNESS…..AS YOU ENEMIES WREK MY LIFE .
Maybe Amelia Earhart knows where the balloons went.
FOX "NEWS" IS CONTROLLED OPPOSITION
They hit 15$ balloons (One of 3 Unknown) with $40K worth of missiles!
After the China Spy balloon crossed the whole country, they shot it down into Ocean!
After all the valuable data has been uploaded to CCP!
-Biden wants to apologize to China and wants to negotiate with China about John Kerry's plan to buy billions of $ battery and solar panels!
– Biden pushes new taxes on US oil companies!
– US imports Russian oil products!:
Bloomberg: India buys and refines cheap Russian oil and sells it to US and Europe!
Just last month, India exported about 89,000 barrels per day of gasoline and diesel only to New York!!
– What happened to Iran's regime sanctions?!
How do Iran's corrupt regime freely sell oil to China Communist? They import parts of helicopters, drones, missiles, bombs and even second-hand passenger planes (to carry weapons and drones for terrorists) from China, South Africa, Burkina Faso, Belarus, Canada and even USA!
– Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference Feb 17: "time is running out, while an evil regime is smuggling arms."
" Iran regime is no longer just a "local supplier" waging proxy wars in the region, it is a "multinational corporation", a global exporter of advanced weapons. From Belarus in Eastern Europe to Venezuela in South America, we have witnessed deliveries of drones and missiles with a range of up to 1,000 kilometers!”
– Does the west still want to ignore the Iranian movement against Iran's regime and make a failed nuclear deal with them to make China richer and terrorists more secure!?
Journalism looks like it is more of an art form that points to factual information with relevant significance, than a purely factual communication. The story is about UFO's as a matter of national security for the American people. It sounded like there is agreement that the balloon's were a threat as surveillance for intel, but it was presented as a 'glaring contradiction' to the agreement.
The last 3 balloons were an over reaction to an under reaction to the first CHINESE balloon…. Plain and simple
The Administration does what ever the media tells them to do. Media does what ever Obama and his inside posse say that includes Leon Pineda
"Look boss, look It's the plane boss, the plane!".
Name 1 thing that the Biden administration has done in 2 years.
Where are the photos of the other objects?
Sure thing Loyd, this happened on your watch.
Yeah, what's the deal?!
Our so-called leaders don't seem to know what they're doing. At the same time, they keep trying to reassure us that there is nothing to worry about.
Well, I, for one, don't trust them, and I sure don't believe them. Trying to get the truth out of these people is an exercise in futility.
Dana ,you are becoming a Beautiful young woman if I may say. your heart is pure and your Essence is glowing only in “The Best of Way “ if I may say.
It's a coverup – Hillary's clearly behind this.
I just tuned in to see her beautiful face❤️
There maybe some people who trust Biden… but I tend to believe that the majority of Americans want him impeached… or somehow his puppet strings cut so that he would no longer be controlled by Obama!
What we need is a different nature of change!
But why be worried about what info is being collected wen yall kept saying they got the blockers up and disrupted any attempts to "spy" 🤔 did yall really block the spying or jus more talking points
I saw the first balloon the day it supposedly entered Montana. Trouble is, I'm in Costa Rica.
Yeah, no, this is by far one of the less distressing things that America has f__ked up so far.
It's funny how people say "Uhh nüüüü, them üre spüüing on üsss" while at the same time the USA spies on every country,
using the vilest of means and has no respect for borders, laws, right and wrong, or anything of the like.
Sure, spying is wrong, that is something every decent person should be able to agree on.
But can we please stop with the whole "right or wrong my country" thing?
I must point out that Dana Perino, either due to partisan perceptions or possibly personal frustration at the Biden admin’s latent transparency, either emotionally misprojected KJP’s speech as condescending when there is no clear case for that assertion or misunderstood where the condescension was directed, if there was any condescension. If there was a public rebuke, it was directed at NORAD’s general who stated he wasn’t ruling anything out after being asked an ET question. Of course, the real gaslighting is, again, the Biden admin which appears to be denying one hard to believe question by implying an even harder to believe answer. First, they want you to believe there were no weapons of any kind aboard which they could have only confirmed by having technology that can scan for any virus from a significant distance – at least 4th or 5th generation Star Trek level scanning technology. Then they claim there are no indications of non-terrestrial intelligence implying they either have the capability to differentiate between human and non-human intelligence or, maybe, there was a big Made in Cuba label on the aircraft despite our inability to determine what the aircraft is. While we do have a few abilities to determine between human and AI intelligence, I have difficulty believing we have technology advanced enough to easily differentiate between human and non-terrestrial intelligence tech by now. If that were the case, they would have blown Elon Musk’s super-Einstein cover by now in order to identify the rest of us..(cough) I mean them by now. Jk, folks. 😛 There’s is totally no there, there! I am not deflecting in any way! 😶🌫️ Is it working?
Biden is not fit to be president he needs to step down
Its the most bizarre administration ever on this planet, Every word spoke, has to be read (red) off some teleprompter or sheet of paper, It's exactly like MSM, No matter what supposed fake news station, the exact words are essentially repeated over and over, And not so surprising any more is all the sheep that registered to vote that were sheared of their wool coat
Couldn't a balloon be shot down with a high powered rifle? Why do we need the military to use F22s and expensive missiles?
दुश्मनों को जगह नहीं मिल रहा हैं…? लोकल रिफ्यूजी हैं?💯👍👍👍👍👍
🤔 sure is lots of things destroying this country lately… railroads, mass water supply poisoning, food contamination and mass killings, electric grid, etc etc…..🤔
Dana's beautiful. One of the rare cases, at least in my opinion, where a lady has grown better looking as she slightly aged.
Thanks for your coverage Dana(and Mike)happy Valentines day Dana 😉
BUILD BACK BETTER! 😂 Biden Blasts Balloons as Border Breaks Down!
So it's not aliens…
Musk is a wannabe autocrat.
Well, as long as they don't carry a toxic payload to disperse.
Like always ,,,,STOP DESTROYING THE EVIDENCE
Fox please stop with the click bate titles it’s unprofessional and makes me not want to watch the vids
Just goes to show the government is weak and corrupt as all hell
Nord Stream blasts is more threat than balloon. Biden is very happy about his plot to initiate WWIII.
Bull, the first balloon has a large solar panel with a high-power antenna able to send out high-power signals thru China satellites back to China.
Joe has his sippy cup and taking a nap.
Can someone please call BS on them saying these were shot down due to the altitude being a risk to aviation? That excuse does not hold water as there are many things in these elevations that don't get shot down.
